ASBK Returns to The Bend Motorsport Park in 2023 for the Grand Finale
In 2023, the mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul (ASBK) is returning to The Bend Motorsport Park for the final round of the season, in what is fast becoming not only a tradition but a must-see event.
The finale of season 2023 will be Round 7 of the ASBK Championship at The Bend Motorsport Park and will be held from the 1st to the 3rd December 2023. This date has been carefully selected to provide an opportunity for international riders to once again return to Australia to battle it out with the ASBK’s fastest riders.
In recent years, The Bend Motorsport Park round of ASBK has broken records for both spectator attendance and viewing numbers on social media, ASBK livestream, and live TV audiences; all of whom will be keen to catch the action from The Bend Motorsport Park.
The presence of Jack Miller in ’21 and ‘22 has played a massive role in increasing awareness of the ASBK Championship and its world class racing. In 2022, Jack returned alongside teammates Josh Hook, German racer Marcel Shrötter and Harrison Voight, with the event also drawing an ever-expanding line-up of strong internationally-based Australian racers like Joel Kelso, Harrison Voight, Senna Agius and Billy McConnell who returned for wildcard rides at ASBK’s Grand Finale.
Peter Doyle, CEO of Motorcycling Australia: “The Bend Motorsport Park event in 2023 is going to be a logical extension of the success the event has enjoyed over the last two years.
“We’ve seen this event blossom into a must-see, must-do event with large crowds and rider numbers. The challenging International Circuit layout lends itself to fantastic racing and the facilities are truly international standard.
“Wrapping up the season at The Bend Motorsport Park is the perfect way to complete what will surely be another great season of ASBK…”
The Bend Motorsport Park Managing Director, Sam Shahin: “Judging by the level of participation and attendance at this year’s ASBK round at The Bend, the future of motorcycle racing is very bright in Australia.
“Rarely have I seen a more enthusiastic and knowledgeable crowd. It also must be said that the quality of ASBK racing was just unbelievable; every category from Oceania Junior Cup all the way to Superbikes was phenomenal.
“We knew we’ve built a spectacular racetrack, but I must say, motorcycle racing at The Bend is epic.”
The Bend Motorsport Park will host the ASBK Grand Finale in 2023, and once again on the Sunday night after the final races have been run and won, The Bend will also host the ASBK Night of Champions to honour and applaud the ASBK Champions of season 2023.
