Saturday 02 September to Sunday 03 September 2017
Newcastle Showground will host the 2017 Newcastle International Supermoto, including the FIM Oceania Supermoto Championships.
Supermoto is racing that mixes road racing and motocross on a track that consists of road and dirt sections. A supermoto motorcycle starts with a motocross bike and is modified by using road bike wheels, tyres and brakes. The name of the game is light, nimble and responsive. Acceleration and hard braking make it exciting for the spectator to watch.
Riders come from various motorcycling disciplines each with different strengths. The result is racing that is technical, fast and often unpredictable. The Watson Demolition Newcastle City Supermoto event is unique as it incorporates Wharf Road as the tarmac segment and weaves into Foreshore Park for the purpose built dirt section.
As the FIM Oceania SuperMoto Championships, the event promises a host of the best riders from around the world.
