CHARLOTTE, N.C. – official series release — SST photo —
Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks will return to Australia later this year for a two-round series including a stadium event at the Spotless Stadium at the Sydney Showgrounds on Oct. 31.
Created by former IndyCar, NASCAR and off-road driver Robby Gordon, the Stadium Super Trucks were a crowd favorite when they made their debut on the temporary street course at the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercar event in Adelaide in March.
A continued wave of interest from fans has encouraged promoters to create a serious two-round Australian series, which will include the first stadium event outside of North America.
The series will also include street/ramp races at the Castrol Gold Coast 600 at Surfers Paradise from Oct. 23-25.
The series of races will include 10 trucks from Robby Gordon’s Charlotte-based stable which are set to be piloted by a mixture of US and Australian drivers, who will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
“We had a hell of a time at the Clipsal 500 in March and we were delighted with the way the Aussie fans embraced our spectacular trucks,” said Gordon. “We have no shortage of US or Australian drivers wanting to be involved in this two-event series so the quality is going to be outstanding.
“While the Australian fans have seen how spectacular our trucks can be on the ramps on a street track, they are in for a special treat with our stand alone stadium event at Spotless Stadium, Sydney Showgrounds. It’s going to be crazy.”
The Stadium Super Trucks are purpose-built machines with 600 horsepower that are capable of reaching speeds in excess of 200 kph. Even more impressive is their unique suspension which allows them to jump almost 10 metres in the air and much further than that in distance.
The Stadium Super Trucks will also be supported by a range of action sports activity that will allow local riders and drivers the chance to perform on the world stage.
