Gillman Speedway will play host to a 2-day sidecar extravaganza with riders from Australia, England, New Zealand and America all battling it out over the weekend, with Saturday night being the FIM Oceania Championship and Sunday night being the FIM 1000cc Speedway Sidecar World Cup.
“We are really proud to host the 2018 FIM 1000cc Speedway World Cup for the third consecutive year and as a club we are really looking forward to it, as we are anticipating a great crowd at both the FIM 1000cc Speedway World Cup and the FIM Oceania Speedway Sidecar Championship,” Said Speedway Riders Association of South Australia club president Ivan Golding.
Former multiple FIM 1000cc Speedway Sidecar World Cup winner Darrin Treloar is excited to see Gillman host the world cup for a third consecutive year, and in 2018 he is expecting a hotly contested field as the internationals keep improving.
“The 2018 FIM 1000cc Speedway Sidecar World Cup will be an exciting spectacle for the fans as we have some serious talent out on the track, and the England and New Zealand riders spend so much time riding on Australian tracks that they have bridged the gap and will be pushing for podium positions.”
Australian Warren Monson will be returning as the defending champion for both the FIM Speedway Sidecar Oceania Championship and FIM 1000cc Speedway Sidecar World Cup.
“I’m excited to get back to Gillman Speedway Stadium and next year the competition will be better than ever so ill have to be at my best to replicate my 2017 results.”
