By MA Media 0

Goulburn’s rebranded One Raceway will again reverberate to the sights and sounds of Australia’s fastest riders when round six of the 2024 mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul is held at the circuit from October 4-6.One Raceway, formerly Wakefield Park, will host the penultimate round of the ASBK Championship following a suite of major upgrades to the 2.2km circuit, which includes new and improved turns, a complete resurface, rider safety upgrades and 10-metre-high noise walls constructed at the northern and southern ends of the circuit – a bonus for spectators, as they’ll also double as viewing platforms for amazing views of all the action in every part of the circuit.A significant new feature will be the circuit’s ability to race in either direction for both motorcycles and cars.

The multi-million-dollar transformation sets the scene for a spectacular return to the Goulburn venue, which had been a long-time host of the ASBK but has now been revived under new ownership. The last ASBK Championship round was held at One Raceway in 2022.Steve Shelley, CEO, One Raceway:“What a journey we have been on in 2023! The transformation in One Raceway is one we’re very proud of, and to see events like the ASBK Championship returning is a validation of all the money and time invested.“We are very excited to welcome the ASBK paddock in early October next year. I am sure the riders will love the new layout and improvements of the circuit.”Cr Peter Walker, Mayor, Goulburn Mulwaree Council:“To see One Raceway rewarded with the ASBK Championship after its rejuvenation is a great story and a real boost for the local economy.“One Raceway and the ASBK Championship have a rich tradition, and we can’t wait to welcome riders, teams and spectators as another chapter is added in 2024.”Peter Doyle, the CEO of Motorcycling Australia:“I’m delighted that One Raceway is returning to the ASBK Championship in 2024. The venue has been a staple on the ASBK calendar over the years and will be making a celebrated return with some exciting updates and changes.“The investment made to the circuit has been substantial, and we must credit the new owners for their highly professional approach. And with the new asphalt, we’re set to see some scintillating racing between Australia’s best riders and lap records likely to be smashed.”
