ASBK TO CROWN CHAMPIONS AT EPIC GRAND FINALE
The mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul, will crown five 2021 ASBK Champions at South Australia’s The Bend Motorsport Park in what will be an epic Grand Finale, December 3-5.The ASBK Grand Finale was made possible after the South Australian Government confirmed earlier this week it would open its state borders as of November 23, following the COVID-19 lockout, ensuring the 2021 ASBK Grand Finale can proceed and with fans trackside at The Bend Motorsport Park.
Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit was planned to hold the final round but is unable to due to current Victorian border restrictions. The ASBK Management Team would like to thank Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit for their understanding and significant support of ASBK and we look forward to returning to one of the World’s best racetracks in 2022.
After a two-year hiatus caused by the global pandemic, the ASBK Management Team are excited to return to The Bend and thank The Bend management for offering to make the 2021 ASBK Grand Finale possible on short notice.
The Bend is an international award winning circuit and in its short history, has quickly become a rider favourite which tests each and every riders skill and fitness across the 4.95km layout, which will determine who will be crowned the 2021 ASBK Champions.
With the Championship title up for grabs in all five classes of the mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul, race fans are set for a spectacular Grand Finale over three glorious days of scintillating bar to bar action.
’It’s been a difficult second half of the year with COVID-19 restrictions, but we are ecstatic the ASBK Grand Finale can proceed at the spectacular The Bend Motorsport Park,” said Motorcycling Australia CEO, Peter Doyle.
“The 2021 ASBK Champions will be crowned in all five classes and fans are in for a real treat as the five classes will produce some not to be missed action, so we strongly encourage race fans to get trackside at The Bend.
“Our sincere thanks go to The Bend Motorsport Park management and South Australian Government who have worked hard to ensure the 2021 ASBK Grand Finale can be held.”
The Bend Motorsport Park Managing Director, Sam Shahin said: “2021 has been an intensely challenging year for the motorsport community and we are really pleased we’ve been able to work through the challenges with Motorcycling Australia and the ASBK Management to host the final round of the 2021 ASBK Championship at The Bend Motorsport Park”.
