Further information regarding the 2014 Australian Supercross Championship (ASX) has been uncovered, with promoter International Entertainment Group (IEG) in the process of updating the official series website.

As reported on earlier this month, ASX will be contested over three weekends, featuring a trio of double-header events at Bathurst, Phillip Island and Brisbane.

The series will commence at Bathurst on 10-11 October during the weekend of the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercars event, however a venue is yet to be revealed.

Round two, as previously announced, will be held at Phillip Island alongside the Australian round of the MotoGP World Championship the week following on 18-19 October.

The third and final stop of the series has been scheduled for Brisbane on 8-9 November, which is anticipated to mark a return to indoor racing at Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Motorcycling Australia or IEG are yet to officially announce the final series structure for 2014, prompting Yamaha Motor Australia to withdraw all three of its factory teams in its current state. Stay tuned for further information when we have it.
