The foreshore of Newcastle will be transformed as the location for the Watson Demolition Newcastle City Supermoto, including the first round of the FIM Asia 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 Round One of the FIM-Asia SuperMoto Championships, the event promises a host of the best riders from around the world.
