Motorcycling Australia headed to Queensland to present the second round of the Yamaha Motor Finance ASBK on April 11 – 12.
The ASBK was hosted by the Motorcycle Sportsmen of Queensland at Morgan Park raceway. It was the first time the ASBK headed to Morgan Park, and MA President Braxton Laine says it was a success.
“The collaboration between MA and Motorcycle Sportsmen for the ASBK achieved an ideal combination providing both the colour and professionalism of a national championship meeting together with all the atmosphere and community of a club event," says Laine.
“The aim for this championship is to bring the motorcycle racing community, the local community and the industry together for an event
rather than just a race meeting. Judging by the record spectator numbers at the event, I think we achieved that.
“Thanks must go to the Motorcycle Sportsmen of Queensland for their dedication to the event and for providing the hard working officials without whom the event could not have happened.
“A key objective of MA as an organisation promote and advance motorcycling through competition and commercial means, and investment in the these events is one of the ways MA is doing this.”
The next event for the Yamaha Motor Finance ASBK will be Round 3 which will see the all classes for the Championship return to Barbagallo Raceway WA, May 22-2.
