The gate dropped on the new era of the Maxxis MX3 class at Wonthaggi for the opening round of the Penrite ProMX Championship presented by AMX Superstores. With an extremely challenging race track and fluctuating weather, the young riders in Maxxis MX3 had their work cut out for them to excel in tough conditions.

In the opening Maxxis MX3 moto Blake Fox would take a commanding lead early on the GAS GAS Australia MC 250F and win convincingly over Ryder Kingsford who would charge through from a bad start to second place on the GYTR Yamaha Junior Racing Team. Ben Novak would finish third on the Factory Honda Racing Team CRF250r.

Moto two would see Kingsford holeshot and battle with Blake Fox early in the moto, as the pair traded the race lead several times. Kingsford would pull away from Fox in the middle part of the moto and maintain the advantage to take the moto win, ahead of Blake Fox in second, Kayden Minear in third, Kobe Drew in fourth and Ben Novak in fifth. 

Due to his win in the second moto, Ryder Kingsford would take the overall victory for round one in Maxxis MX3, from Blake Fox in second overall and Kobe Drew in third overall on the GYTR Yamaha.
