After an awesome start to the year in Port Macquarie, Round 2 of the Australian MotoStars Series featuring the Australian Junior Road Racing Championships and the Oceania Junior Cup will head south to the Broadford State Motorcycle Complex in Victoria on the 6th/7th of April!
MotoStars has put another action packed schedule together for the event, ensuring some great racing over the 2 days.
So, what’s new?
The schedule will remain the same as Round 1 with practice, qualifying and racing conducted on Saturday, followed by a warm up and racing all day on Sunday. Due to the busy timetable practice is limited at the event so MotoStars has added its popular Race School on Friday 5th of April, which can be booked separately.
On the road racing front, the AJRC will feature the 160cc 4 stroke class (11-15 years on 17″ road bikes) and the 2 stroke class (11-15 years) which will be hotly contested.
The MotoStars Junior Class (9-12 years) was the biggest class at MotoStars last year and many of the young guns from this series have moved on to bigger and better things in Asia Talent Cup, including Benny Baker, Senna Agius, Jacob Roulstone and Harrison Voight. See the next generation battle it out for top honours this year including Carter Thompson, Cameron Swain, the Russo brothers and more!
Finally, the MotoStars Senior Class (13 years and over) has been modified to allow any road race machine up to 400cc. It will likely feature R3’s, Ninja 300’s and 400’s, Moriwaki 80’s, 250 proddies, and more so get that bike out of the shed and come and have a go!
Additionally, the Broadford round will feature a new class called “MotoStars Masters” which is open to Senior riders on large capacity road race machines including Supersports and Superbikes.**
While the Australian Supermoto Championships won’t feature at this round, the SuperMotoStars class, for Senior riders on all types of Supermoto machines, will still be open to race.
MotoStars Director, Damian Cudlin, insists that entries need to be in before the closing date on 22nd of March.
“We are excited to bring the series to Broadford and give the juniors a taste of a bigger circuit. We’ve added the Masters class for bigger bikes too, and the Oceania Junior Cup will be exciting to watch too. We have classes to suit everyone’s level of experience so there’s never been a better time to come and have a race.” Cudlin said.
