The Australian Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) has today confirmed the decision last week that new provider arrangements for motorcycle ride days at Sydney Motorsport Park (SMSP) will be in place from the 1st September, 2015.
ARDC’s Chief Executive Officer, Glenn Matthews, took the opportunity to thank Motorcycling Events Group Australia (MEGA) Managing Director, Steve Brouggy for over ten years of operations at SMSP.
“We would like to recognise Steve and the MEGA team for their strong contribution in helping to re-shape motorcycle ride days to become the great product it is today. Their hard work and professionalism over the last decade is to be highly commended. We have really enjoyed a very strong and positive relationship with Steve over many years, and are delighted we will be able to maintain our association with MEGA as it continues to run its California Superbike Schools here at the SMSP circuit,” said Matthews.
The announcement is the result of a recent, four-month comprehensive review of motorcycle ride day, training, events and experiences by the ARDC at SMSP.
MEGA’s Steve Brouggy said, “through the ARDC and the ever-improving Sydney Motorsport Park we have been able to enjoy a long and successful ride day operation in Sydney, complementing similar operations at Phillip Island in Melbourne.
Whilst disappointed not to be further involved in the Sydney-based ride days, we have strong plans to build upon our current California Superbike School at SMSP, and work with the ARDC in whatever way we can to deliver enhanced experiences and opportunities for riders of all ages and skill levels in Sydney”.
The current provider, MEGA will cease managing the popular ride days from the 31st August, with a new provider (to be announced shortly) assuming exclusive control of ride day bookings as from September. Booking for ride days at Sydney Motorsport Park operated by MEGA between now and 31st August can still be made by visiting www.smsprd.com.au or by calling 1300 793 423.
