Gallery: Day 1 Action from the WorldSBK at Phillip Island


Leonard Smith is at the Island for the first round of the World Superbike Championship and took some photos for us…

The weather was up and down on Day 1 Down Under at the Yamaha Finance Australian Round, but Milwaukee Aprilia’s Lorenzo Savadori and Eugene Laverty got up front and stayed there to lead the charge to Tissot-Superpole 2 – only separated by Leon Camier (Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team). It’s a return to frontrunning ways for both the team and Noale marque Aprilia, after a more difficult year in 2017.
