2019 ASBK Superbike championship

Postby Mikesbytes on Fri Feb 22, 2019 4:55 am

As part of the WSBK at Phillip Island this weekend there's the ASBK Superbike championships. The first race hasn't happened and there's drama already;
- Troy Herfoss the 2018 champion was hoping to bring attention to himself from the WSBK crowd by doing well at the WSBK test only to have technical problems that left him way off the pace. After FP2 he is in 4th place on combined results
- Troy Bayliss had a problem with traffic in FP2 and had a big off. He has broken a finger but has been cleared to race. He is 2nd on combined results due to his FP1 time
- If you wanted to know how difficult it is to race down under, have a look at Aiden Wagner's photo in the link following, he is 1st on combined practice results and there's not a single piece of marketing on his bike or leathers. http://www.mcnews.com.au/aiden-wagner-signals-intent-with-1m32-320-bayliss-down/

That was some great racing from the asbk lads. Pity that Bayliss got injured, though.

A bit off topic, but here's the classic racing for PI on the weekend, it was Aus vs US vs NZ. The list of bikes is interesting

For those in Australia all of the rounds apart from the first one are on free to air on SBS, which probably means that those overseas will be able to watch it on SBS on demand at a later time or possibly via live streaming if you can get it to work at your location

Round 1: Phillip Island (23-24 February) (Fox Sports)
Round 2: Wakefield Park (24 March) (SBS, Fox Sports)
Round 3: The Bend (28 April) (SBS, Fox Sports)
Round 4: Morgan Park (7 July) (SBS, Fox Sports)
Round 5: Winton (8 September) (SBS, Fox Sports)
Round 6: Phillip Island (6 October) (SBS, Fox Sports)
Round 7: Sydney Motorsport Park (1 November) (SBS, Fox Sports)

Bayliss is out for round two, still injured from round one, Mike Jones will be on his bike. https://www.mcnews.com.au/mike-jones-to-sub-for-bayliss-at-wakefield-park-asbk/. Apparently Mike Jones doesn't have a ride for 2019, I'm a little surprised at that as he's a decent rider.

Also what's interesting is that Mike Jones will be on the 2018 Ducati twin, so that means that they sorted out the 2019 V4 Ducati yet. What's happening with the Ducati V4 at other national series?
