2018 Australian ATV Nationals at Collie

In just under 3 weeks Australia’s fastest ATV racers will Descend upon the Collie Motorcycle Club at Stockton Park to compete in another epic battle to see who will be crowned the 2018 ATV National Champion in their respective class.

On October 5th-7th Quad Riders Western Australia (QRWA) along with Collie Motorcycle Club will host the 2018 Australian ATV Nationals. The annual event this year will see a number of riders travel outside their comfort zone and State to compete in classes ranging from 50cc demo  -250cc in the junior classes and Clubman through to Pros, Vets 35+ and Womens in Seniors. The event will cater for all skill levels and most cc capacity of sport/race quads. 

This year the 1.6km sand track of Stockton Park will see reigning Open class champion Luke Gaisford take on long time rival and former Australian Champion Chris Bosnakis, while the list of talent doesnt stop there, The VanVliet brothers will be set to try and make amends for the heart ache that plagued them in Murray Bridge in 2017. Not to mention the recently returned from the U.S Cody Lincon and then the locals who have been mixing it up in the WA state series, Mortimer, Croonen, Ovens etc. the pro class racing will not dissapoint.

Current Womens ATV champion Jemma Merrylees will be looking to hold onto her title as the fastest women on four wheels, with rumours rife about the return of some very fast ladies this year, Merrylees will be looking shut the competition down and stand on top of that podium yet again.

The 250cc class will be one to watch, with what is set to be one of the biggest 250 classes seen on WA soil since 2007 it could be anyones show once the gate drops. With Jae Dowsett looking to shake his Nationals Hoodoo this year and finally stand on the top step, the likes of Burton, Mcquade, Lough, Hollins all have other ideas. This will be some fast paced action packed racing.
