NEWCASTLE INTERNATIONAL SUPERMOTO

The Father’s Day weekend event will feature non-stop and action-packed racing for both days. A host of talented names and the sport’s greatest champions are set to battle it out. The City of Newcastle is rich in motorcycle racing history and is surrounded by impressive scenery.

 In an interesting development, the winner of the Newcastle International Supermoto will be awarded a Wildcard Entry to the SuperBikers held in Mettet, Belgium in October. Boyd Events will provide the airfare, accommodation and bike hire to the winner.

 The 2018 FIM Oceania Newcastle International Supermoto featuring the Australian Supermoto Championship is an exciting format raced on both road and dirt. Not only will the race showcase Australia’s top domestic riders, but also a host of elite international champions as well. The event will be live streamed to the world, and broadcast nationally on SBS Speedweek, Fox Sports Australia, Fox Sports Asia, Motors TV in Europe and MAVTV to the USA, Canada and Mexico.

 Promoter Graeme Boyd sharing; “People are starting to now understand what an impressive event the Newcastle International Supermoto is. Last time we were at the foreshore in 2016 we had a huge crowd of 20,000 on the Saturday and 30,000 on the Sunday. It’s just such a special event. We also get a huge following from Indonesia, the Philippines and Japan. As always, there’s a huge interest in the United States. We cannot wait for it all to kick off in September!”

 Lord Mayor of Newcastle Nuatali Nelmes also shared his enthusiasm; “Supermoto is a real crowd pleaser and it is great to see the event returning to the heart of the city. The event precinct is in an enviable position with a magnificent working harbour on one side and spectacular surfing and swimming beaches on the other. We love hosting major events that bring international competitors and supporters to our great city.”

 FIM Oceania President Glen Williams saying; “Supermoto is a spectacular sport – and this FIM Oceania event brings competitors from all over the world vying for the FIM Oceania trophy and winners bragging rights. Many thanks to the organisers, Motorcycling Australia and Newcastle City that are pulling together to support this event.”
