The championship and support category structure of the 2015 Australian Supercross Championship has been announced, headlined by the premier SX1 and SX2 classes across all rounds.

Headlining the bill, the sport’s premier SX1 (450) and SX2 (250) racers will compete at all six rounds, while SXD (Under 19s) riders will compete at four rounds.

The SXD rounds will be made up of Bathurst (round one), Wayville (round three), Sunshine Coast (round four) and Melbourne (round six) for the season finale.

Junior Lites, Junior 85/150cc (14 to under 16 years), SX1 Intermediate/Clubman and SX2 Intermediate/Clubman class riders will gain valuable on-track experience at no less than five of the six rounds.

These events include round one at Bathurst, round two at Jimboomba, round three at Wayville, round four at the Sunshine Coast and the final round at in Melbourne. Further, Women’s class racing will be held at the final round at Knights Stadium, Melbourne.

Finally, Arenacross stadium motocross racing for Junior and Senior classes will also be held at two rounds, which include round one at Bathurst and the final round at Knights Stadium in Melbourne.

“All six Australian Supercross Championship events are set to deliver spectacular racing,” said Mark Luksich, series co-ordinator for the 2015 Australian Supercross Championship. “It is vitally important for the future of the sport that as many classes as possible have the opportunity to experience racing before large crowds at high profile events and that is especially so for Junior racers, which this year are being welcomed back to Supercross.”

In recent years only limited Junior classes have been approved for racing at supercross events, which in most cases has been Junior Lites (250) racing for riders aged 14 to under 16.
