Supermoto Aces Rev Up For Moto1 - October 10th 2004

    Supermoto

    An impressive line-up of Supermoto champions are heading to Moto1 at Donington Park on October 30-31, all chasing victory at the largest motorcycle sport festival ever staged.

    Supermoto is a relatively new sport, requiring a unique skill to race on a circuit of both dirt and tarmac and is one of the four sports each of the 24 Moto1 hopefuls will contest ­ along with road racing, trials and motocross.

    Reigning British Supermoto Champion David Tougher believes: ³Moto1 is a real tester for riders, a proving ground to discover Britainıs best all-rounder on a sports motorcycle.²

    Ulsterman Tougher adds: ³Iım confident in the Supermoto and Motocross elements but havenıt much experience in the Road Racing segment ­ that may well determine the eventual overall winner.²

    Last yearıs British Supermoto Champion Leighton Haigh reckons: ³Moto1 is the best thing to happen to motorcycle sport in years. It will determine who is the best but itıs going to be an incredible, fun event for riders and spectators.²

    Tougher and Haigh are joined by 2001 British champion Ady Smith and Lurgan, Northern Ireland female racer Anita Doran who arrives at Moto1 with 10 years of motocross experience and a National Supermoto title.²

    Moto1 Managing Director Robbie Allan says: ³The Supermoto entry weıve been able to assemble is impressive. Iım convinced it is these riders - who are not necessarily always in the media spotlight - who will give the more fancied Moto1 entries a real surprise or two.²
