Newcastle hosting FIM-ASIA Supermoto Opener

A star-studded field of local Australian racers will be taking on international legends of motorcycle racing at the Newcastle City Supermoto on the Newcastle Foreshore, 3-4 September.

With three-time Superbike World Champion Troy Bayliss dragging on the leathers for a ride against the likes of 2005 World Supermoto champion Boris Chambon, 10 times UK champ Chris Hodgson and Catalan champion Joan Lopez from Spain, the talent pool is deep which will guarantee incredible riding.

The course runs along closed public roads around the palm trees of the foreshore, before turning onto the dirt section of jumps, berms and fast corners.

It’s the first time Australia has hosted a round of the FIM-Asia championship and follows the successful running of the Watson Demolition and Earthworks Australian SuperMoto Championship at the foreshore in 2015.

And the price is right – it’s a free event. For spectators the amphitheatre of Foreshore Park means you can get a great view from the grassy hill, or you can buy a close-up seat on the grandstands.

Cycle Torque will have more information in the September issue, so make sure you grab a copy before the event or from the Cycle Torque Quikshade at the Newcastle City Supermoto.
