It has been determined by the Commission and Rules & Tech committee that Australian Championship status for Moto3 and 125cc classes will be removed. The Moto3 class will now merge with the Senior Competition 250cc GP Mono class to give all 250cc 4 Stroke bikes a place to continue competing. All classes will still be eligible for state and club championships if applicable.
 
Rationale:
The rationale for this decision is due to the decreasing numbers in entries of the Moto3 class, and that the growth of the class has been too slow for it to be considered viable as a championship class.
 
The 125cc class has been removed from championship status due to it no longer reflecting a current international class, and that 125cc GP machines are no longer being produced or replaced with new models for competition use.
 
Rule change effective from:
1st January 2018
