As Australia is already celebrating 2013 that we here on the East Coast of the United States are still 12 hours away, I’ve submitted my application for the 2013 SBK Superbike FIM World Championship at Phillip Island Circuit in Victoria. I realized I will be in the area as I booked my flights to New Zealand and quickly decided to request the application. Interestingly enough the staff at the circuit encouraged me to apply on December 27 even though the application deadline was December 21. I guess they require more marshals, so hopefully I do get selected.
I’m very excited about this opportunity as it will keep me well busy while I’m down under, with events happening pretty much every single weekend. One of my favorite parts will be the flights from New South Wales to Victoria, to the North Island of New Zealand and then South Australia, followed by Victoria, etc.
For my last big trip to Australia and New Zealand this should be simply awesome!
