Over the past week ACU Events have been hosting meetings to inform the organisers and teams involved in the 2016 Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship Supported by Pro Clean about the all-new and exciting prospects of the new season. The purpose of the meetings was also to build a bridge of communication between everyone involved, which includes the organisers, teams and manufacturers, something ACU Events believes is essential in developing a stronger and more successful championship that will move in a circle to benefit absolutely everyone involved.
The meetings took place at ACU House, where the organisers congregated on Monday 15th February while the Teams gathered on Wednesday the 17th.
During the conferences Mr. Stuart Drummond, on behalf of ACU Events, expressed his gratitude to everyone involved for their constant support and enthusiasm before touching base on the general topics such as rule changes and new developments.
In addition to the introduction of the new and exciting calendar the ACU Events team was also introduced:
• Stuart Drummond Championship Manager
• Steve McCauley Race Director
• Roy Humphrey ACU Events Timing Services
• Iain Dobie CMO (Doctor)
• Nikki Scott Press / Media / Social Media
• Robin Griffith Paddock Coordinator
• Terry Brown ACU Appointed Technical Official
• Ben Coles Assistant Technical Official
• Sonia Goggin ACU Events Secretary / Hospitality
Also new in 2016, a Social Media Strategy has been introduced and will be managed by Nikki Scott, who is also the Social Media Manager for MXGP, the FIM Motocross World Championship. With Social Media being the number one tool for marketing and fan interaction and engagement, ACU Events believes it is a vital tool in increasing awareness of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship, not just globally, but internationally.
Stuart Drummond commented “The interaction with Teams and Organisers is always good. We get excellent feedback which then allows us to implement new ideas to benefit the Series”
