Australia’s 2015 MX Nationals Preview

Australia’s 2015 MX Nationals kicks off at Horsham, Victoria this weekend in what is expected to be a spectacular 10 Round Series for Professional and Privateer Riders and fans.

WEM Managing Director Kevin Williams is excited to get the Opening Round under way with plenty of track action for fans at the Rounds plus new live viewing of every moto from NRGTV:

Kevin: ‘This year’s Series is looking great, we couldn’t be happier with the new stuff going on. We have our free new online magazine and a new livestream channel site where you can watch every moto live’.

With over 796,000 facebook likes, Kevin Williams has maintained a strong sense of making incremental improvements from Series to Series and 2015 is no exception with a total of 8 classes selected over 10 Rounds.

Kevin: ‘We are constantly making small improvements to the Series- it’s all about the 1% changes that keeps it improving- things like better social media coverage for riders, for the Series and new live stream viewing’.

The opportunity for riders with varying levels of ability and age to compete in a National Series is on a par with MXGP incorporating EMX into Europe’s Championship Series which not only provides valuable race experience but also increases numbers on gate.

Kevin: ‘We looked at trying to create opportunities for as many rider’s as possible to experience a premier event while still creating something good for the fans’.

Not to be out-done by Australia’s depth of talent, NZ has a strong line-up in MX1 and MX2: Cody Cooper current NZ MX Champion, John Phillips, Hamish Harwood and Rhys Carter.

Q: ‘How do you rate Kiwi vs Aussie competition on the track?’

Kevin: ‘Well to be honest they keep taking the silverware home but it’s great for the Series. We love having them here’.

Kevin: ‘I think it’s great how we work together to make sure the opportunity is there and allows riders to do both Series without clashing. Our tracks are still quite different so it will be interesting to see if the front guys there can keep that momentum come this Sunday’.

My thanks to Kevin Williams WEM.
