Andrew Barr is throwing a bone to Canberra’s motorsport enthusiasts with the announcement that a leg of the first ever Australasian Supercross Championships will be held at Canberra Stadium on Saturday 7 November.
- The Australasian Supercross Championships will not only provide great entertainment for locals but will help boost our local tourism industry by providing another great reason for interstate visitors to come to Canberra.
We’re expecting a big crowd so I’d urge Canberrans to get their tickets early and make sure they invite their friends and family from interstate to Canberra for the weekend to enjoy the spectacle of another first-class sporting event at Canberra Stadium.
The event’s promoter will bring 5,000 cubic metres of dirt into Canberra Stadium to create the race track. This dirt will be laid on a fabric and plywood underlay to protect the playing surface.
And yes, they’ve got Chad Reed booked.
