Port Macquarie-Hastings Council set to welcome Motul MX Nationals

Motul MX Nationals press release:

This coming weekend the Australian Motul MX Nationals will make its way to Port Macquarie in Northern New South Wales for the first time in the championship’s history, for the eighth round of this year’s series.

More than 100 of the country’s fastest motocross riders as well as event support staff are set to make their way to the coastal town on July 30, filling accommodation venues, restaurants, and injecting local businesses with significant revenue over the action packed weekend.

Motul MX Nationals Series Promoter Kevin Williams says that his team is excited for the event’s visit to Port Macquarie, and shared that the first of three championships will be decided as part of Round 8 next Sunday.

“It’s been a long time coming, and we’re very excited to finally be heading to Port Macquarie for the eighth round of our Championship next Sunday,” Williams shared.

“Port Macquarie has always been somewhere that we have wanted to take the championship, and this year all of the stars aligned so we’re eager to see how the event is received.

“We’re looking forward to doing our bit to bring our sport to the people, as well as provide a boost to the area’s local economy.

“Next weekend we will be wrapping up our first championship, the Pirelli MXD class. This is the first time we’ve concluded the Under 19’s title at Round 8 in a number of years, so it’s very exciting for the fans who are coming along, as they will witness us crowning our first 2017 Champion.

“We have been very lucky to receive support from the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, and we believe the Motul MX Nationals will be a great event for sports fans, families, children and more.”

Port Macquarie-Hastings Deputy Mayor, Lisa Intemann enthusiastically welcomed the championships to the region.

“It’s fantastic that we can attract a national event of this calibre to the Port Macquarie-Hastings, and thank the Hastings Valley Motorcycle Club for all their hard work in securing the event,” Intemann shared.

“We’d encourage all competitors, their families and support crew to explore all that our beautiful area has to offer, and urge locals and visitors alike to head out on competition day to watch the best motocross riders in the country battle it out.”

The eighth round of the Motul MX Nationals is set to be held in Port Macquarie on Sunday July 30, 2017.
