AMCA QX1 QUADCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP GATHERS SPEED
Report by Jenni Foulkes
The working title for the new initiative is the AMCA Pro QX1 Quadcross Championship, but this could change when a title sponsor gets on board. However, the ethos of the series will not change and that is to provide a well-organised set of fast races for expert quad racers, presenting a high level of professionalism to a wide audience.
The dates and venues of the series which will run alongside the newly-introduced AMCA National Championship are;
Round 1. 19th April – Bromsberrow, near Ledbury
Round 2. 17th May – Lower Drayton, Stafford
Round 3. 31st May – Ollerton, near Market Drayton, Shropshire
Round4. 12th July – Little Bowden, Northampton
Round 5. 9th August – Nympsfield, Stroud
Oli Sansom is the spokesperson for the quad element of the National Championship; “There has already been a high level of interest from a number of top quad racers from across all corners of the UK and Europe,” said Sansom. “We want to make it clear that we are keen to hear from all expert/clubman elite riders. However, we can only run one class for the quads in this first year, and so we have to draw the line somewhere with regard to the experience of the competitors. This is as much for safety as it is to putting on a great spectacle of quad racing at the highest level of the sport.
“If this year takes off, and the numbers and interest are there, then we will hope be able to progress it in the second year and include a Support/QX2 class.
“We will have a healthy prize fund, which will allow us to reward competitors at each round, as well as trophies and end-of-season prizes. We’ll also be part of the AMCA presentation at the Dirt Bike Show and have guaranteed media support from Dirt Hub, Quad-Online and TMX News.
“I’d like to point out that this series with the AMCA is not in competition with any other national or British quad championship. It offers something new and fresh. I’ll be riding in other championships, as will the majority of the riders.
“There’s a small team working on this, but we’re throwing everything into making it a shop window to showcase our sport. Huge thanks to those who have already registered and also to those who have expressed an interest in taking part.”
