2016 KTM Australian Amateur Cup set to be decided at Toowoomba this Sunday
This Sunday the KTM Australian Amateur Cup will roar back to life for the final time this year, with the 2016 champion set to be crowned at Round 9 of the Motul MX Nationals at Toowoomba in Queensland.
The KTM Australian Amateur Cup which is a class solely dedicated to giving riders who may work and not race full time, with an opportunity to participate at a competitive level at the MX Nationals, have had two rounds of racing already, with Round 9 at Toowoomba marking the third and final outing for the hard working competitors.
Motul MX Nationals Series Promoter Kevin Williams shared that it’s been fantastic to see more than 40 privateer riders take part in this year’s Amateur Cup, and that this weekend will see all rewarded for their hard work and dedication.
“It’s always great to crown new champions, and this weekend we are very proud to be hosting the third and final round of the 2016 KTM Australian Amateur Cup,” Williams shared.
“We recognise that the level of competitiveness in the MX1, MX2, and MXD classes is very high which is fantastic, so the Amateur Cup has really provided a category where riders who can’t commit to a full series can race for their own championship.
“We have been lucky enough to see a great number of talented riders come through the Amateur Cup this year, and when it’s all run and won at Toowoomba this weekend, they will all have a lot to be proud of.”
Williams also shared that there will be some new faces taking part in the final round of the KTM Australian Amateur Cup at Toowoomba this Sunday.
“As well as regulars to the circuit such as guys like points leader Brad Polsoni and Kerrod Morrissy, this weekend will also see some new faces lining up to go racing at Toowoomba,” Williams said.
“The Amateur Cup is fantastic in that you can be a guy who just rides on the weekend, a local racer, or someone who’s looking to dip their toe into the water at the MX Nationals with the vision to make a bigger commitment to the series in the future.
“The racing in the class has been top notch so far this year, and spectators can expect the same from the support class when they hit the track for the final time this weekend too.”
