AUS-X Open organisers have announced a move from Sydney to Marvel Stadium at Melbourne’s Docklands for their signature supercross event.
AUS-X Open Chairman – Tony Cochrane (Founder of V8 Supercars), states a move to Melbourne will open up a world of opportunity as this exciting event looks to expand and build on its already popular foundations.
“Since its inception, the AUS-X Open has grown from strength-to-strength to a point where we’ve found ourselves in the fortunate situation of needing to expand to cater for the growing appetite of Supercross racing and more broader sports fans across the country,” Cochrane said. Melbourne is renowned for hosting some of the world’s greatest sporting events and what better place than Marvel Stadium to deliver a world-class event to a world-class audience.” “The AUS-X Open Melbourne will be bigger, faster, louder, featuring more entertainment and greater accessibility to these international megastars than ever before, and I can’t wait for November 30 to showcase this amazing spectacle to the people of Melbourne. It really has to be seen to be believed.”
November 30 will see Australia and New Zealand’s best riders go head-to-head against the world’s best at Marvel Stadium with a junior class also on show, with competitors as young as six set to compete in front of the huge Melbourne crowd.
Organisers promise that fans will be blown away by the full-sized World Championship style track, that will test man and machine like never before.
The AUS-X Open will move to Melbourne from Sydney as part of a partnership with the Victorian Government via its tourism and major events agency, Visit Victoria. It has the full support of the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events, The Hon. Martin Pakula.
“Victoria is unmatched as the sporting and event capital of Australia and we’re so excited to bring the AUS-X Open to a world-class venue like Marvel Stadium,” said Mr Pakula. Melbourne’s sporting calendar continues to be the envy of cities across Australia and around the world. We’re thrilled to add AUS-X Open to the list, this November. Major events, such as the AUS-X Open, are hugely important to our visitor economy, helping to drive Melbourne’s international positioning and profile, tourism, branding and business links.”
