We took to Morgan Park Raceway for the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) for round 2 of the Championship. Here we take a look at the Superbike category.
Mike Jones put in a stunning lap record in qualifying, the only rider to drop into the 1:15s during the qualifying sessions. He then went in put in 1:15s during the races, dominating the field.
Daniel Falzon would be the best of the rest but couldn’t beat the local knowledge of Jones. He scored dual second place finishes and is confident that he can take the fight to Jones at the next round in Perth.
Chas Hern made it to Morgan Park after scraping enough cash together to race his EBR. He started on the front row and would go onto finish third in race 1. He fell in race two but was able to continue albeit at the back of the field.
The new track that was tight, twisty and bumpy caused a few problems for some riders. This off track excursion was a minor blip for Stephen Benjack
Ashley Fleming on board the Suzuki would have a steady weekend
Phil Czaj on the Aprilla RSV4 would reach his first Superpole and would take a 7th and 6th, making it a great weekend for the squad
Jones, Falzon and Ryan Hampton celebrate a job well done after race 2
Daniel Falzon takes on the champagne.
