WAMX would like to inform the public and the motocross community that Round 2 of the WAMX State Junior and Senior Motocross Championships will not go ahead at Lightweight Motorcycle Club in Byford on the Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of May.
These are difficult times for everyone at the moment and we appreciate your patience and understanding for the postponement of our events. We are saddened that Round 1 and Round 2 have been postponed and will not go ahead as per the schedule, however the safety and health of everyone is our number one priority.
For those who have entered for Round 2 and for a Series Entry for 2020 you will be given a full refund as quickly as it can be processed.
WAMX will keep everyone informed as to what the operations for the State Series will be for 2020. We thank everyone for their support, and we hope to have continued support for the remainder of this year and next year. All attendees at events are reminded to follow the government’s advice, keep up hygiene and health routines, and if they feel unwell should not attend.
The postponement of these Rounds/Events have been taken into consideration with the new Government Implementations that have been into effect as of recent. Due to these regulations for the COVID-19, the decision was based off of the health and wellbeing for those attending the events. Please read below:
Mass Events Over 500
“Non-essential mass gatherings of more than 500 people are banned. Outdoor events of fewer than 500 attendees may proceed providing they follow the measures in place. See updated events and gathering information below”.
“All non-essential indoor gatherings of greater than 100 people (including staff) will no longer be permitted from Wednesday, 18 March 2020. A new one person per four square metres (2m x 2m) of floor space rule has been introduced. It applies to non-essential gatherings, in many different circumstances. It does not include places such as schools or the Parliament”.
“There may be other gatherings that are considered essential and it is at the discretion of the individual state and territory Chief Health Officers to determine if they will provide any exemptions to this restriction”.
