With the announcement of Supercross Africa, the countdown to the most exciting Supercross action to hit the Southern Hemisphere has started. Loftus Versfeld will be hosting the event on the 1st of November 2014, when the 100 year old field will be transformed into a giant supercross track (how freaking cool?!).
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 kitty. 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.

The Event will run under the auspices of Motorsport South Africa (MSA) and has also been inscribed on the FIM calendar.
