AFTN Promoter, Dave Maddock: “I’m really excited to finally see the AFTN come to life. It’s been in the works for quite some time, but with impact of the pandemic on events, it made sense to hold off. A window opened up in the calendar to finally launch and we jumped at it. I can’t thank the club, the brands and companies that are supporting the series enough, in particular, Rider Support Australia, Motul, Bunda Fine Jewellery, MXstore, KTM, TCX Boots, Husqvarna, AMA Warehouse, Gas Gas, Unifiler and Ducati Scrambler who all jumped on board instantly, and without hesitation. I wish I could list everyone that has put their hand up to help to be honest because the response from the industry has been nothing short of incredible, and I can’t wait to showcase that support over the weekend and in the content we produce after the racing is over“.

Leading brands, manufacturers and distributors have joined forces behind the initiative to breathe life into the AFTN, and reward our most talented flat track racers.

The top five place getters of the Pro 450 class will share in $11,500 in cash & prizes, with the overall inaugural AFTN Pro 450 champion in 2022, the rider with the highest points tally after ten races over two days will take home $8000 in cash and prizes. The top three place getters in every single AFTN class will share a total prize pool value of between $1550 and $950 per class in cash and prizes, from Pro Twins to Junior 85’s.

It doesn’t end there either with confirmation that spectators who attend either Saturday and/or Sunday also will be in the running for cash and prizes with door prizes being awarded through the day alongside raffle prizes, also on offer over both days.
