7 Days until Monster Energy Supercross Africa comes to Loftus!
The Countdown to the most exciting Supercross Action to Hit Africa has started!
Loftus Versfeld will be hosting the greatest Supercross event ever staged in Africa on the 1st of November 2014, when the 100 year old field will be transformed into a giant supercross track.
In what has been described as “the most physically demanding sport in existence”, the event will pitch some of the world’s best riders against local talent to compete for the monstrous fifty thousand US dollars prize purse. Fans can look forward to jaw dropping displays of skill and speed by their favourite champions as they negotiate huge triple jumps and tight turns on powerful bikes, while engaging in Extreme Racing. An FMX (Freestyle Motocross) insert will entertain fans with Big Air Jumps and insane tricks by both local and international stars. By hosting it at Loftus stadium, everyone will get an upfront view from their seat as riders rip it up in the ultimate adrenalin event.
The stadium-size Supercross Track was masterminded by Justin Barclay, the creative mind behind some of the best tracks in the world of off-road and will feature around 3000 tons of dirt and sculpted obstacles.
With over 45 top riders from all over the world confirmed to compete for the biggest purse in South African motorsport, the first ever Supercross Africa is guaranteed to keep the fans out of their seats and on their feet throughout the day.
Other exciting activities, such as open pit areas and rider autograph sessions will be available throughout the afternoon. A massive after party will round off the event. Tickets for Monster Energy Supercross Africa is now on sale through TicketPro (www.ticketpro.co.za) and range from R150 to R350.
The Event will run under the auspices of Motorsport South Africa (MSA) and has also been inscribed on the FIM calendar. Motorsport South Africa is the only recognized Motorsport Federation in South Africa.

We promote concert tours, so our favourite bands can visit your home town. We celebrate with our fans and riders by throwing parties and making the coolest events we can think of a reality.
About Motorsport South Africa:
Motorsport is controlled worldwide by two governing bodies: the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) responsible for all forms of automobile sport, and the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), responsible for all categories of motorcycling. The Commission Internationale de Karting (CIK), forms part of the FIA.
Both the FIA and FIM recognise only one National Federation in each country, with such Federation in turn being responsible for the control and administration of the sport in its own country. In South Africa, the FIA and FIM have transferred their sporting powers to Motorsport – South Africa (MSA) and all motorsporting events in the country are held in accordance with FIA and FIM Sporting Codes. South Africa is one of only a few countries responsible for the control of both car and motorcycle sporting events, with most other countries having separate governing bodies for the two disciplines.
