Motorcycling Australia (MA) has confirmed that the 2018 Australian Junior Motocross Championship (AJMX) will be held in Penguin, Tasmania and hosted by the Coastal Motorcross Club (CMXC) in late September/early October.

Set to be held at the facility that hosted the 2015 Australian Four-Day Enduro, this announcement marks the first time since the AJMX has taken place in the island state since 2004.

“The club is looking forward to hosting the AJMX, being the pinnacle of junior championships in Australia,” said president Stuart Weller. “The CMXC club and committee are very excited to have this high profile event back in Tasmania, we will strive to make this an enjoyable and memorable event for all competitors and mainland visitors.

“I know Coastal Motocross Club with the support of all the clubs in Tasmania will do a fantastic job of hosting the Australian junior championships for 2018. Tasmania is a beautiful place at that time of the year, and it will be great for locals to have the chance to come and enjoy some of the best motocross talent Australia has to offer on one of the top tracks in the country.”

The 2018 World Junior Motocross Championships will also be held in Australia on 30 August at Horsham prior to the 2018 Australian Junior Motocross Championship in Penguin.
