The FIM Junior Motocross World Championship will travel to a new host in Horsham, Australia for 2018. Horsham is the capital of Wimmera located in the Grampians North West Region of Victoria, Australia approximately 300 km from Melbourne. A vibrant city that has a regional growing population of 20,000 people with the beautiful Wimmera River flowing through the center. The area has diverse business industries such as agriculture, health services, education, Arts, Culture, and tourism.
The Horsham Motorcycle club is a renowned Australian track for the continuous improvements to its facilities. The track is considered to be relatively fast and flowing with various obstacles.
Recently Youthstream Representative, Patricia Maskarova and MXGP Race Director, Mr. Ingo Partsch travelled to the site of the event to meet with Kenny Watts, President of the Horsham Motorcycle Club, Peter Brown, CEO of Horsham Rural City Council, Jacqui Hill, Secretary of Horsham Motorcycle Club, Pam Clarke, Mayor of Horsham Rural City Council, Mark Hancock, Clerk of Course, and Laurie Pearson, Treasurer of the Horsham Motorcycle Club.
As a result of the Inspection Youthstream and the FIM are very satisfied and both are very pleased to see the support and willingness of the town and local council to organize the event this 26th of August 2018.
