Championship Leader to debut New Superbike at Masters Finale

adelaide-mastersEntries for the finale of this years Adelaide Masters Series are still coming in but already the event is looking like being the highlight of the 2013 Motorcycle Racing season at Mondello Park. Top billing will go to the Superbike and Supersport classes with one of the big attractions being the début of a brand new Superbike for championship leader Derek Sheils.

The fifth and last race meeting of the championship schedule takes place this weekend on the Mondello Park International Circuit, the third different track to be used this season. Having started the 2013 Championship back in April with continued backing from Motorcycle Insurance Specialists Adelaide Insurance Services, the prestigious championship has visited the Mondello Park National Circuit three times and made one visit to Bishopscourt Co. Down and now concludes on the Mondello Park International layout for the final three races of its fourteen round schedule.

Top of the entry list this weekend will be Road Racing star and current Adelaide Masters Superbike Championship leader Derek Sheils. The Dubliner was unstoppable early in the season and looks likely to get back to his dominant ways this weekend as he lines up on a brand new Superbike machine. The Chris Dowd Racing team will supply Sheils with a new Kawasaki Superbike built and run for the weekend by British Superbike Championship Team, MSS Kawasaki. Sheils will be sampling the bike this weekend in the hope of upping his game for the final event of the year, but also with one eye on preparing for an even bigger effort in 2014.

Adding to the excitement of the Superbike and Supersport championship battles this Sunday will be the return for the first time this year of the Grand Final. The Big Money all-comers race will bring together the top riders from the Superbike and Supersport classes to compete together once their championship battles are completed. There will be a massive prize fund on offer for this one-off race which will be a fine way to finish the season.

Admission to either day of the Adelaide Masters Event is just €10.00 for adults with under sixteen's admitted free of charge. Further information on the series, including the event timetable and interviews with the top riders can be found at
