2015 Troy Bayliss Classic

A third AMA Pro Flat Track star has been confirmed for the Troy Bayliss Classic set for January 17 in Australia.

The man is 2014 AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Champion Jared Mees, who finished second at another popular worldwide Flat Track event – the Superprestigio, which was won by two-time MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez.

Mees, a two-time Flat Track Champion (2012/2014), will receive support from Brisbane Motorcycles Honda.

“I’m looking forward to racing the Troy Bayliss Classic,” Mees said. “It’s something I have had my eye on and always wanted to try out. I did my first race outside of America at the Superprestigo in Spain recently and look forward to racing Troy and the others in January in Australia.

Three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss – a name synonymous with Ducati in racing – also commented on Mees appearance at the classic.

“Jared is the current American Grand Nation Champion, he was so close to winning the Superprestio running a very close second to Marc Marquez. I am really look forward to banging bars with him at the Classic.

“This event just keeps on growing and having Jared, Sammy Halbert and Henry Wiles here is the same as having the top three Nascar drivers here for a V8 race.

“We are continuing to improve the event and this year to make it more enjoyable for the whole family we will start the Troy Bayliss Classic racing program at 1 p.m.,” Bayliss advised.

Mees joins two other Americans at the popular flat track event – Sammy Halbert and Brad Baker.

Tickets for the January 17 event are on sale now HERE. Anyone who purchases tickets before Christmas Eve will go into the draw to win a two-up ride with Troy Bayliss.

Brisbane motorcycle enthusiasts will have the opportunity to meet Jared Mees and Troy Bayliss at Brisbane Motorcycles between 1 and 3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9.
