The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit will host the inaugural ‘Australian All Wheels Race Fest’ in February 2021, with the Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships and mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul (ASBK) joining forces at the iconic Victorian circuit.
Motorsport Australia and Motorcycling Australia will conduct the 19-21 February 2021 event, which will feature motorcycles and cars in what will be the ultimate 2+4 motorsport event for all race fans.
The event will showcase the fastest two and four wheeled machines in what is sure to be an adrenaline filled weekend packed with racing for ASBK and car racing fans alike.
More event details will be confirmed in the coming month, and Motorcycling Australia and Motorsport Australia will work closely to create an unique experience for competitors and spectators in bringing the two national championships together. Closer to the event working with government authorities with the aim to welcome race fans to the Australian All Wheels Race Fest at Phillip Island next year.

Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle
“This is a fantastic opportunity to be working with Motorsport Australia to deliver a spectacular event at a venue that has so much history for both two-wheel and four-wheel motorsport,” Doyle said.
“The Australian All Wheels Race Fest idea has been spoken about for some time and both Motorcycling Australia and Motorsport Australia look forward to working together closely.
“This is an idea that motorsport fans have wanted for some time, and together with Motorsport Australia there is a real passion from us to deliver cross discipline world-class event.
‘’When we bring our collective rider, driver and teams together in the same paddock, we know it will deliver the best on track action and a sensational fan experience.
‘’Not only will it be a great fan experience, but also a great learning experience for our respective organisations which will improve our own championships in the future.”
Rounds 2 and 3 of the 2021 mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship, presented by Motul, will be held at Winton Motor Raceway (March 12-14) and Wakefield Park Raceway (April 16-18).
Morgan Park has also been confirmed on the calendar for the weekend of August 20-22, 2021 before ASBK then heads to South Australia for round six at The Bend. The South Australian round will feature a Superbike Doubleheader of ASBK and FIM Asia Road Racing Championships.
ASBK have indicated that the Official ASBK Pre-Season Test will be staged over two-days at Phillip Island on January 27 and 28. The day immediately prior is, of course, the Australia Day Public Holiday. I can imagine that team officials are already scrambling to try and secure accommodation.
The 2021 Official ASBK Pre-Season Test will host bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup, YMI Supersport 300, YMF R3 Cup, Motorsports TV Supersport, and Kawasaki Superbike class competitors. Giving them their first chance to blowout their Christmas cobwebs and test new machinery and set-ups to their limits in preparation for a blockbuster 2021 ASBK Championship.
But of course before 2021 gets underway we still have 2020 champions to be crowned! Race fans can catch all the drama and action from the 2020 ASBK Grand Finale at Wakefield Park Raceway, December 3-6, live via ASBK TV partners SBSHD, Fox Sports Australia and Fox Sports Asia on both Saturday and Sunday.
