Mackay and Coffs Harbour the new additions entering next season.
The complete 2022 Penrite ProMX Championship calendar has been released, expanded to be staged over eight individual weekends for next season.
It had already been confirmed that Wonthaggi would open the series in Victoria on 27 March, before travelling north to Mackay in Queensland on 10 April alongside the Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC).
Remaining rounds of the schedule are now also official, with round three set for Wodonga, VIC, on 1 May, followed by Gillman, SA, on 29 May, Maitland, NSW, on 26 June, Coffs Harbour, NSW, on 24 July, Queensland Moto Park on 14 August and Coolum between 20-21 August.
“After the tremendous success of the inaugural ProMX Championship in 2021, Motorcycling Australia and the ProMX Management team are further committed to expanding on all areas of the championship for the 2022 season” said Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle.
“There has been significant investment in the ProMX Championship to help elevate the sport of motocross in Australia. The new initiatives we were able to introduce such as an international TV package and the addition of the Maxxis MX3 class to help the next generation of the sport chase their racing dreams, has seen great reception from the riders, fans and industry alike.
“Our goals and commitment to the ProMX Championship remain the same in 2022 and this is to further develop a strong platform for the long term success of Australian motocross on a national level and to provide a pathway for future champions.”
With only the Wonthaggi, Canberra and Maitland events taking place this season, it is the ACT round that has been removed from the 2022 calendar despite its successful return this year. Coolum won’t be a double-header, but will remain over two days.
