An ad for the 1981 ABC Wide World of Sports Superbikers event at Carlsbad. The Superbikers brought together the top riders from each genre of motorcycle racing to compete against one another on a track that consisted of pavement, flat track and motocross sections. In the days when motorcycle racing was rare on network TV, the Superbikers was a big deal and the manufacturers poured a lot of money into making special racing bikes just for this nationally televised race. Superbikers ran from 1979 to 1985 and was the inspiration for modern day Supermoto racing. Steve Wise won the 1981 race over Graham Noyce and Eddie Lawson. It marked the second straight year that Wise took victory on a factory Honda. If you can read the smaller print on the ad check out the price for tickets – $9 for adults, $5 for children.
