Plans for the Australian Supercross Championship to return this year are on track with a five-round series due to be formally announced next month.

The championship, which had gone from strength to strength in 2019 under the management of promoter AUS SX Holdings, was forced to be cancelled in a Covid-impacted 2020, however given the uncertainty throughout the pandemic, series updates have been scarce since that announcement was made in September last year.

The series is set to receive a boost in many respects in its comeback later this year, where a new group of event promoters are set to be introduced, along with the addition of a naming rights partner and a free-to-air television package.

“The dates are on the MA (Motorcycling Australia) website already, but we’re going to announce a five-round series in June,” AUS SX Holdings co-founder Adam Bailey explained to “It’s a whole new promoter group this year, which we’re really excited about – all of those details will be announced in June.

“There will be [a TV package] – again, we’re really excited about it. It might be released at a later date, but there will be a free-to-air television package.”

The initial outline for the series indicates it will kick-off on 16 October before wrapping up on 27 November. The official locations and venues are set to be included in the June announcement.
