Prize money on offer for rounds two through six of the 2016 Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) presented by Motul Pirelli has been announced by Motorcycling Australia.

After awarding around $10,000 per round last year, MA has once again put forward an extensive prize pool for the upcoming season, which starts at Phillip Island on 26-28 February.

“It is great to deliver the level of prize money which is on offer for this year’s Australian Superbike Championship,” MA CEO David Cottee said. “The ASBK aims to attract the best racers in our country, from factory riders to privateers, so it’s great to be able to see riders finishing all the way back to 10th in the Superbike and Supersport classes, going home pocketing prize money.

“Our goal is to keep growing and developing the ASBK series and the prize pool is an integral part of the growth of the championship, so it’s fantastic to see these types of funds on offer for 2016.”

The ASBK Superbike class will boast $3150 up for grabs per round of the championship, with round winners set to collect $1200, second place $700, and third position taking home $400. The Supersport category round winner will once again take home a healthy $1000 per round, while second place will secure $600 and third will walk away with $300.

Moto3/125GP winners will take home $500 per round, while the victors of the Up to 300 Production, Over 300 Production, and Women’s Production classes will all take home $300 respectively.
