    The YMF Loan Australian Superbike Championship (ASC) through AUSCO the series promoter has teamed up with leading motorcycle manufacturers Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki and Kawasaki to bring fans of Australia's premier motorcycle racing series an exclusive bonus.

    Spiraling fuel costs have seen a resurging popularity in the two-wheel sales market and the manufacturers have chosen to reward race fans by providing them with this value-added bonus.

    Motorcycle racing fans can visit their local Japanese motorcycle dealer to receive free children’s admission vouchers valued at $10 each. The local round of the hotly-contested Australian Superbike Championship series will be hosted by Barbagallo Raceway, Sunday May 28th.

    Thanks to the manufacturers and local dealers, the most it will cost an adult with up to five children to enter the circuit and pit area is just $35.

    Promoter of the YMF Loan Australian Superbike Championship Terry O’Neill said the initiative was a great way to encourage all motorsport fans to come and experience the action up close.

    “The four major manufacturers have generously come together to give the local West Australian fans a great chance to experience Australia's premier motorcycle racing series first-hand, providing them with even more of a saving on top of the current low ticket prices,” said O’Neill.

    “There is nothing quite like the thrill of motorcycle racing, especially around the challenging Barbagallo circuit, and the YMF Loan Australian Superbike Championship brings three full days of on-track action across 8 varying categories.”

    “With over 180 competitors battling it out over 16 sessions of practice, qualifying or racing ever day, there is always an event to watch, as well as the fans’ exclusive chance to enter the pit lane area and meet the personalities behind the sport."

    “Along with the industry’s big four distributors I invite everyone to head down to their local dealer and ask about these great childrens’ giveaways.”

    Selected local primary and secondary schools will get the chance to meet with a number of the superstars from the headline categories as they make special appearances across the Wednesday and Thursday before the event begins.

    Riders will meet and greet with students, and take the time to talk about the discipline the sport requires, from dedication to training and fitness through to healthy eating and goal setting.

    Further to this, every student aged 6-15 will receive a free two-day pass to the event, which also includes free admission to the bustling hub of the race meeting, the pit precinct.

    This just announced great giveaway offer is aimed at looking after all those other youngsters in W.A who are not fortunate enough to go to one of the selected schools. Children utilising these vouchers must be accompanied by an adult.
