Retired three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss has signed on as an ambassador of motoDNA’s ‘Big Day Out’ program which will return to Broadford on 16 September after a successful showing last year.

Bayliss will add insight and provide expert advice to participants, with the coaching event aimed at benefiting junior road racers by providing on and off-track development activities.

“We are very excited to have Troy Bayliss on board as the motoDNA Foundation ambassador,” said motoDNA’s Mark McVeigh.

“Not only is Troy an absolute legend through his racing exploits, he is also one of the most personable and modest racers I know. Troy will be a great asset in taking the Foundation to the next level in Australasia.”

The 2012 program featured mentors the likes of Casey Stoner and Kevin Magee, along with racers and identities from the wider motorsport arena including V8 Supercar driver Craig Lowndes and his team principal at Red Bull Racing, Roland Dane.

Bookings for the event can now be made online at motoDNA’s website. Options are available for junior riders, new track riders and intermediate and experienced track riders, along with the chance to join the invite-only VIP group. Spectator tickets can also be purchased.

The motoDNA Foundation is a not-for-profit program aimed at providing a pathway for Australian riders to world championship racing.

Funds raised from the ‘Big Day Out’ will be used to further develop the motoDNA program and to ensure a continual high-level of coaching, mentoring and management is available.
