“On the Fathers Day weekend, September 1-2, there will been tens of thousands of people here on the Newcastle Foreshore watching the 4th year of the Newcastle International SuperMoto, with hundreds of thousands more watching across Australia and around the world on our live-stream broadcast,” said Graeme Boyd, CEO of the Newcastle International SuperMoto.

Champion riders from China, New Zealand, France, Indonesia, the Philippines, Japan, USA, Germany, the UK, Singapore, Malaysia and of course Australia will be racing at the Newcastle International SuperMoto.

Riders from across the motorcycle racing spectrum will be competing to be considered the Best of the Best – World Champions like Troy Bayliss, Jason Crump, Shayne King, FIM Asia SuperMoto Champion Lewis Cornish, four time USA SuperMoto champion Gage McAllister and current FIM Oceania champion Adam Miller.

The 2018 event will see both the Australian SuperMoto Championship run on the Saturday and the FIM Oceania SuperMoto Championship on the Sunday, with big crowds expected both days.

“It’s a really exciting event, right in the heart of the City of Newcastle,” said Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes.

The Newcastle International SuperMoto is a father-focused family and community event full of action, thrills and spills which will also showcase Newcastle to the world.

“We are Pleased to be the Originator of Motorsport on the Newcastle Foreshore,” Boyd continued, referring to the SuperMoto Events run since 2015.

“Right from the start Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes believed in the SuperMoto.  She knew from events like all the Free Motorcycle parking in the city and popularity of the Bikers For Kids Christmas Toy Run that this is a Motorcycle City (actually about 30% above the national average of motorcycle ownership.)”

“We’re really pushing hard to reach out as we’re [Newcastle] identifying as an emerging global city and to do that we need to be hosting events that have a global audience like Supermoto”, Nemes said at the launch of the event.

“We are a Free event because of the generosity of the New South Wales Government through Destination NSW and the people of Newcastle City and its Council.

The reach of the Newcastle International SuperMoto goes way beyond the 50,000 spectators expected at the event with live-stream and post-event TV coverage reaching a potential audience of over 1 billion people. Previous Newcastle SuperMoto have been viewed by over 20 million people across Australia, Asia, Europe, the USA and South America.

Grandstand upgrade tickets will be available for sale from June 14 through Moshtix.
