State motocross history

Thanks to your help, AMX History now has a complete list of Australian Motocross Champions back to the inaugural event at Korweinguboora in Victoria on 14 November 1953.

There are still some gaps in the placings at National level, which we’ll continue to research, but over time it is planned to research and include the State Motocross Champions.

Work is under way on the Western Australian State Motocross history, which includes this information:

  • State Motocross Legends
  • State Motocross Championship Lists
  • State Motocross Programs
  • State Motocross history
  • State Motocross Clubs
  • State Motorcycling Associations. 

Western Australia has played a big part in the history of Australian Motocross.

Between 1928 to 1964 the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Club ran the famous Harley Scramble at the Rope Works Circuit in Mosman Park, before it moved to other venues.
