The 2021 ProMX Australian Motocross Championship and Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC) will combine to stage a double-header event at Queensland Moto Park between 6-8 August.

Rounds seven and eight of the AORC season will take place on the Friday and Saturday, before Sunday will see round six of ProMX on track in the national championship’s first appearance at the Coulson-based venue.

“Motorcycling Australia is ecstatic to announce the final pieces of both the AORC and ProMX Championship calendars for 2021,” commented Motorcycling Australia (MA) CEO Peter Doyle. “This event will be the ultimate off-road and motocross weekend and must attend event in 2021 for Australian off-road and motocross fans.

“Significant work by both the AORC and ProMX management teams have secured this sensational event at QMP, which will provide spectacular racing from Australia’s best enduro and motocross riders.”

Motorcycling Queensland general manager Kim Rowcliffe added: “We are very excited to be able to host the first event with two major Australian championships events running alongside one another in the AORC and the ProMX.

“We have a venue here at Queensland Moto Park that will set up a perfect three days and we know fans will be salivating at the chance to get to Queensland Moto Park for an ultimate weekend of action and we can’t wait to see them there.”

Queensland Moto Park officially opened in December 2011, becoming one of the most frequented riding locations in the state and within an hour and a half of both Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Next year will mark the first time that MA has managed both the AORC and ProMX series internally.
