It's on ! fingers crossed.

Round 1 at Phillip island has been postponed.

Racing this weekend at Winton in northern Victoria. They are calling it round 2, but this is the first round to actually run.
Qualifying results from yesterday. https://www.roadracingworld.com/news/au ... at-winton/

The two-time champions are on the first row. Arthur Sissis & Lachlan Epis closer to the front, they are improving.
Ollie Bayliss making the step up from 600 supersport to Superbike, doing well also.

Troy Herfoss likes the new fireblade. He will be a favorite for the title.

Racing ( and jive ) will be broadcast on SBS today 14th March, from midday on the east coast of Oz. Some coverage will be live.

Other than the P.I. round being postponed, Motorcycling Australia still planning to do seven rounds including the Northern territory and Tasmania.
I had a look at Symmons Plains again while I was in Tassie. It is good in parts. the FAST right hand sweeper after the hairpin, that is a corner!

I'm hoping Mike Jones & Wayne Maxwell will do good on the Ducatis. Herfoss will likely win at least one race today on the new Honda.

It's up on youtube https://youtu.be/G7J5DXjrh3Q

Edit: there's a part 2 to the video. Race 1 of the superbikes is repeated at the beginning and race 2 is somewhere in the middle https://youtu.be/g5qEjLeUuRs

Not bad at all those races. Championship wise its looking like a 2 rider race but it could become a 3 rider race
