The highly contested Australian Supercross Championship will return to Port Adelaide’s Gillman Speedway on Saturday, October 19, following the overwhelming support the event received in 2018 from both fans and competitors
Promoters Troy Bayliss Events confirmed South Australia will host the biggest Supercross track of the year, with the event adopting a traditional race format in 2019 as Supercross continues to evolve as one of the most high-energy sports across the globe.
“It’s all about the racing!” said promoter Troy Bayliss.
“Gillman Speedway has a top quality dirt stockpile of 7000 tonnes onsite with access to more and we don’t have any bump in time restraints, which we think will deliver us one of the best tracks of the year,” Bayliss concluded.
Fans can expect a huge night of Supercross action, with America’s Justin Brayton already announced to compete in the entire season, along with more international athletes set to be announced for South Australia.
Local resident Brett Metcalfe will no-doubt be the crowd favourite as he returns to defend his 2018 South Australian win.
“In the first 3 rounds of the 2018 season, I finished second to my teammate Justin Brayton,” Metcalf added
“South Australia last year was a huge step forward for me, I wanted to win and it could not have been at a better time, the crowd definitely influenced my win and the track layout was incredible.”
“I’m looking forward to doing it all again in 2019 and hopefully go back-to-back in front of my home crowd down there at Gilllman Speedway on October 19.”
Coveted Australian Supercross track designer, Protraxxx has been contracted to design and deliver the track that will provide incredible racing for riders and fans alike.
A full list of support categories will fill the night’s program including SX1, SX2 and the junior Australian Supercross Championship classes.
Fans will also be able to meet and greet the riders before the event starts, with the pit party taking place between 4pm – 5pm and the gates dropping at 6pm for the main event.
