About Newton's Nation
Welcome to our Newtons!!!
It all started on Mt Panorama in 2008 with Newtons Playground, one of the biggest music sports festivals Australia has seen.
It was backed up in 2009 with the IGSA World Championships, the first and only time the world championships have been run in Australia.
In 2010 the name was changed to Newtons Nation, and once again music and sport collided on Mt Panorama. The festival continued in 2011 through to 2013.
By 2013 it was sports only, and ASRA ran a dual World Cup races on Mt Panorama and Mt Keira.
After a brief hiatus ASRA brought World Cup racing back to Australia with the 2016 Mt Keira IDF World Cup. It was a successful event.
Competitors around the world demanded we go back to Bathurst and in 2017 Newtons has been brought back and once again World Cup downhill racing will be on Mt Panorama.
Special thanks for Tom Thumb for letting us revive the Newtons Nation website and use the Newtons Nation name once more.
Huge thank you to Bathurst Council for belieiving in the future of downhill racing on Mt Panorama.
Newtons 2017 is the IDF Downhill World Cup. There is no BMX and other sports in 2017, just pure downhill racing.
The 2017 event will be FREE for spectators. There will be volunteers asking for a gold coin donation, this is optional.
