The Queensland Motocross Subcommittee is pleased to announce that renowned helmet brand Airoh will return as naming sponsor of the freshly revamped Airoh Series Sunshine State 2019.
Since its inception as a B & C Grade series more than 25 years ago, the ‘Sunny States’ have made a consistent contribution to the development of Queensland’s racing stocks, and established a reputation as a proving ground for up-and-coming riders.
Similarly, Airoh Helmet has also been around for more than 20 years, developing a well-established track record for helping Champions rise to their potential, and as such, it’s the perfect partner.
"Airoh Helmet is very excited to be the title sponsor of the Sunshine State MX Series for the third year in a row,” says Chris Lynis, Media Manager of Airoh Helmet’s Australian distributor Moto National.
“While Airoh Helmet is very famous at the top level of racing with 86 world titles in 21 years, we understand that every world champion started as a young kid at their local track, and this is why we are 100% committed to supporting grass roots racing, to help the future world champions perfect their skills and show everyone what they can do.”
Averaging around 330 riders per round, the series contributes significantly to the ‘dirt bike economy’ that fuels small towns in South-East Queensland, while offering competitors the best prizemoney of any comparable series.
This year’s incarnation will see a mix of trusted and true venues and exciting new additions to the calendar, with the respected Suncoast Junior Motorcycle Club both raising and lowering the curtain on the series, with two rounds at its iconic Coolum track.
In between though, riders will take on a variety of challenges to grow their skills, re-visiting old favourites like a recently-updated Roma, Kilcoy and Goondiwindi. A delay in the development of Tivoli Raceway means the famous and hallowed turf will be used for a major motocross meeting at least one more time, as it now slots into round three of the series.
New Series Coordinator Rachelle Houterman is anything but a new face on the scene, and in taking over the reins from Jason Watson, will look to maintain what’s great about the series, but improve what she can.
She’ll again assume the role of Race Secretary for the series and will steer the ship overall with help from both the Motocross Subcommittee and the promoting clubs and series officials.
Sponsorship opportunities still exist for the Sunshine State MX Series. Please contact Rachelle direct on 0409 174 273 or email .
