ASBK ’22: QUEENSLAND RACEWAY BACK ON THE CALENDAR

The mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul (ASBK) returns to Queensland Raceway (QR) from 11th – 13th March for round two of the 2022 ASBK Championship.

The March event will be the first time the ASBK Championship has competed at Queensland Raceway since 2014, and the first under the new ownership of famed motorsport competitor and multi-track owner, Tony Quinn.

The 3.12km National Circuit will be in use and it has six challenging corners. The QR layout offers fans the opportunity to follow any battle or racer around the whole circuit. Under Tony Quinn’s ownership, the venue is undertaking some initial improvements and longer-term plans are underway for the next iteration of the circuit.

Peter Doyle, CEO of Motorcycling Australia: “It’s great to see the ASBK Championship return to Queensland Raceway now under Tony Quinn’s ownership and guidance. We’ve all seen what he’s done elsewhere and know he’s a fan of the sport as well as being an astute businessman. The 2022 event promises much and we’re working together with QR to really deliver a great event for Ipswich and the Greater Brisbane area.”

Tony Quinn, operator of Queensland Raceway: “We are so excited to welcome the Australian Superbike Championship back to Queensland Raceway. It’s been seven years since QR last hosted the Championship and we’re looking forward to having Australia’s best riders at our track again. ASBK provides some of the most heart-racing entertainment in the country and we can’t wait to see it live in Ipswich in 2022.”

The 2022 mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul Queensland Raceway round will be held from 11th-13th March 2022.
