We talk to BMW’s Glenn Allerton after a rapid ASBK weekend



Glenn Allerton accepts the applause of the crowd after his race 1 win

In our continuing coverage following the QBE Australian Superbike Championship round at Queensland Raceway we catch up with race 1 winner, Glenn Allerton.

Allerton, on board the NextGen Motorsports BMW HP4 took pole position by just 0.02 of a second after a frantic SuperPole session.  He would go onto dominate race 1, winning comfortably from Robbie Bugden.

Race 2, however was very different for Allerton.  An ECU problem on the grid forced Allerton to start on his spare bike from the back of the grid.  Without an opportunity to tune the bike, it was always going to be an uphill battle.  He fought through early with brave overtaking moves and was in fourth in the first couple of laps.

His hard riding on the spare bike would catch up with him as he ran out of front brakes mid way through the race.  To his absolute credit, he held onto fourth, taking second overall for the round.

He now leads the Championship with 94 points, from Wayne Maxwell who is on 80 points.
