Newcastle is an old harbor city that is located 150km north of Sydney.

Nobbys Beach on the west edge of the city has white beautiful sand and is a popular tourist spot.

This race was held at the park in Nobbys Beach and public roads around that area.

Course design was Australian (i.e. motocross active) like.

Long dirt sections (almost 30%!!) that included a high speed jump

and a Tarmac section with a straight line and chicane.

There are no corners like a regular circuit because they are using public roads.

(But the audience could see sliding rides in the beginning of dirt section.

Hats off to them for the thinking about the audience.)

Which means the speed in the dirt section was the key to the race.

So many riders were using rain tires for both front and rear.

This championship was a part of a festival in Newcastle and it was held for an audience.

It seems like almost a hundred thousand people were there.

The actual number wasn’t announced but according to what I saw 20 thousand came for sure.

No entrance fee. Families and all kind of people enjoyed and attended the event.

FASM attracted a large audience and so many countries joined. So it was successful.
