Toowoomaba’s second round of the 2016 Australian Supercross Championship this Friday night is slated to deliver a world-class circuit as the series recommences following a four-week break.

Toowoomba Showgrounds will host tomorrow evenings event with SB Promotions – promoter of Jimboomba’s highly successful opening round – at the helm of operations.

SB Promotions director Scott Bannan explained to that due to the size of the venue, the track crew had very little limitations on what they could build, resulting in a circuit that has delighted the US imports following today’s press day obligations.

“The size is unbelievable, we’re almost unlimited in what we can do,” said Bannan. “At Jimboomba we were limited in what could do, especially with the elevated start. But here, the boys can pretty much do whatever they want.”

“With the TV broadcast, the track can’t be too much over one minute long, which is where it’s roughly at. The jumps and technicality of it will add to the time, and the American guys have loved it today, so that’s a good thing for us.”

Bannan has also introduced an Australian supercross Hall of Fame initiative, with two addtional past riders – Troy Carroll and Stephen Gall – being inducted tomorrow night prior to the main events commencing.

“We have Troy Carroll and Stephen Gall being inducted into the Australian Supercross Hall of Fame,” Bannan continued. “I wanted to make our own hall of fame for the supercross championship, I made it into the hall of fame in my sport, and it was really cool when people remembered you because you just expect to be forgotten.”

“Some of the guys in supercross just don’t get that recognition when they’re retired, you can’t forget where you come from – you’ve got to remember the old boys.”
