Troy Bayliss Classic Scheduled For January 18, 2014, In Australia

Troy Bayliss Events today confirmed the Troy Bayliss Classic presented by Insure My Ride & MOTO EXPO, will return to Taree Motorcycle Club on Saturday January 18, 2014.

While Troy Bayliss is being tight lipped about which riders will join him for the 2014 Troy Bayliss Classic, we can confirm that current Moto 2 competitor Anthony West and Isle of Man TT legend Cameron Donald will both return to Australia for the event.

Following the successful inaugural event, which saw a sell out crowd flock to the Old Bar club, organisers have begun building bigger viewing mounds to allow for an increased capacity.

The 2014 event will also see the number of special guest riders increase from 24 to 36.

β€œAfter the success of this years event we have already started working on our second Troy Bayliss Classic,” Bayliss said.

β€œIt is very exciting to be able to announce that Anthony West and Cameron Donald are confirmed for the 2014 event. We have had a lot of this years racers express interest in participating again and our inaugural winner Michael Kirkness has earned his way into the invited line up.”

For West, who has spent the past 14 years abroad racing Moto GP, Supersport World Championship, 250cc and 125cc, the event will see him race flat track on Australian soil for the first time in many years and once again line-up against fellow Queenslander Chris Vermeulen. Vermeulen and West raced dirt track together when they were juniors.

Cameron Donald is the 2008 Isle of Man TT Superbike and Supersport winner. The Victorian has enjoyed a successful international racing career including placing first in the Newcomer of the Isle of Man TT and Northwest 200 in 2005 and winning the 600cc race at the Macau Grand Prix in 2001 & 2003.

Tickets for the Troy Bayliss Classic are now on sale and limited to 6000 for the 2014 event.
