Aussie Supercross - Preview
Posted on October 11, 2018
Round 3 of the Australian Supercross Championship will launch into action this Saturday October 13 with a cast of local and international riders set to take to the dirt at GMHBA Stadium - home to the Geelong Cats AFL team.
In one of the largest fields to tackle a national round of the Supercross Championship, over 90 competitors, including junior riders, will be vying for the win in their respective classes and for competitors in the SX2 (250cc) class, it will be an even bigger battle with current Italian Supercross Championship leader Lorenzo Camporese announced to compete in Geelong.
Camporese is no stranger to racing, having competed in the Italian, French, German and world (AMA) Supercross Championships, however for the Italian, this will be his first time aboard a Yamaha as he contests the Geelong event with EMU Racing Australia.
“it feels good to be here, it's going to be an awesome show and I really just can't wait, ” said Camporese
Australia’s Jay Wilson currently leads the SX2 Championship and says the addition of the Italian will be a welcomed challenge as he looks to make it three wins, from three events this year, despite the presence of the international star.
"We've got a lot of international riders here, a few Americans and the racing has been close, " said Wilson
“We've got Lorenzo he's the Italian Supercross Champion, it's going to be good hopefully mix things up a bit but we'll keep doing the Aussie thing and hopefully take this thing out, ”
With over 10,000 tickets sold already, Round 3 of the Australian Supercross Championship will be Australia’s biggest outdoor Supercross stadium event in over nine years and SX1 Dan Reardon is pumped to put on a show for the fans.
“I'm Pretty excited to come back to this venue again, just to be in a place this big down this part of Melbourne is awesome so just super excited for the weekend, ” said Reardon.
"this weekend is really important for me to step my game up, I just need to perform better and I think this weekend will be the start,"
Visitors and riders on the night will experience the Triple Crown format for the first time in the 2018 Australian Supercross Championship, which is sure to produce incredible, close-racing, all night.
