Taupo Motorcycle Club

Ben Townley, 2004 World MX2 Champion and 2007 AMA SX East Coast Lites Champion has continued a life-time of passion for the sport by developing a new form of Supercross/mix Motocross and Speedway on a specially prepared track.

Having announced his retirement from Professional Motocross racing, BT has fulfilled his desire to provide an event which has spectator appeal with its short, fast 4 riders, 4 laps racing.

BT says:Speedcross is only a year old. We built the track 12 months ago.

My thought process for now in NZ is to fill the gap of Supercross racing as there doesn’t seem to be much interest for SX in this country. I have a lot of passion for SX being the only rider to have success internationally.

I want to see NZ have a spectator style event and I think Speedcross can fill that gap.

A wide range of competitors can ride and compete, we’ve already had a 50cc mini rider of 4 years of age through to a 72 year old and everyone in between’.

With long-term plan in place on the development of Speedcross in NZ, Ben is confidently determined to progress the sport from its initial event to a larger Series.

BT: I would like to see a stand-alone event for minis, Juniors, Support, Seniors and Vets in the near future. After that I would like to see a NZ Series and then after that some International events’.

Saturday evening Speedcross schedule is: ‘one class “Allstars”, 12 motos of racing to determine top 8, 2 semi-final races to decide top 4 for Final Race.

There will be electronic timing. Racing starts 6.00pm- 7.30pm at Taupo Motorcycle Clubs Digger McEwen MX Park.

And BT is racing!!

Event: Speedcross at Taupo Motorcycle Club MX Fest, Labour Weekend October 25th and 26th.
