Newcastle foreshore to host 2016 FIM-ASIA SuperMoto season opener
Newcastle‰Ûªs iconic Foreshore Park will transform to host the opening round of the 2016 FIM-ASIA SuperMoto Championship on September 3 & 4, attracting some of the world‰Ûªs best Supermoto riders to Newcastle across the weekend.

The event will mark the first time Australia has hosted a round of the international series, which is contested in countries including Indonesia, the Philippines, and Malaysia.

The iconic NSW regional centre was awarded the right to host the international event following the successful running of the Watson Demolition and Earthworks Australian SuperMoto Championship at the foreshore in 2015.

Spectator entry is free and the foreshore location will provide an incredible backdrop for the world-class racing on the purpose built internationally recognised 940m tar/dirt combination track. In addition to the full program of racing, the event will deliver entertainment options for the whole family.

NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events and Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said the Australian round of the FIM Asia Supermoto Championship has been secured for Newcastle for the next three years, through the NSW Government‰Ûªs tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.

‰ÛÏThis exciting sporting event is expected to attract more than 3,330 overnight visitors with a total visitor spend of $1.9 million over the three year period, and we look forward to showcasing Newcastle to a global audience during this fantastic Australian-first event,‰Û
