Dates for 2010 Honda Grom's and Girls on the Gas Released

The 2010 running of the Honda Girls on the Gas and Honda Grom's on the Gas Competitions are set and ready to get under way with the series kicking off in Queensland on July 3rd and 4th.

With the Grom's Competition in its third year and the Girls in their sixth year running, the Honda backed competitions have stamped their mark in the Australian National Calendar.

Fiona Collins, Spokesperson and Organiser of the 2010 Women's MX National Championship had this to say of the Honda Girls on the Gas. "I think it's great what the Girls on the Gas has done for women's racing over the past 5 years," said Fiona. "Not only from a riding perspective but it seems to have lifted the professionalism and profile of women's racing in our country."

The 7 round combined series travels around Australia crowning winners in each state before culminating in the big 'Final Showdown' late in the year where all 7 winners of the Honda Grom's on the Gas and Honda Girls on the Gas will go head to head to see who will be crowned winner for the year.
