A Massive Ten Hours of Live TV for ASBK at The Bend | Events

The Motul Pirelli Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK)’s biggest ever TV-event is set to light up homes across the nation, with Round 3 of the ASBK to be broadcast live in a 10-hour television extravaganza on Fox Sports and Kayo Sports as part of International MotoFest 2019 (April 25-28) from The Bend Motorsport Park in South Australia. 

The event, which includes not only Round 3 of the ASBK but also Round 2 of the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship, provides a huge weekend of motorcycle racing action as the Asia-Pacific’s fastest road racers take to the track across two different championships and six different classes. The broadcast will be the ASBK’s biggest-ever television event, giving fans access to more live racing than ever before.

Motorcycling Australia (MA) CEO Peter Doyle promised an exciting spectacle for fans watching both in Australia and overseas. “International MotoFest at The Bend is sure to provide some fantastic action, so it’s great that we can bring this to a worldwide audience” he said.

The event has expanded this year to include two additional championships, which will feature under lights from 5pm on Friday and Saturday at the Stadium Circuit, north of The Bend’s main Motor Racing Circuit. The Australian Junior Road Racing Championship, and SuperMoto Championship Classes include Pro, Womens, and Juniors with riders as young as 9 years old – Australia’s next generation of motorcycle stars.

New ticket options have been made available in 2019, for fans wanting the complete motorcycle experience “Ride N View” allows patrons to ride through the gates on their motorcycle and around the service road to their favourite viewing position. With the Rydges Pit Lane Hotel fully booked, visitors wanting to enjoy a weekend of racing can stay at the BIG4 Holiday Park (open in January 2019) situated less than 1km from the main pit building.
