In 2017 the SuperGP Champions Trophy and Africa Bike Week™ joined forces for the first time. After the success of the inaugural event, GAS Sports and Africa Bike Week™ are pleased to announce that the partnership will continue in 2018.
This year Africa Bike Week™ will take place between 26 and 29 April with the Eastern Cape SuperGP, the third round of the 2018 championship, taking place at the iconic East London Grand Prix Circuit on 27 and 28 April.
Africa Bike Week™ was held in East London for the first time in 2017 after 8 years in Margate on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast with bikers giving the new venue, which features an entertainment area that can accommodate up to 4 500 riders at any one time, a resounding thumbs-up.
The SuperGP Champions Trophy, South Africa’s leading motorcycle racing series, enters its fifth season in 2018 with each year building on the success of the previous years with many of its alumni going on to great things on the international stage.
Executive Director of GAS Sports, Stephen Watson, said, “In 2017 we partnered with Africa Bike Week™ for the first time. Positive feedback, from both riders and fans alike, has prompted us to continue working together to build an even better event in 2018. Africa Bike Week™ has grown into South Africa’s premier motorcycle lifestyle event and the inclusion of world-class superbike racing enhances the overall weekend experience for motorcycle enthusiasts.”
Carl Frayne, Africa Bike Week™ Project Manager, said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Super GP again this year. Being the 115th Harley-Davidson® Motor Company anniversary and the 10th presentation of Africa Bike Week™ the 2018 event is going to be a celebration of the sport of motorcycling and the related lifestyle. Add to that top SA bands performing daily on the main stage, Stunt Shows, Flight Night, Trial Bike displays, BMW & Skateboard action and Africa Bike Week™ 2018 is a must-attend event. Free registration online also puts event attendees into a lucky draw to win a new Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
