A weekend gallery of the ASBK class from Queensland Raceway


The ASBK was back in action over the weekend with the third weekend of the series – though second round for most classes.  The riders took on the Queensland Raceway circuit.  We have a lot of content coming your way and to kick it off, here is a gallery of the Superbike class.


The pitlane was intense during SuperPole. There were moments of serene chaos – it was quiet, no bikes on track but the people were racing around


It would be Glenn Allerton on board the BMW who would take the top spot


The start to the first race – a race that Allerton would dominate


Allerton takes the applause of the crowd on the front straight after his commanding race 1 win, race 2 would not be so kind. ECU problems on the grid forced him to start on his spare bike from pit lane.  He then ran out of front brakes in the race and did well to salvage fourth


Robbie Budgen was making the most of his Suzuki over the weekend – taking a race one podium, which helped him to the round victory

The race in brief

Brisbane rider Robbie Bugden has won the third round of the QBE Australian Superbike Championship at Queensland Raceway today.

The Volvo Trucks Suzuki rider won the dramatic final 17-lap Superbike race ahead of teammate Wayne Maxwell and Team Honda Racing’s Josh Hook.

The round win is Bugden’s first in the premier class and he said he was thrilled to achieve it at his home event.

“The weekend turned out better than I had hoped to be honest,” Bugden said. “We have been building momentum ever since the test and today we proved the Suzuki is every bit as good as any bike out there.

“To take the race and round win at my home track, in front of my friends and family is something I will remember for a long time.”

Championship leader Glenn Allerton won the opening race of the day but a problem the ECU on the #14 HP41000 R saw him start the race on his spare bike and from the rear of the grid.

The NextGen Motorsports rider, who stormed through the field to sit fourth at the end of the opening lap, looked poised to strike the top three but was forced to back off when he ran out of front brake.

Allerton finished the round second, tied on points with Bugden and retains his lead in the QBE Australian Superbike Championship.
