The Penrite ProMX Championship will once again open at Wonthaggi next year with the regional Victorian venue to commence the eight-round 2024 national motocross season.

It will mark the fourth consecutive year that the complex will host round one of ProMX, with next season to get underway on Sunday, 17 March.

“We’re looking forward to an even bigger year for ProMX in 2024, and starting the championship in Wonthaggi will provide an ideal platform to make that happen,” said Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle.

“The rapid growth of the ProMX championship since its inception is a testament to the tireless and determined efforts of so many, which is why it’s held in such high regard domestically and internationally. And the Dandenong Motorcycle Club is an example of how to breed success with its unwavering commitment to the Wonthaggi opener.

“The start of any Australian championship is always exciting, and I expect Wonthaggi to be the same vein as the best motocrossers in the country get to work. Definitely a must-see event on the national calendar, and a big thank you to Bass Coast Shire Council and Destination Gippsland for help making it happen.”

The Dandenong Motorcycle Club-run Wonthaggi event will be the start of an eight-round ProMX Championship in 2024, which will conclude in August. Further announcements on the 2024 calendar will be made in the coming weeks, as well as the class composition at each round.
