In 2018, Motorcycling NSW acted to reinvigorate the NSW state motocross titles, with the following critical points:
+ Provide racers of all ages with an incentive to continue racing.
+ Provide racers with an equal opportunity to compete across the state.
+ Allow riders to race as many other club and open race meetings and series as they like without any disadvantage.
+ Give a tangible reward to those that achieve in what is a tough sport.
+ Honor long held traditions.
+ Ensure that the NSW State Champion was a sought after title.
And so, the concept of the King of MX was developed, where-by racers only need to qualify for the final, rather than race an entire series.

At the end of the Final event, once all the State Titles have been decided, the top riders from MX1, MX2, Veterans, and C Grade, will be placed in one All Powers feature race. They will race for a huge $10,000 prize purse… winner takes all… no second prize. Even more importantly, they will be crowned the 2018 King Of MX, soon to be the most prestigious MX title in the country. They will also be immortalised in cartoon form by our artist and become the main poster character for the next year’s event.
Pretty much the same as the King Of MX… an all female, All Powers race for the top 40 senior ladies. Same prizemoney as the guys, only a different crown. This will be the biggest event female MX has ever seen in Australia.
There will be 3 Motos for each class at the final event, and the State Titles will be determined on a point score basis using the points system in the GCRs. Results at Qualifying events have no bearing on the State Title results, only results at the Final event will count.
There are 6 regional qualifiers spread out around NSW in the first half of 2018. To qualify for the final on the June long weekend, you will need to enter a qualifier and finish in the top 6 or 7 in your class on a point score basis for that event. Riders who qualify will be awarded a Golden Ticket to the final and can then place their entry for the Final.
No problem. You are welcome to enter another qualifier. You can keep trying until you score a Golden Ticket.
Riders can only qualify once. For example, if at a Qualifying event where the top 6 receive a Golden Ticket, a rider finishes in the top 6 but they have already qualified at a previous event, the Golden Ticket will go to the rider who came 7th. So only those riders who have not previously qualified in that class can receive a Golden Ticket.
No. There are no wild card entries available in 2019.
Without these very special companies, this event would not exist
