Supercross returns to Wollongong’s WIN Stadium with Troy Bayliss Events in 2019 | News
Troy Bayliss Events today confirmed the third round of the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship presented by Yamaha will be held at Wollongong’s iconic WIN Stadium on Saturday 9th November.
Supercross in NSW is set for a huge boost with a large outdoor stadium confirmed giving fans the opportunity to see Australia’s best racers take on some international riders on a full-size track racing the exciting Triple Crown Format in both SX1 and SX2 premiere classes.
Three-time Superbike World Champion and Event Organiser Troy Bayliss said the stadium layout will be unique with a section of the track heading up onto the iconic hill.
“In 2018, Troy Bayliss Events took the big step to put Supercross back into a stadium in Australia with Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium round, now Troy Bayliss Events is thrilled to be taking the NSW event back to an outdoor stadium,” said Bayliss.
“WIN Stadium is the perfect size with the crowd so close to the action and the location is second to none. I am really excited about the track layout,” Bayliss continued. “This event will be like no other with the track winding up onto the iconic hill.
“We would like to thank Destination Wollongong, Wollongong City Council, WIN Stadium and Yamaha for the support to allow Supercross to take place In Wollongong and within WIN Stadium. The Illawarra is rich with motorcycle champions and fans and we can’t wait until the gates drop on November 9.” Bayliss concluded.
Yamaha Motor Australia is excited to be a major sponsor to Round 3 of the 2019 Australian Supercross Championship. Wollongong’s WIN Stadium is the perfect venue to showcase our race teams as they battle for supremacy in the VictorYZone. In addition, this round will host another YZ65 Cup event – the grassroots race series designed to give young guns their first taste of the big time by racing in front of their Supercross heroes and up to 20,000 fans.
Troy Bayliss Events also confirmed today the Australian Motorcycle Festival will take place at Lang Park next door to WIN Stadium on the same weekend. Formally known as the Sydney Motorcycle Show, Australia’s largest Motorcycle Show is also set to expand with massive trade displays featuring motorcycles, scooters, ATV’s, SxS’s, trikes and jet skis as well as related products and services. Visitors to the event will have the opportunity to test a huge range of motorcycles and jet-skis.
Mark Sleigh, General Manager, Destination Wollongong said the city is excited to host the Australian Supercross Championship and Motorcycle Festival in November.
“Wollongong makes for the perfect road trip with stunning coastline taking in Sea Cliff Bridge as well as the winding escarpment which will put all your motorcycle skills to the test,” Sleigh said.
“The combination of the Championship and the Motorcycle Festival make for the perfect weekend away so we encourage everyone to stay a little longer and enjoy the attractions, natural assets and cafes and bars on offer in Wollongong.”
