McGrath will be at the Super X in Canberra this weekend.

With 12 individual career championship titles under his belt, legendary Califonian Supercross racer Jeremy McGrath is set to join the Australasian Super X series with full support from Woodstock Honda Thor Racing at Canberra in the ACT this Saturday night.

The King of Supercross will be racing at the Canberra and Sydney rounds of Super X and although he won’t figure in the overall championship, he may have a significant impact on those who will.

Team principal of Woodstock Honda Thor Racing, Yarrive Konsky is enthusiastic about the arrival of one of the biggest names in Supercross.

“Jeremy is an out and out champion and the team can’t wait to have him join us for what promises to be an enthralling round. And don’t be fooled by his part time status – he’s absolutely got what it takes to run at the front and we’ll be doing our all to ensure he has the bike and setup to be there.”

This weeekend’s Canberra round will be held at Canberra stadium with the Sydney round going off at Parramatta Stadium the following week.
