Motorcycling Australia (MA) and the ProMX Management team are thrilled to announce 3 new Australian Champions have been crowned across their respective classes of the Penrite ProMX Championship presented by AMX Superstores (ProMX): Luke Clout (MX1), Kyle Webster (MX2), and Blake Fox (MX3).
The ProMX Management team has today made official the difficult decision to conclude the inaugural ProMX Championship after three rounds of the Championship have been run. Unfortunately, after no clear directives have developed from State Governments as to a realistic time frame around state border openings, the necessary decision has been made that the ProMX Championship cannot be completed in a timely manner before the end of 2021.
The ProMX management team wishes to acknowledge all competitors, teams and fans for their support and persistence in an incredibly challenging domestic climate here in Australia over the past twelve months since the new ProMX Championship was announced.
We are proud that at a minimum, we were able to run three championship events of the inaugural ProMX Championship, crown Champions in their respective classes and establish a return to racing in Motocross on a national level for the first time since 2019.
“It’s strange to think that I have won a championship while sitting on the couch, but I guess everything about 2020 and 2021 has been strange,” Clout said in a statement from Yamaha. “It’s not the way I want or would like to win it as I am a racer and I just want to be out on the track challenging myself against the other riders, but I truly believe that I had put in the work, the CDR Yamaha team provided me with the best bike, and this championship was going to be mine.
“This is my first MX1 championship of my career and regardless of the shortened championship, I’m proud of it. As a team we had to overcome challenges from round one. We had to rebound quickly to get back in the championship at Canberra, so everyone combined to get the job done by the end of round three we were back in front.
“Thank you to everyone on the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team and all of our great sponsors and partners. It’s easy to see why the team has such continued success and I can’t thank them enough for the work they put in.”
The experience gained this year will serve as a fantastic base for the 2022 ProMX Championships, with preparation already well underway. Guaranteed to be bigger and better in 2022, fans and industry can expect exciting announcements very soon around next year's Championship developments.
ProMX wishes to extend a further thank you to all industry partners of the series, whom without your support and dedication, the 2021 ProMX Championships would not have been possible. We look forward to strengthening our relationships with you into the 2022 Championship.
The ProMX Championship Press Conference will take place via an online based Zoom platform tonight at 6pm AEDT where the top three in each Championship class will be awarded their Championship placings virtually and be present for limited media questions for all attending media.
