Jimboomba X Stadium to Host Grand Final Round of Australian Supercross Championship
After a huge kick-off to the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship last month, Jimboomba X Stadium in south-east Queensland is set to do it again when the popular venue plays host to the sixth and grand final round of the series on Saturday, November 18.
Once more the local Logan community and businesses will be throwing their support behind the spectacular event, which will feature the best Australian and American dirt bike racers fighting over the prestige and prizes that come with being crowned Australian champion.
The City of Logan Council weighed in with major sponsorship of last month’s Australian Supercross Championship opener and is doing so again for next month’s grand final.
Likewise Logan-based TFH Hire Services, which provides builders and contractors equipment hire services, is a major sponsor of both Jimboomba rounds, as is Logan Law, a local law services office that is keen to assist anyone who has ‘copped one in the bumper’.
Other local Logan businesses that have pledged their support of the Australian Supercross Championship final round include LED Light Group (light towers) and AE Group Civil & Mining (construction project management).
“Having strong local community and business support is vital to the staging of events of the stature of the Australian Supercross Championship,” explains Jimboomba X Stadium event organiser Scott Bannan.
“We’re extremely proud the City of Logan Council has been a longtime supporter of our events at Jimboomba X Stadium, as have many local businesses and organisations, while we have partnered with the #endalldv domestic violence campaign for both rounds.
“The opening round of the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship last month was a great success that drew a huge crowd of local south-east Queensland dirt bike fans and families and next month’s final round promises to be even bigger,” Bannan enthuses.
The local Logan businesses will join the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship series sponsors of round six – Motorex, Dunlop, Yamaha and KTM – to make the next Jimboomba X Stadium race another event to remember for supercross fans.
Round one of the Championship saw reigning number one plate holder, American supercross star Justin Brayton (Penrite Honda) bring the vocal Jimboomba crowd to its feet on his way to winning the premier SX1 final.
Behind the American ace, Australian motocross champion Dean Ferris (CDR Yamaha) and local Logan product and former multi-time Australian champion Daniel Reardon (Mega Fuels Monster Energy Kawasaki) fought it out for the podium placings.
In the SX2 final, USA-based Australian Hayden Mellross (DPH Motorsport Yamaha) took the win ahead of another American star, former Australian champion Gavin Faith (Penrite Honda), with Queensland youngster Mitch Evans (Serco Yamaha) completing the podium.
Rounds two through five of the 2017 Australian Supercross Championship will charge through venues in Bacchus Marsh (Victoria), Virginia (SA) and Homebush (NSW) over coming weeks, before the grand finale back at Jimboomba X Stadium on November 18.
Also joining the big-name stars on-track at Jimboomba will be Junior riders in the SX Junior Lites and SX Junior 85 classes, which this year have been granted Championship status by Motorcycling Australia to foster the next generation of Supercross champions.
