Mayor sup­ports chase for su­per­moto ti­tles

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Mayor Jennifer Whit­ney has given the Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sport Club coun­cil’s back­ing to host the world ti­tles.

The Whit­sun­day Race­way has been touted as a po­ten­tial venue for the Su­per­Moto World Cham­pi­onships in 2018, af­ter host­ing the hugely suc­cess­ful Aus­tralian Su­per­moto Cham­pi­onships ear­lier this month.

“It would be fan­tas­tic for the Whit­sun­day re­gion and lo­cal tourism if the 2018 world cham­pi­onships of su­per­moto rac­ing were held here,” Cr Whit­ney said.

“I have spo­ken to the race or­gan­is­ers and coun­cil is happy to work with them to bring the event here.” Cr Whit­ney praised the club, high­light­ing the na­tional ti­tles as a glow­ing body of ev­i­dence.

Mo­tor­cy­cling Queens­land pres­i­dent Derek Rum­ble last week sub­mit­ted an ex­pres­sion of in­ter­est for the track to be con­sid­ered for the world cham­pi­onships.
