The Bend would like to regretfully share the following media release on behalf of our event partners at Motorcycling Australia. We turn our attention to planning the 2021 International MotoFest where we look forward to the return of the Asia Road Racing and Australian Superbike Championships (dates TBC).
ASBK At The Bend Cancelled Due To Continued Delays In State Borders Reopening
ASBK Management Team is disappointed to advise the cancellation of the ASBK Round 2 at The Bend Motorsport Park, South Australia, originally planned for November 20-22.
The cancellation comes as a result of continuing delays to the reopening of State borders and State Government restrictions, despite falling virus numbers.
The need to make this decision is very frustrating for both ASBK Management and ASBK riders and teams as only a few weeks ago there were signs that this round might be able to occur. However, circumstances beyond our control will not allow for this event to take place.
ASBK takes this opportunity to thank The Bend Motorsport Park for their support and flexibility during this complicated and interrupted 2020 season. ASBK is very disappointed not to be visiting this outstanding venue this year, and we look forward to being back in 2021 for the International Motofest at The Bend.
Throughout 2020, ASBK Management Team have remained committed to communicating openly and regularly with the ASBK paddock during this unprecedented time. Whilst difficult decisions have been reviewed and made throughout this recent period, we thank teams, riders, partners, and fans for their understanding.
Keep up to date with further announcements on the mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul via www.asbk.com.au and following ASBK on Facebook and Instagram.
