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 here is our Supersport gallery.

Our coverage to date includes the ASBK gallery, interviews with Josh Waters, Aaron Steer and James Winslow.

The race in brief
Mitchell Carr claimed Triumph’s first-ever Motul Australian Supersport Championship crown in a drama-filled day for the class.

The 24-year-old entered the event with a half-point lead, but lost the advantage by a point yesterday when Team Suzuki’s Brodie Waters trumped him for pole position.

The day’s opening race saw Carr, Waters and Honda rider Josh Hook engage in a spirited battle, with the lead swapping on a lap-by-lap basis.

Carr’s strengths were in the straights, with his Triumph 675 pulling away from the factory Suzuki and factory Honda out of the corners.

In a sudden the title hopes of Hook and Waters were dashed, suffering separate issues within seconds of each other at the end of lap 13.

Hook ran on at turn 6, a gearbox problem ending his race, while Waters lasted just a few hundred metres more before a cloud of smoke began trailing from his Suzuki on the front straight.

Neither were classified finishers, and Carr, the race winner by over 5 seconds, found himself back in charge of the Championship by a considerable margin.

The Triumph rider stayed clear of a ferocious four-rider battle in the second race which went the way of a resurgent Hook.

It moved the Honda rider to second and turned the spotlight to the arm wrestle between Waters and Glenn Scott.
