Belgium’s Supermoto roots are deeply entrenched in Mettet, which has been the cradle of Superbiker for over 30 years. It would seem fitting, therefore, that the RUMESM would jump at the chance of organising the opening round of the Supermoto Belgian Championship and the Supermoto BeNeCup!
Supermoto is one of the most all-round motorsports disciplines, since it combines speed-racing with cross-country biking. Thrills and spills are guaranteed at every corner, ensuring an exhilarating spectator sport for fans.
Belgium’s top bikers will be on the grid ready to hit a track which partly follows the permanent circuit and partly a dirt-track area specially built for the occasion with obstacles that will have motocross fans in raptures. Kévin Vieillevoye will be fighting to defend his third consecutive title, but Ashley Barber, Olivier Pope, Sébastien Bouillon and others will be doing their level best to stop him. And, as always, numerous international riders have expressed an interest in taking part.
Watching a Supermoto race never leaves any spectator indifferent – always a dramatic and exciting show, the sport is full of nail-biting skids, thanks to the multi-surface track it takes place on, and dizzying, vertiginous jumps that ensure a breathtaking experience for fans.
With so many categories available, Supermoto allows a wide range of drivers to take part, whatever their skill level. The ‘Prestige’ class continues to be the most competitive of all, whilst the ‘Quad’ class never fails to offer unexpected twists. From today, they can also order their license “1 event” through the new application of the FMB.
As for the public, it will be able to attend the spectacle from the natural grandstands which offer a panoramic view on the circuit. Free parking is available on the upper paddock.
