‘Back to the Foreshore’ is the theme for the 2018 FIM Oceania Newcastle International Supermoto, with the event returning to the harbourside location this year.
With free public entry and being run over the Father’s Day weekend, the FIM Oceania Newcastle International Supermoto is going to be very well attended.
The track is being purpose-built and is designed to keep most riders spending the same amount of time each lap on tar and dirt. The jumps won’t be super-aggressive as the track is being designed to flow.
