RacerViews was at Queensland Raceway for the season final of the Australian Superbike Championship.  We have a lot of coverage to bring to you and we start with our gallery of the main game – the Superbikes.

The race in brief

Team Suzuki’s Josh Waters has clinched his second QBE Australian Superbike Championship with a measured and mature ride at Queensland Raceway today.

The 25-year-old becomes just the sixth rider in the sport’s history to record multiple Championship wins, both coming with Suzuki.

The Victorian rider was dominant early in the season, winning four races in quick succession and making his mark with a string of consistent podiums.

He came to Queensland Raceway with a 19.5-point lead and chose to maintain the necessary advantage rather than attempt to race wheel-to-wheel with outright pacesetter and round winner Jamie Stauffer.

Waters finished this morning’s race in fourth and was a comfortable sixth this afternoon to seal the title by 13.5 points over Team Honda’s Wayne Maxwell.

The elation was evident for Waters who has not campaigned a full season since his rookie year in 2009.

“It’s just great to make it official, I can’t thank the team enough for everything they’ve done and preparing a bike that I love to ride,” said Waters.

“It’s not been my best track and I knew I would have to be careful, I couldn’t match it with Jamie (Stauffer) today but for me it was more about just getting two consistent race finishes.”
