Aussie legends at ASBK

GMC Cooyar was proud to be a part of Round 5 of the Australian Superbike Championship last weekend which drew record crowds to Morgan Park Raceway in Queensland.

Motorcycling fans of all ages were treated to some exciting racing and many of Australia’s racing greats were at the event, including Garry McCoy, Troy Bayliss, Chris Vermeulen, Jason Crump, Mick Doohan, Steve Martin, Shawn Giles and Craig Connell.

Thanks to everyone that dropped by the GMC Cooyar stand in ‘Trade Alley’.  We had some tremendous support and interest in Garry McCoy’s Coaching Programs.

“I was thrilled to see so many kids out there, lining up to meet their Aussie heroes. I’m looking forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with these kids.  My coaching programs have a strong focus on junior racer development and hopefully I can help get some more young Aussie riders on to the world stage”, Garry said.

McCoy clearly had a lot of fun himself when he cut some laps during the lunch break with his good mate Troy Bayliss, Steve Martin and Shawn Giles.  Spectators at turns 3 and 7 got a thrilling close up view of what happens when former MotoGP and World Superbike riders come out to play!

If you didn’t make it trackside, be sure to check out the action when the TV coverage airs on 7mate in a couple of weeks!
