Australia’s leading sporting medical team confirmed for Motul Pirelli Troy Bayliss Classic

Leading sporting medical facility Suzuki RACESAFE will be trackside at the January 18 Motul Pirelli Troy Bayliss Classic at Taree Motorcycle track, ensuring the best possible medical support for riders competing in the 2014 event.

The Suzuki RACESAFE team is Australia’s largest specialised motorsport safety service and the only organisation providing a full range of racetrack emergency services including a highly-specialised and experienced team of trauma doctors, paramedics, nurses, physiotherapists and rescue personnel who donate their time and expertise for motorsport safety.

RACESAFE Director of Emergency Services Simon Maas said his team is thrilled to be returning for the 2014 event.

“Last year’s event was simply amazing and some of the closest bar to bar racing I’ve seen,” Maas said. “Whilst some of these All-stars might have a few more grey hairs, they have lost none of their skills.

“We are very honoured to be chosen by Troy to take care of him and his list of All-Star riders. The Suzuki RACESAFE team is very proud that it provides an international level of medical services and we take our role of caring for the motorcycle racing community very seriously.

“Of course we will be hoping not to do much work, but I know the riders are very appreciative to have this level of expertise in the Suzuki RACESAFE Doctors and Paramedics watching over them. It’s an exciting way to start the year for the volunteer RACESAFE medics and our sponsors that are dedicated to rider safety and make the Suzuki RACESAFE service possible,” Maas added.

In addition to the 36 international and national motorcycle racing legends and all-stars who will vie for the coveted Troy Bayliss Cup, the RACESAFE team will also provide medical services for the 120 domestic racers who will contest support categories including Unlimited, Pro 450cc, Sidecar, Evo, Junior 65cc and 85cc and for the first time a Women’s class.

The women’s class will feature twelve of Australia’s best female racers including X-Games silver medallist Meghan Rutledge, 2013 Loretta Lynns Championship title holder MacKenzie Tricker, Queensland’s top dirt track racer Jessica Shepherd and leading endurance rider Taylor Jones.
