Count Down to 2017 Australian Supercross Championship Grand Final


Posted: Tuesday, 14th November, 2017 : 2:57 PM - - 2,435 Reads




After five rounds in four states of high-flying dirt bike action featuring the best racers from Australia and the USA, the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship is all set to play out its grand final this Saturday night, November 18, at Jimboomba X-Stadium in the City of Logan Council region of south-east Queensland.

With both premier SX1 (450cc) and SX2 (250cc) championships to be decided at the event, Jimboomba X-Stadium is set to be packed with race fans eager to witness another spectacular night of dirt bike competition at the popular venue, which played host to the opening round of the series in September.

“Jimboomba X-Stadium is set to explode this Saturday night as the Australian Supercross Championship grand final is going to be huge!” enthuses event organiser Scott Bannan.

“Every championship round this year has been phenomenal and after the massive success of rounds four and five last weekend at the AUS-X Open event in Sydney, the grand final round at Jimboomba X-Stadium promises to be a night to remember.”

Bannan is set to revamp the Jimboomba X-Stadium track design for the grand final, with a new lay-out featuring both north-south and east-west track lanes, giving fans on all sides of the venue a feast of viewing options. The popular elevated start line continues, as does the testing sand pit section.

“All the stops are coming out,” Bannan continues, “as this weekend is set to be our biggest event ever at Jimboomba X-Stadium.”

In the SX1 class, defending champion Justin Brayton (Penrite Honda Racing) enjoys an 18 point advantage in the series standings after snaring a third place finish behind countrymen Jason Anderson (Rockstar Husqvarna) and Dean Wilson (Rockstar Husqvarna) at Sunday’s round five in Sydney, which came after Brayton’s aspirations were thwarted the night before by a first turn pile-up in the Final at round four.

“The first night at Sydney last weekend was tough to accept,” Brayton explained, “as I felt confident and had good speed, but the first turn crash in the Final on Saturday night left the bike a little twisted and I rode as well as I could to finish eighth and salvage some points.

“Thankfully the second night in Sydney went a lot better,” Brayton continues, “and I raced with the championship in mind and finished third and opened my points lead.”

Brayton, who swept all three opening rounds of the championship in dominant fashion through September and October, leads Australian stars, Logan local Dan Reardon (Mega Fuels Monster Energy Kawasaki) and Dean Ferris (CDR Yamaha), who are split by just two points as they continue their contest for top-Aussie status.


Defending SX2 Champion Jackson Richardson has a slender 5 point lead going into the final round.
 
In the SX2 category, defending champion Jackson Richardson (Serco Yamaha) now makes the front running after last weekend’s double-header in Sydney, which saw Wilson Todd (DPH Motorsport Yamaha) and new American invader Chris Blose (Penrite Honda Racing) split the round wins in two nights of knock-down, drag-’em-out indoor supercross competition.

Just five points seperate Richardson and Todd in the SX2 championship standings, with the battle set to go all the way to the wire.

“It's awesome to get the points lead after the Sydney weekend but with only five points in it, there is no time for rest,” number one plate holder Richardson admits.

“We have plenty of work to do during this week, so I will get a day off and then get stuck into a big week to be 100 per cent ready for the final round at Jimboomba on Saturday.”

While Richardson and Todd will be immersed in their own battle, American rider Blose is set to be the spoiler in the SX2 pack, as he is staying in Australia to race at Jimboomba, filling in on the Penrite Honda squad for injured fellow American, Gavin Faith, who is a former multiple Australian champion.

Also joining the big-name stars on-track at Jimboomba will be Junior riders in the SX Junior Lites and SX Junior 85 classes, which this year have been granted Championship status by Motorcycling Australia to foster the next generation of Supercross champions.

Advance purchase tickets to the Jimboomba X Stadium grand final round of the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship – which will feature an afternoon Pit Party where fans can meet their favourite riders – are on-sale via the www.ticketbooth.com.au web site. General admission, Stadium seating and discounted Family Pass tickets are available.
