World Class Indoor Motocross Racing
The Pro & Pro Lite Class
A 24 strong line up of the best professional indoor motocross racers on the planet will descend on Belfast, Birmingham and Sheffield to race, two nights in each city in their bid for AX Glory.
For 2019 all 7 previous champs are returning to the start line to battle for AX Glory once again. Reigning champ Cedric Soubeyras (Team FRO Systems), three-time Arenacross Pro winner Thomas Ramette (SR75 Suzuki), Fabien Izoird (Shocktech Kawasaki) and the first-ever Arenacross Pro titleholder Adam Chatfield (Wooldridge Demolition) were eager to secure their place on the startline, as were a long list of leading international indoor racing specialists.
The completely-new race-night set-up will see 12 riders, of the highest calibre, contest each of the Pro and Pro Lites Main Events, with the top six from each group automatically seeded through to the evening’s climax; The Super Final Main Event.
On the Pro class front, 12 of the best indoor Pro motocross riders from around the world will compete in two-rider teams, with a substantial pot of cash up for grabs. The Pro Lites category is restricted to the very fastest riders of 18-years-plus, but the overall top six from each round will be guaranteed a pass through to the Super Final and get to mix it with the Pros at every round.
Each Pro and Pro Lites class will race two championship points-scoring qualifying races; Main Event 1 and 2, on each night of Arenacross. The top six overall scorers from each Main Event will transfer to the one combined Super Final and, to make it even more interesting, the top six Pro Lites qualifiers will get priority start-gate pick.
Adding to the tension and, prior to the climax of the evening, the four Pro and Pro Lites placed seventh to 10th in each class, will filter through to an eight-rider Head-to-Head eliminator. The winner will go through to the Super Final. All non-seeded riders will race in a ‘Last Chance Qualifier’ aka LCQ, in a bid to claim the all-important 14th start position in the Super Final Main Event.
The Rookie Class
The Arenacross Rookie Cup includes riders aged 14- 18 years old, this class is a vital stepping stone and provides a perfect platform from which the younger teenage riders can shine. Riders include Ben Clayton, brother of 2018 Pro Lite Champ Joe Clayton as well as German Superstar Carl Ostermann.
Team Green Supermini Cup
Arenacross and Team Green Kawasaki have joined forces to introduce the most incredible one-make race series on the MX planet. Just 12 Big Wheel 85cc riders (that’s riders between the ages of 11 and 15-years) will get the chance to simply turn up at each Arena, and race like factory supported superstars. But these riders will be on identical machines so it’s down to their riding and tactics!
The 65 Youth
12 of the meanest and most determined 7-to-10 year-olds onboard their 65cc machines, will race bar to bar over the same track as the pro’s! These guys are at the beginning of their Arenacross journey and ride with sheer grit and determination in front of a cheering 10,000 strong crowd.
