Motorcycling Australia (MA) is pleased to announce that KTM Australia has extended its naming rights sponsorship agreement for the Australian Junior Motocross Championship (AJMXC) until 2020 in an exciting commitment that will mark an incredible eight-year partnership.
KTM Australia’s involvement with the AJMXC is the famous Austrian manufacturer’s way of ensuring the event remains at the pinnacle of junior motocross (MX) racing in Australia. The AJMXC already enjoys immense popularity, and is likely to experience healthy growth in the coming years. KTM has been the event’s official naming rights sponsor since 2013.
KTM Australia’s General Manager, Jeff Leisk is pleased to announce the continuation of the sponsorship.
“Junior development is crucial towards our industry, without it we simply do not have a sport,” Leisk said. “A key strategy of KTM is to give aspiring young riders the best riding experience possible from their very first ride on a motorcycle. KTM is the only brand in the market that can offer customers the ability to progress in a competitive sense all the way through their motorcycling journey.
“Many riders have famously progressed through their entire careers solely on KTM machinery and the brand has assisted numerous riders to achieve their dreams of winning titles. KTM is heavily involved at each AJMXC, including providing a team to assist with technical support and spare parts. It’s all part of KTM’s mission to provide exceptional service to its customers and racers.” Leisk finished.
This year’s 2017 KTM AJMXC, will take place at the Horsham Motorcycle Club in Victoria (September 30 – October 6).
