We were at Queensland Raceway over the weekend for the Australian Superbike Championship. Our third gallery for the weekend is the main support category – the Superstock category. We will have more interviews and pictures from the support categories over the next few days.

Chas Hern led home the field in the Honda Prostock Championship taking the round win ahead of Linden Magee and Ben Nicolson.
A series of crashes cut short a dramatic day of racing in the Motul Australian Supersport Championship, with Brodie Waters emerging the victor despite crashing out of the second race.
Yamaha’s Glenn Scott gapped the field to convert his pole position to a win in the opening race, heading home Triumph rider and points leader Mitchell Carr.
Team Suzuki’s Brodie Waters battled back from seventh on the grid to claim third ahead of Hook and local favourite Brendan Clarke.
The second race was red-flagged after a turn 1 crash involving Yamaha rider Mike Jones, with the field resetting to their original grid positions for a full re-start.
Scott took the lead and began to stretch his legs again, unaware of a championship-changing crash behind him involving Mitchell Carr.
Carr came unstuck at the tricky turn 5 and was forced to wait out the rest of the race on the in-field.
The damage to his title charge was minimised when Waters and Scott crashed heavily into the turn 1 sandtrap, resulting in a red-flag and the early declaration of the race.
Hook was awarded the win and half points, but a post-race protest saw Waters re-instated as race winner.
Carr leaves Queensland Raceway with a lead of just 4.5 points over Hook, with Waters still in check just 8 points further behind.
Daniel Falzon won a closely-contested Suzuki Superstock weekend ahead of local riders Callum Spriggs and Brad Gross.
