Newcastle’s International Supermoto is set to go up a gear in 2017, with the event to incorporate the inaugural FIM Oceania Supermoto Championship.
The supermoto spectacle, to be held at the Newcastle Showground this 2-3 September, has already attracted a strong rider contingent from Australia and overseas, according to promoter, Graeme Boyd.
“We have secured athletes from a dozen nations, including New Zealand, USA, Japan, France, Malaysia and Thailand. Combine this with the talent available in Australia and the FIM Oceania Supermoto Championship will be a must-see motorcycle event.”
Boyd adds that the track will challenge riders and provide an exciting and entertaining spectacle for spectators, too, with access around the entire course perimeter, while big screen TV viewing will ensure none of the on-track action is missed.
As well as the international level battles, a full program of racing across both days will include local-level competition in Clubman and Veteran categories. There’ll be plenty of off-track entertainment as well, including the Flair Riders extreme trial show.
