SST TO RACE IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA OCTOBER 26-28

The Boost Mobile Stadium Super Trucks series will compete at Sydney Motorsport Park as part of the Australian Motor Racing Series (AMRS) program next week.

To be held over the October 26-28 weekend, it will come a week after the series was scheduled to compete as part of the supporting cast to the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship at the Vodafone Gold Coast 600.

SST was replaced on the bill by the Kumho Tyres Touring Car Series after CAMS suspended its Australian competition licence.

The AMRS is unaffiliated with CAMS, as it is run by the Benalla Auto Club-owned (BAC) Australian Auto Sport Alliance, and therefore can allow the category to compete.

“We are super excited to be able to give Australia what they want and that is for us to race,” said SST owner and competitor Robby Gordon.

“I want to thank Chris (Lewis-Williams, BAC CEO), Wayne (Williams, AMRS manager) and the team for asking us to come on board as part of the program, all of our sponsors and drivers are excited and looking forward to doing battle at the exciting Sydney Motorsport Park track.”

Williams hailed the addition of SST, which has not held an Australian round away from the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship since 2015, to the AMRS program.

“Everywhere they go, the Stadium Super Trucks pull a massive crowd, and we can’t wait to have them at Sydney Motorsport Park,” said Williams.

“They will put on a spectacular show for everyone watching, whether they’re at the track or viewing the live stream.

“Over the last couple of weeks, it’s no secret that Stadium Super Trucks has had to make some last-minute changes to their 2018 schedule, so we’re thrilled to have offered SST a place to compete and add them to our event program.”

Lewis-Williams is confident that the trucks are safe to race at a permanent circuit such as Sydney Motorsport Park after modifications which organisers made in light of the CAMS suspension.

“Sydney Motorsport Park is a very different venue to a street circuit, and the AASA and our insurers are comfortable with the work Stadium Super Trucks have done on addressing any safety concerns, such as improving the strength of the wheels and incorporating a new locking section for the body work,” he said.

“The Stadium Super Trucks are closely aligned to another series that the AASA sanctions, the ARB Australian Off Road Racing Championship, so we’re aware of the strength of the vehicles and similarity of those vehicles to the Stadium Super Trucks.

“Our job at the AASA is to assist categories to go racing and that’s the opportunity we’ve been able to create for Stadium Super Trucks who want to keep racing in Australia.

“Although one avenue (Gold Coast) was shut down, that’s the beauty of having choice in the market, there is an alternate sanctioning body to give categories an opportunity to make a choice about how they want their motor racing to be run.

“The AASA and AMRS are completely aware of the popularity of Stadium Super Trucks and are pleased we’re able to give them an opportunity to continue racing here.”

Defending champion Paul Morris also welcomed the news.

“It’s awesome to be able to race in Australia in the Stadium Super Trucks at Sydney Motorsport Park next weekend,” said Morris.

“It’s extremely obvious from the public backlash that motorsport fans want to see us race and see the series continue to compete in Australia.”

The occasion will be the first time that Stadium Super Trucks has raced at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Its previous appearances in the Harbour City both came in 2015, at Sydney Speedway near Parramatta and at the Sydney 500 at Olympic Park.

By joining the AMRS bill, SST will share the weekend with 10 other categories, which include the GT-1 Australia, Australian Formula Ford, and Performax TA2 Muscle Car Series, with Sunday’s racing to be live streamed.

The news comes after Peter Adderton, founder of the series new Australian naming rights sponsor, criticised CAMS for what he claimed is an ongoing failure to disclose to SST exactly how the series can comply with the governing body’s safety requirements.

CAMS CEO Eugene Arocca claims that SST has in fact been informed and that he would not discuss the matter with a sponsor.

Matt Brabham leads the series with one more event set to come, at Glen Helen Raceway in California, after Sydney.

Glen Helen is on board and ready to do everything possible to make it a truly unique race experience for everyone.”

UTV Pro is Quickly becoming one of the most popular, and most affordable forms of off-road racing today. The UTV division will feature two different classes with the Turbo and Normally Aspirated cars. The two classes will be competing together for a large $10,000 to win overall prize.

Rights Deal Signed For Stadium Super Trucks In Australia

Boost Mobile boss Peter Adderton has signed a three-year rights deal for Stadium Super Trucks in Australia and is in discussion with Supercars management to make them a regular support act at major events in 2019 and beyond.

The Boost Mobile Group, which is a major sponsor of Walkinshaw Andretti United, has penned the deal with SST creator Robby Gordon with the idea of giving the category stability and a bigger presence in Australia.

It is believed that Adderton met with Supercars boss Sean Seamer at the Australian Grand Prix in March and the basis of those conversations encouraged him to further negotiations with Gordon.

A dynamic marketer, Adderton has already started building a management team and wants to meet with Supercars bosses as soon as possible in an effort to get a 2019 calendar confirmed.

Adderton has employed former Adelaide 500 General Manager Nathan Cayzer to head-up the new championship, while the logistics will be handled by Paul Morris Motorsport at this Norwell Motorplex on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

Cayzer and former Adelaide 500 co-worker Craig Dontas brought Stadium Super Trucks series to Australia back 2015 after meeting with Robby Gordon at the 2014 Long Beach Indycar event.

The Supercars event wish list includes the Australian Grand Prix, Perth, Darwin, Townsville, Gold Coast and Newcastle.

There has also been discussions of a dirt/tarmac event under lights at the new Tailem Bend circuit in South Australia and a possible link with the XGames, which will be held in Australia for the next three years.

“I can confirm that we have the SST rights in Australia for the next three years,” said Adderton.

“What we do with them and what the final championship looks like is in the hands of third parties, including Supercars, who we are looking forward to sitting down with again.

