Australian Supercross Championship organisers have confirmed a total of $120,000 in prize money for the 2015 series, which will be spread across the professional and privateer contingent throughout the season.

The new season will span six rounds, including Sydney’s marquee AUS-X Open event in November, and events will be arranged by a range of private promoters in association with Motorcycling Australia (MA).

While the breakdown of prize money is yet to be made official, it’s understood it will be paid out round-by-round, for the championship overall, as well as a sizable championship privateer pool. Further information could be confirmed as soon as this afternoon.

“Under Motorcycling Australia the new structure aims to create a greater presence for supercross and build awareness within mainstream society,” Australian Supercross coordinator Mark Luksich explained.

“We want the promoters to focus on their respective rounds and we will aide in other areas such as championship sponsors, manufacturer involvement, rules and regulations. It’s about building a stable foundation everyone can build a strong business on.

“To be able to confirm this level of prize money for the series is a terrific day for motorcycle sport in Australia and it is a testament to everyone involved that combined we have been able to achieve this.”

The 2015 Australian Supercross Championship will see events held in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria, with the season-opener once again held on the V8 Supercars’ Bathurst 1000 weekend in town on Saturday, 10 October.

Incorporating a mix of outdoor and indoor stadium events the 2015 series offers spectators and competitors a robust series which will deliver world class tracks, premier venues and a range of spectator experiences.
