Motocross fans can get their thrills at the Australian Supercross Championship in November, with round two of the 2024 series to take place at WIN Stadium.

It’s the first time the Illawarra has hosted a leg of the competition in five years.

By Saturday, 2 November, WIN stadium will be transformed into a dirt wonderland where the best domestic and international supercross stars will do battle.

Championship director Kelly Bailey said the event would be held in partnership with Destination NSW, Venues NSW, and Wollongong City Council.

“We’ve always had strong support in NSW, notably with 40,000 fans attending our past two events in Newcastle,” said Bailey.

“We anticipate Wollongong will deliver a significant level of support given the large moto community within the Illawarra and surrounding regions, which should translate into a strong showing and even bigger atmosphere.

“WIN stadium is perfect for supercross, with three grandstands and the eastern hill with grass seating, it provides ample viewing options of the show and track.”

Destination Wollongong’s general manager Mark Sleigh is excited to welcome the championship back to Wollongong, and encouraged fans across the state to make the most of Wollongong’s beautiful beaches, public transport and vibrant hospitality scene.

“Wollongong is thrilled to welcome back the Australian Supercross Championship, a significant event in the motor-sports calendar,” he said.

“If you’re travelling to watch the nation’s best riders, and some international superstars, battle it out in our iconic WIN Stadium by the sea, why not stay a little longer and enjoy our beautiful region?”

The NSW-based round will again run the Triple Crown format, with championship points on offer for each of the three main event races, as the format opens the door for unexpected outcomes, crashes or comebacks.

Tickets will be on sale SOON.
