Motorcycling Australia (MA) has announced the classes for the 2015 Australian Superbike Championship.
2015 Australian Championship Classes will be:
In addition to the Australian Championship classes, there will also be an Unlimited national support class with largely open rules for competitors with all types of solo machines above a capacity of 500cc. Additional announcements around MA‰Ûªs support categories will be made in the coming weeks.
MA is committed to providing accessible options for competitors with the 250 and 300 Production Championships continuing in 2015, in addition to the Women‰Ûªs up to 300 Production Championship.
2015 sees the inclusion of the Club Challenge races, a format that allows each Host Club to select the most popular class amongst their members to contest at their respective ASBK Round.
The Club Challenge provides local riders a National Championship platform to race on in front of family, friends and factory teams.
MA President Braxton Laine is confident that the classes for 2015 will provide both stability and accessibility for a broad range of competitors.
"To provide a first class Australian Championship we need to focus on the core group of racing classes." Laine said. "For now, we're confident the five core classes we have confirmed will provide top class competition for riders and thrilling racing for spectators.
"The addition of the Club Challenge this year will give our Host Clubs riders another opportunity to race in a different class to the five we've confirmed."
Competitors are strongly encouraged to contact each Host Club for upcoming events and information on racing at their club and state championship events. This provides highly valuable track time on the circuits of the 2015 championship.
