The sport has come a long way in Western Australia, being introduced to Australia's motorcycle racing culture only 4 years ago. The KTM Australian Supermoto Championship is taking place all weekend in Northam where 900 tonnes of dirt has been carted in to produce one of the greatest racing events on the streets of WA.
Born and bred in Europe, the sport is becoming more popular by the minute. With over 115 competitors arriving in WA from around Australia and from Italy for this special event, there have been discussions held with Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi about the potential of hosting the World Championship or a World Style Event right here in the heart of the city - with the outcome looking very positive.
