Additionally, M-9 are contributing toolboxes, each to the value of $600 for the pole position winners in both Superbike and Supersport categories for round 1 to start with.

But it’s not just the factory teams that get to share the spoils. New sponsors Perth Freightlines will be showing their support for up and coming talent by giving $250 to the highest placed privateers in both Superbike and Supersport class at each round.

Suzuki Motorcycles will also present one of their new RMZ-250’s to the winner of the Superstock 1000 class while the winner of the Women’s Championship will receive a KLX140 Big Wheel thanks to Kawasaki Motorcycles.
