ATTENTION ; ALL JUNIOR & SENIOR SUPERMOTO RIDERS!!!
Australian Supermoto Championships is being held at Wannaroo, Perth November 18/19th.
We are seeking interest from those that would like to review attending.
We have been reviewing options of hiring a container and shipping the bikes over. Price of container will be dependent upon the number of bikes that are shipped, bring total price of container hire and transport is $8,900 including insurance cover of up to 150k.
Container will need 9 days transport each way.
Review container leaving RRAT 6th Nov this is a few days after RRAT Rnd 4. Container will then be delivered to Perth track on the 15th a few days ahead of the titles and allow access to bikes and equipment.
After titles container will be collected on the 20th and arrive back at RRAT on the 29th - this works for bikes to be back by the weekend for the RRAT TVL 200 - 2nd Dec. From current race calander the event that will be missed is FNQ Rnd 7 on 12th Nov.
With transportation of bikes and equipment arranged members can then fly direct to and from Perth. There is an option the arrange group transportation (mini-van) and accommodation to reduce costs.
This is a current request of interest from members - please respond with questions/concerns/interest and share with those that you think will enjoy this experience.
Once we start to review numbers we can confirm price - due to price and arrangement we will want to have majority of this finalized within the next few months.

So the new year is upon us. Dreams of glory abound, the guys down south have no idea how good you really are, but if you had the opportunity to show them then they would learn a thing or two…..
Well the opportunity is here….We are planning a NQ assault on Morgan Park for the first round of the Southern Downs Championship on 1st & 2nd of April (there is also a practice track day on Friday 31 March). We are in the early stages of planning but need an idea of numbers to get some specific prices as these vary greatly depending on the number of bikes and people.
Bikes and gear picked up at track around 8 am Thursday 30 Mar. will be transported to Morgan Park and be available for the track day practice on 31 Mar if you wish. Bikes will be loaded at Morgan Park after racing on Sunday 2 Apr and return to Townsville and will be at the track at around 3 pm Monday 3 Apr. Cost will vary on the number of bikes but work on around $80 per bike (not rider) –maybe cheaper will be able to firm up once numbers are known.
People We have a lot of options here from finding your own way to chartering a coach and again will defiantly depend on numbers; this is open to everyone, not just riders. Depart from bohle track on Thursday 30 mar around 7 pm arrive track around 12 pm if you wish to participate in practice we can vary the departure time or if enough interest we can travel in 2 groups (practice/race or race only). Let us know if you wish to compete in practice day. Cost (transport only) expect around $140 per person.
Based on last year some other costs to consider: track day is $200, race entry approx. $300 + $30 for extra class. No sup regs are available yet but all class info can be found here http://www.motorcyclesportsmen.com.au/class-info.html .
Please register your interest via email@example.com stating: subject – road trip, your Name, number of passengers, number of bikes to transport, camping (y/n), practice y/n. best contact. ... See MoreSee Less
