Crowd Braves Inclement Weather To Witness Incredible Racing At The Troy Bayliss Classic
Over 5000, race fans converged on Taree Motorcycle Club over the weekend for the 2016 Motul, Pirelli Troy Bayliss Classic presented by Garden Master and Shark Helmets.

The newly resurfaced oil-based track didn‰Ûªt disappoint, delivering some of the closest racing in the events four-year history, before the inclement weather set in, forcing the cancellation of the evening finals.

The All-Stars and Legends contested three rounds of racing throughout the day with Jared Mees, Sammy Halbert, Michael Kirkness, Troy Bayliss and Brad Baker all emerging victorious in the All-Stars class. In the Legends class, Jason Crump and Joonas Kylmakorpi renewed their rivalry, trading blows across the three races.

Event Organiser Troy Bayliss praised the Taree Motorcycle Club, officials and competitors for their commitment and flexibility, in working with the trying conditions to ensure premier racing for those who attended the event.

‰ÛÏIt was a great day considering the conditions,‰Û
