The abbreviated “pilot season” of the FIM World Supercross Championship is set to conclude at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia, on October 22nd. One unique aspect about this weekend’s race is that there is two separate races going back-to-back in the same stadium on the same track this weekend. The Friday night race has already been concluded and it was the first Round of the domestic 2022 Australian Supercross series, while the upcoming Saturday night event is saved for the second and final FIM World Supercross race.
The FIM World Supercross Championship pits 10 licensed teams from Australia, America, Italy, and France against each other, including NASCAR and IndyCar team owner, Rick Ware and two Australian teams – Honda Genuine and Craig Dack Racing. Each team fields two riders in both the WSX and SX2 classes.
Joining the 40 licensed team riders are two local wildcards in each category, with Melbourne’s WSX additions being led by South Australian KTM veteran, Brett Metcalfe. The multiple-time Australian Champion will compete against the best in the world from America, Germany, France, Italy, and Sweden. Joining him as a Melbourne wildcard is 26-year-old Aussie young gun, Kyle Webster. The SX2 Australian Grand Prix wildcards, Rhys Budd and Nathan Crawford, are a duo that has been at the top of their game in Australian motocross and Supercross competition.
