Australia gets Enduro X series in 2014

Australia is set to enjoy a three-round Enduro X series next year, with promoters RBP Promotions taking the smart decision to run the championship over just a four-week period. The reason for the compact championship? The hope that international racers will journey to Oz and compete in the February 2 – March 2 championship…

RBP Promotions has announced a three-round KTM Australian Enduro-X Nationals series, set to commence next year, February 2. The series has been structured to be run after the Australian summer break, and before the 2014 Australian Off-Road Championship (AORC), giving both Australian and International riders a chance to contest for the $50,000 of total prize money up for grabs.

After the 2013 Enduro-X event at Calder Park Raceway in Melbourne, the organisers have been overwhelmed by the support they’ve received from the motorcycle industry, the riders and the public, to take this exiting spectator sport to a national level. “After two successful events in Melbourne and industry support growing, it was the logical next step to take the event to a semi-national series,” said Promoter, Dave Robbins. “Our sponsors have supported us; the riders enjoy the concept and the spectators like being up close to the action. With good venues and facilities close to capital cities it allows for greater crowd interaction, both on the track and in the open pit area.

“We have introduced a Saturday night event for Sydney to vary it up a little, as the Sydney complex allows us to. With a compact series of three rounds lasting four weeks in duration, it opens the door for many top-level international riders to compete against Australia’s best riders.”

KTM Australia’s Jeff Leisk has thrown his full support behind the series. “We are delighted to be involved in this exciting concept of motorcycle racing in Australia,” said Leisk. “The sport’s growth in such a short time in Australia has been amazing.”
