Wollongong stop backed by Yamaha Motor Australia for 2019.
Troy Bayliss Events has confirmed the third round of the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship will be held at Wollongong’s WIN Stadium on Saturday, 9 November.
New South Wales’ supercross fans will experience a large outdoor stadium, giving fans the opportunity to see Australia’s best racers take on some international riders on a full-size track racing the exciting Triple Crown format in both SX1 and SX2 categories.
Three-time Superbike world champion and event organiser Troy Bayliss said the stadium layout will be unique with a section of the track heading up onto the iconic hill.
“In 2018, Troy Bayliss Events took the big step to put supercross back into a stadium in Australia with Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium round, now Troy Bayliss Events is thrilled to be taking the NSW event back to an outdoor stadium,” Bayliss commented.
“WIN Stadium is the perfect size with the crowd so close to the action and the location is second to none. I am really excited about the track layout. This event will be like no other with the track winding up onto the iconic hill.
“We would like to thank Destination Wollongong, Wollongong City Council, WIN Stadium and Yamaha for the support to allow Supercross to take place In Wollongong and within WIN Stadium. The Illawarra is rich with motorcycle champions and fans and we can’t wait until the gates drop on November 9.”
Yamaha Motor Australia back the round as a major sponsor, with Wollongong’s WIN Stadium being the perfect venue to showcase the brand’s race teams as they battle for supremacy in the VictorYZone. In addition, this round will host the YZ65 Cup – the grassroots race series designed to give young guns their first taste of the big time by racing in front of their supercross heroes and up to 20,000 fans.
Troy Bayliss Events also confirmed today the Australian Motorcycle Festival will take place at Lang Park next door to WIN Stadium on the same weekend. Formally known as the Sydney Motorcycle Show, Australia’s largest motorcycle show is also set to expand with massive trade displays featuring motorcycles, scooters, ATV’s, SxS’s, trikes and jet skis as well as related products and services.
It was confirmed earlier this month that the prestigious Monster Energy AUS-X Open will transfer to Marvel Stadium in Melbourne for 2019, previously being hosted at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney Olympic Park.
Rounds one, two, and four of the Australian Supercross Championship are still to be announced. Tickets for round three will go on sale Monday 29 April via Ticketmaster, with tickets starting from $30.00.
