Author: Media/Thursday, January 07, 2016/Categories: State News

Motorcycling Australia (MA) is pleased to announce the following MA affiliated clubs that will act as the Australian Superbike Championships (ASBK) Host Clubs for the ASBK in 2016:
 
•          St. George Motorcycle Club
•          Hartwell Motorcycle Club
•          Motorcycle Racing Club of WA
•          Motorcycle Sportsmen of Queensland
 
Hartwell Motorcycle Club, Motorcycle Racing Club of WA and Motorcycle Sportsmen of Queensland all ran rounds of the championship in 2015, while St. George Motorcycle Club will be newly added to the list of Host Clubs in 2016.
 
Speaking about the announcement, President of Motorcycle Sportsmen of Queensland Paul Dawson said it was great for the club to again be involved with the ASBK series.
 
“We are very much looking forward to bringing the ASBK back to Morgan Park after a successfully run event in 2015, and will certainly be trying to make it bigger and better for everyone,” he said.
 
“There was a lot of positive feedback after the event and we are going to bring the Superbike experience back to Warwick where we had such great support from the local community, the track and from our riders, competitors and the volunteers as well.
 
“Being the final event it should be a big drawcard, and we can’t wait to host it!”
 
After great success last year the Club Challenge races return to each standalone round in 2016.
 
This important development opportunity provides the chance for club level competitors to compete at the pinnacle of Australian road racing in front of big crowds.  
 
At rounds 2 – 6 each of the Host Clubs gets the chance to select a local category that is popular at their club and state championships to compete at the ASBK round in their area.
 
The 2016 Australian Superbike Championship will be held over six rounds this year, and you can head to www.asbk.com.au for more information.
