The 2017 Make Smoking History Australian Supermoto Championships are fast approaching, taking place at the Wanneroo International Kartway at Neerabup Western Australia, over the weekend of November 18th & 19th 2017. Proudly presented by SupermotoWA, the Championship will feature several of the best Supermoto riders hailing from all over the nation.
Marking the first time SupermotoWA has hosted this event since 2010, the club will be welcoming talented racers from all over Australia. With SupermotoWA recently taking out Motorcycling Western Australia’s club of the year award, the event is in great hands. Entries have been very strong for this year, including 109 entries and 82 Supermoto riders, including 11 women.
Supermoto is one of the most exciting disciplines on two wheels. It’s held on a mixture of a tarmac kart track and a dirt section including table tops and berms. Riders use either Supermoto specific bikes or modified motocross or enduro machines with 17” wheels, slick tyres and more powerful front brakes. The racing is fast and furious with plenty of overtaking due to the mixed surfaces. Riders from a wide array of disciplines excel at different parts of the circuit. Road racers pass the dirt riders on the tarmac and motocrossers fly past on the jumps.
The 2017 Make Smoking History Australian Supermoto Championships will feature classes such as Pro, Open, Clubman, Vets and Women’s. In conjunction with these classes the event will be supported by racers on the smaller mini-motards and mini GP bikes and there is even a Postie bike class where the racing is close and fun on these machines with minimal modifications. The Juniors will be out on the track as well, providing a glimpse of the future of the sport.
In terms of schedule, practice and qualifying on Saturday morning and racing Saturday afternoon and all-day Sunday. Spectators can pop in and see all the action anytime over the weekend. There are exhibitor stands, a canteen will be open if you want a bite to eat and kids are welcome – there will be a bouncy castle and face-painting on the Sunday. Make sure to bring the whole family!
The event will be MC’d and commentated by J-Mac (Jarrod Maclean), who will be providing all the information about what’s going on both on and off track. There will also be prize giveaways throughout the event!
