Thor will be the title sponsor of the 2021 Penrite ProMX Championship when it commences at Wonthaggi in April, maintaining its support of the premier class in Australian Motocross.

With Maxxis already announced to be supporting MX3 and Pirelli continuing in MX2 through the new season, Thor has been named the official backer of the MX1 category under Motorcycling Australia (MA) management.

“Partnering with ProMX and MX1 class is a perfect fit to showcase Thor’s world class line of apparel alongside some of the best 450cc class riders in the world,” GAS Imports owner Doug Sharp stated.

“With the recent addition of the Thor Reflex Helmet, along with the Thor Prime Pro and Pulse apparel lines, we see this partnership with the MX1 class as a fantastic and exciting initiative to showcase the Thor range to a huge audience, utilise each race event for exciting activations and helping to support the Australian racing industry.”

MA CEO Peter Doyle added: “It is really exciting for ProMX and the MX1 class to have a world leading brand in Thor supporting the championship in our inaugural year. Fans trackside will also benefit from the Thor partnership with MA and ProMX as the company plans to hold a number of fan activations throughout the year giving spectators even more reason to get to the track.”
