In 2014 the Australian Supercross Championship will run over five rounds, with NSW, Darwin, Victoria and Queensland playing host to Australia’s premier dirt bike series.
The championship, which will open In Darwin on September 20, will then return to NSW after a year’s hiatus. The Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix will host rounds thee and four with Queensland to host the final round on November 1.
The successful 2013 championship was well received by riders, sponsors and spectators alike, with one of the key highlights being the championship battles between Australian riders Matt Moss and Luke Styke and American racers Josh Hill and Gavin Faith.
After finishing runner-up in 2013, Gavin Faith has confirmed he will return to Australia for the 2014 series, however the class he will compete in is yet to be decided.
"I have had a great time these past three years and I really hope to be able to race in Australia for a long time coming,” Faith said.
“The people are great, the atmosphere at the events is like America and the food is good"
Faith returned to America only to get back on a plane and compete in final round of the German Supercross Championship which he finished a credible second in the 450 class.
IEG would like to thank the competitors, teams, sponsors, Northern Territory Major Events, Australian Gran Prix Corporation and Mt Gambier Council for their support in 2013.
Further details on the 2014 championship will be released shortly. Motorcycling Australia and IEG are working on reducing the costs for participants across the entire championship and finalising travel subsides and options for the opening round in Darwin.
