Round two of the 2024 Fox Australian Supercross Championship (AUSX) will see the series head back to Wollongong’s Win Stadium for the first time in five years on Saturday, November 2nd.

Wollongong has been on and off the schedule over more than a decade, most recently appearing in 2019, and continues the trend of the series taking place within National Rugby League (NRL) team venues.

“We’ve always had strong support in New South Wales, notably with 40,000 fans attending our last two events in Newcastle,” said AUSX championship director Kelly Bailey. “We anticipate Wollongong also delivering a significant level of support given the large moto community within the Illawarra and surrounding regions, which should translate into a strong showing at the event, and even bigger atmosphere.

“Win stadium is perfect for supercross, with three grandstands and the eastern hill with grass seating, it provides ample viewing options of the show and track. Equally location wise, being close to public transport, and walking distance to the beach as well as hotels, shops, restaurants in the CBD ensures travelling fans can make a truly memorable weekend of it.”

AUSX’s New South Wales round was previously hosted at Newcastle’s McDonald Jones Stadium during the 2022 and 2023 seasons, with the Triple Crown event instead being relocated down the coast to Wollongong. Championship points will be on offer for each of the three main events.

With the series scheduled to commence at Redcliffe’s Kayo Stadium in its return to Queensland on Saturday, October 12th, Wollongong becomes the second round confirmed for 2024. It’s expected that Melbourne and Adelaide – at new, yet to be confirmed locations – will also be added to the calendar.
