Superbike World Championship
Superbike racing is all about showcasing the latest generation of high-performance four-stroke street bikes, with seven manufacturers set to battle it out for the 2014 world championship – Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati, BMW and Aprilia.
February 21-23’s world superbike championship is turning into the ultimate three-day Phillip Island motorcycle extravaganza, with confirmation that spectacular ArenaCross dirt bike action joins the agenda, as a freebie for all fans.
The off-road flavour comes courtesy of Kevin Williams, from Williams Event Management (WEM), who will stage the Victorian ArenaCross Championship at a purpose built track behind the circuit’s iconic hilltop crest, Lukey Heights.
Any ticket holder to Phillip Island’s season opening world superbike round next February 21-23 will get free access to the two day dirt bike spectacular. It’s the deal of the decade, with a three day pass, purchased in advance, just $99* – delivering three days of on track action including two world championships, national classes, juniors and historic races and now ArenaCross.
The addition of ArenaCross – basically a downsized version of supercross — to the program will see juniors (7-16yrs) compete on Saturday before the seniors (over 16yrs) take over on Sunday. All classes will be catered for, including veterans and racing will continue throughout the day.
The popularity of ArenaCross has grown enormously in the last few years, and it is traditionally held on smaller, more intimate venues than supercross. Expect to see the man-made Phillip Island track throw up a testing mix of whoops, jumps and turns in a small area, where spectators won’t miss a second of the action.
For all event information and tickets see the official website.
