Mondello Park is looking forward to continuing to grow its premier motorcycle racing championship, the 'Adelaide Masters Series' in 2014, following the announcement that long term supporters, Motorcycle Insurance Specialists, Adelaide Insurance Services, will continue as title sponsor.
The Irish based motorcycle insurer has been instrumental in assisting the County Kildare circuit with its promotion of Irish Short Circuit Motorcycle Racing since 2011 and for 2014 will increase their involvement. The increased involvement will assist the organisers in attracting bigger names to the series and looking for new and more comprehensive TV coverage outlets.
The series will retain its basic format for 2014 with some small changes being worked on which will make it more attractive to competitors. The race events will continue to concentrate on the Superbike and Supersport classes but efforts are being made to find ways to cut costs for riders in these classes, with limits on the numbers of tyres per weekend being one possibility.
Efforts are also being made to find ways to increase the exposure given to the support races, both through the Series web site www.adelaidemasters.ie and the championship TV coverage. To assist in making the series more viable for competitors, a riders' forum will be held in January to discuss possible changes and improvements.
One of the biggest elements of the Adelaide Masters Series growth has been its TV coverage. For 2014 a number of TV options are being discussed, including a continuation of the UTV programmes, expansion onto other stations and the possible creation of an Adelaide Masters Series programme on Mondello Park's very successful web streaming channel, Mondello.TV.
Further details of the calendar, race day format, rule changes and TV coverage will be announced in due course. For further information see www.adelaidemasters.ie.
