The renowned KTM Junior Supercross exhibition will feature during the Australian round of the 2022 World Supercross Championship (WSX) at Marvel Stadium in Victoria.

Set for Saturday, 22 October, KTM Junior Supercross will return to Melbourne, where it also featured at the AUS-X Open event three years ago.

A selection of 18 lucky junior racers will be treated to a full factory VIP experience, including riding a race-prepared KTM 50 SX, receiving a KTM gift pack and a full set of riding gear to keep, plus trophies for the podium finishers.

Also included in the opportunity is an exclusive track walk, practice sessions, an autograph session and a fun-filled exhibition event during the WSX program that will feature a mix of the world’s top international supercross riders on-track right here in Australia.

“The KTM Junior Supercross is the experience of a lifetime,” commented Kyle Blunden, KTM Group Australia motorsport manager. “Aspiring young racers and their mechanic of choice are treated to the KTM Racing Team experience at the biggest supercross races in the world.

“Founded at KTM North America 23 years ago, KTM Junior Supercross has seen some of the biggest names in Supercross go through the program and years later go on to being household names like Ryan Dungey, Cooper Webb and many more.

“We’re so excited to be a part of World Supercross and to see this event back at Marvel Stadium in 2022, showcasing riding and racing motorcycles as a family activity and just how accessible it is, especially for the junior racers among us.”

Applications are now open and the event is available exclusively to KTM customers. Entry criteria applies, with the last 12 months of racing results considered, while every applicant is to provide their latest school report card, plus height and weight requirements are also to be met.
