Monster Energy Aus-X Open Melbourne

OVERVIEW

iEDM were engaged by AME Management to plan and oversee the install and delivery of this Supercross event at Marvel Stadium.

This is the first time this event has been held at the venue. With strict engineering requirements and a full Spring events calendar, there were many logistical challenges to overcome.

Turf health was the driving component when setting the project program. To avoid any damage to the playing surface, turf specialists advised that the turf should not be covered for more than 72 hours.

Strict loading conditions set by the stadium engineers informed the method in which the track infrastructure was designed, built and dismantled.

6 months of detailed planning and liaising with many stakeholders including event managers, turf specialists, engineers, traffic and venue management resulted in the successful execution of a detailed project program.

Key data involved in delivering this event:

  • 6000 tonnes of dirt
  • 857 truckloads delivered
  • 3000 plyboards to protect the turf
  • 1856 acro props and 5104 railway sleepers underneath stadium to support the suspended playing field
  • Dirt removed from stadium in 18 hours

Challenges overcome:

  • Track was designed, built and dismantled within the stadium’s engineering constraints
  • 6000 tonnes of dirt successfully moved into and out of the stadium with consideration for:
  • Restricted Access
  • Stadium Operations
  • External traffic logistics
  • Project complete within 72 hours

Related project results:

  • 34,791 Attendees over 1 day of racing
  • $22, 011, 522 Estimated Economic Growth in Melbourne due to the Monster X Open
  • Largest International Supercross event outside of the USA