“So many people have identified the potential of the Stadium Super Trucks, but we have done something about it.

“Whether Supercars want to play ball with us or not, we will be taking Stadium Super Trucks to a whole new level in this country and building on what is already a large, young and engaged audience.

“Watching these SST trucks for the first time, the crowd reaction was a real eye opener for me and I believe the motorsport fans deserved more than just three events .”

It is believed that a couple of stadium events are also planned as part of the Australian championship, but there will be a series of standalone events if an agreement cannot be reached for an extension of the current Supercars program.

While a non-traditional form of motorsport, the SST races have been a massive hit with fans on both sides of the Pacific.

The popularity has not only been through fans on track, but through a massive social media following which is one of the largest in world motorsports.

Adderton used motocross and off-road events in the US to build his Boost Mobile brand and has relationships with high-profile competitors like Chad Reed, Toby Price, and Robby Maddison, who could all possibly make appearances in the Australian championship.

VP Racing Lubricants and Apdaly Lopez Claim Victory in First SST Event of 2018

Lake Elsinore, California (January 28, 2018) – The 2018 SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks World Championship kicked off Saturday night with a return to the sold out Lake Elsinore Diamond Stadium in Lake Elsinore, California. Fans in attendance witnessed one of the most entertaining and dramatic filled SST events in quite some time as VP Racing Lubricants driver Apdaly Lopez would claim the first SST victory of 2018 over Jeff Hoffman.

Fifth starting Apdaly Lopez of Tecate, Baja California, Mexico is no stranger to the temporary off-road track the A.M. Ortega crew built inside the Lake Elsinore Diamond Stadium. Lopez would dominate the opening round of competition in the Stadium SUPER Trucks Race and Rock World Championship Finals back in December, and would look to back that up in the opening round of 2018 dawning a new partnership from VP Racing Lubricants.

The start of the 16-lap main event would see the newest member of Team UFD Jeff Hoffman of Phoenix, Arizona jump out to an early lead on first time SST starter Cole Potts of Scottsdale, Arizona.

The first lap would see action all over the track as potential race winners Sheldon Creed of El Cajon, California and Jerett Brooks of Alpine, California would become locked together dropping back in the field early in the event.

Robby Gordon of Orange, California driving the SPEED Energy/ Toyo Tires truck would settle into the second position behind Hoffman on Lap-2, and would quickly challenge for the top position. Battling back and forth Hoffman would over drive the corner, and would allow Gordon to take the top spot, and drive out to a sizable lead.

Following in the tracks of the hard charging Gordon for multiple laps the LIVE truck of Hoffman would hit all his marks with accuracy, and would make up enough ground to come close enough to challenge Gordon back for the lead. Hoffman would pass Gordon for the lead in a daring move to the inside just before the competition caution would fly over the field. At the halfway mark Hoffman would lead Gordon, and Brooks who battled his way back thru the chaos into the top three after the early tangle in the event with Creed.

The restart would see Hoffman loose the handle of his truck in the first corner kicking it up on two wheels, the lurking Gordon would capitalize launching the No. 7 back into the lead. Dropping into the third position behind Hoffman would be Lopez who was battling thru the field after making early contact in the event with various competitors. At this point Lopez truck was showing signs of nothing short of war.

Driving like a man possessed Lopez would now set his sights on Gordon and the top spot. Finding just the right opening to drive his truck in extremely hard into the lower groove Lopez would work Gordon up the track to move past him in textbook dirt track racing fashion.

However, Hoffman would have something to say about that, as he would take his joker lap to catapult back into the lead ahead of Lopez all while Gordon would work his way back past Lopez for second. Just when you think things are working in the favor of the driver they call “The Hoff” his truck would stall in the middle of the corner dropping him back to the fifth position.

All while the red flag would wave stopping an incredible battle out front. Brooks driving in replacement for the injured Paul Morris would roll over his LIVE entry onto the side right in the path of on coming trucks.

The restart would see Gordon get a good jump on the second place Lopez to break out to a four-truck advantage.

One lap later the red flag would once again come out for SST rookie Blade Hildebrand of Yucca Valley, California, as his Empire Destructive entry would go for a series of rolls going over the crossover jump. The young driver would remain in the truck and restart at the back of the field a true test of the durability and construction of these Stadium SUPER Trucks.

The closing laps would see Lopez drive extremely aggressive looking to charge to the front of the field making contact with Gordon multiple times and eventually moving past him. Hoffman lingering back in third place would want into that party as he would slide around the outside of both drivers to take the lead on the final lap. Lopez would battle back as Hoffman’s truck would stumble temporarily allowing Lopez to open up a sizable lead.

The beaten and battered VP Racing Lubricants truck of Apdaly Lopez would cross the finish line first capturing victory in round 1of the 2018 SST World Championship. Hoffman would cross the line in the second position, followed by teammate Gavin Harlien who would get past Gordon in the closing corners.

Even though a driver may win a race in Stadium SUPER Trucks, the overall weekend point’s title is earned by gaining points every time a driver is on track in competition and second finishing Jeff Hoffman driving the LIVE entry would be a perfect example of that in Round 1 of the 2018 SST World Championship.

Consistency is the name of the game and Hoffman was able to back that up. Qualifying in the third position, finishing in the second position in the heat race, and following those efforts up with a second place finish in the main event. Hoffman would earn enough points to best Sheldon Creed by 2, and Apdaly Lopez by 3 to capture his first ever SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks overall.

The 2018 SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks World Championship will continue with Round 2, 3, 4; March 1-4 in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia for the Adelaide 500. Proud Stadium SUEPR Trucks supporters LIVE will be playing in concert Saturday night, March 3. Advanced tickets are available for purchase at https://stadiumsupertrucks.com
