Alister McRae returning to the Adelaide Motorsport Festival on two wheels

Scottish rally driver Alister McRae is returning to the Adelaide Motorsport Festival, this time on two wheels. McRae will swap four wheels for two wheels by riding a Honda SP1 superbike in the motorbike category at the 2024 Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival on March 16 and 17.

After last appearing at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival in 2018, McRae will join the likes of motorcycle grand prix winners Chris Vermeulen, Kevin Magee and Daryl Beattie on track, in an expanded motorbike category.


McRae is the son of the five-time British rally champion Jimmy McRae and the younger brother of the late 1995 World Rally Championship winner Colin McRae, competing in the World Rally Championship himself between 1991 and 2012.


The motorbike category features a Team Aspar Aprilia ART GP13 grand prix bike ridden by Vermeulen, a Yamaha YZR 500cc two-stroke grand prix bike ridden by Magee and a Honda CB1100R road-legal sports bike ridden by Beattie, alongside Superbikes, production bikes, road bikes and more. 

McRae will also be appearing in the Grand Marquee at 10:45am on Sunday 17 March, alongside Australian rally legend Neal Bates to discuss rally heritage.

Held the week prior to the Australian Grand Prix, the Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival is a museum in motion, displaying historic, rare and significant racing vehicles on the Victoria Park section of the Adelaide Street Circuit. 

Categories featuring Formula 1, V8 Supercars, Group C and A touring cars, sportscars and more will feature over the course of the Repco Adelaide Motorsport Festival, in addition to on-track demonstrations, off-track displays, villas and more.
