Australian Superbike Championship: Maxwell grabs clean sweep at Mallala

Australian Superbike Championship: Maxwell grabs clean sweep at Mallala

Packed grids for the second round of the Swann Australian Superbike Championship

Team Motul Honda rider Wayne Maxwell has again performed a clean sweep at Mallala in South Australia, to take out the Superbike class at the second round of the 2014 Swann Insurance Australian Superbike Championship.

It was the first time the Swann Superbike Series had been back to Mallala for more than five years, and the racing did not disappoint the healthy crowd in attendance.

Maxwell was a model of consistency over the three races winning all three and catapulting himself into the outright championship lead.

And it was a 1-2 podium finish for Team Honda Racing with Jamie Stauffer claiming second, third and second from his three races to finish second overall on the day.

Both the first and the third race of the day saw extremely close finishes with Maxwell passing Stauffer on the second last lap (race one) and the final corner (race three) to take the sweep.

Yamaha Racing Team’s Robbie Bugden was a consistent performer with his third, fourth and fifth placings enough to earn a spot on the podium in third overall.

Cru Halliday (Yamaha Racing Team) and Troy Herfoss (Team Honda Racing) rounded out the top five.

 

In the overall standings Maxwell has leapt into an eight-point lead over Stauffer, with BikeBiz Racing Kawasaki’s Sean Condon a further 32 points behind in third.

In the Supersport category, Queenslander Callum Spriggs took round honours following his opening race win and second place finish in the second race.

Aaron Morris won the second race of the day, and when paired with his opening race finish of third, was enough to place him in second overall for the round.

Maxima Yamaha rider Aiden Wagner rounded out the overall podium with a second and fourth from his two races.

Local hero Daniel Falzon and New South Welshman Patrick Medcalf finished in fourth and fifth overall respectively.

The round win has consolidated Spriggs’ championship lead, holding a seven-point buffer to Morris, with Wagner a further five points behind in third.

Kyle Buckley took out the Kawasaki Insurances FX 300 Ninja Cup with a clean sweep at the second round, ahead of Brandon Demmery and Paul Young.

In the Kawasaki Ninja FX 250 category, Grant Jordan won both of his races to finish in front of Joshua McHenry and Stuart Green.

Victorian Chris Trounson took 72 of the 75 available points on offer in the Forumla Oz class to take the outright honours while Hudson Pitt edged out Sophie Lovett to take the overall points in the Forumla Oz B-Grade class.

Ryan Hampton won all three races in the Formula Oz C-Grade class while Daniel Parker claimed the round win in the D-Grade class.

Angus Reekie won all three races (as he did at the opening round) to claim top spot in the Nakedbikes – F1 class.

I was there.....Brilliant racing!!

Very drunk day but remember the race. Loved watching Scott race. All packed and ready for Silverstone Thursday morning.

I was there, great finish. Home crowd went wild when Redding got back in front, then deadly silent when Marquez had a look up inside on last bend, then wild again when Redding cut back across. Amazing stuff!

Good. laps .. for redding.. Marquez out...

Very nice

All these guys are big talents. Many riders like Pol Espargaro, Alvaro Bautista, Bradley Smith, Antony West & many more are great riders and capable of winning championships ( capable ). People underestimate these guys by their bad results, but really..top material is key in these classes, especially in the MotoGp class. Give them a solid ride and they'll blow your mind

Great performance by Pol & Scott at the end💪🏼..that was a cracker💥..

Redding never got the ride he deserved.

2019, #93 is the winner..😋🏁

however Mac Marquez with his current performance does not have to be Marquez's best

special suter chassis for marc and mysterious team 😉 after marc step up to motogp, this team directly disappear, nobody know where are they now.

Just shows how good Redding was but never really got the bike to really take it to them in Motogp.

Very cool video MotoGP. More like this one please!!!

Man, I miss Scott Redding in the padock "let's get it babi"

Redding and Iannone can beat Marquez they just don't get competitive bikes

Muy buena carrera no apta para cardíacos 🤭🤭🤭

Forget just how good Redding could have been with a decent bike

MM 93

The dramatic moment which cost Marc Márquez a shot at victory at Silverstone two years ago! 😱

The world champion's misfortune opened the door for Andrea Dovizioso to snatch the win! 💨

Maybe that won’t see this sunday, I’d rather watch all the riders fighting for the victory. ✊🏻🏍

Good Day all.

Encore! Encore! Do it again!

Unlikely to be repeated! Hope Dovi brings his A game though. 👍🏼👍🏼

Gave the rest a chance

So what's new?? Sometimes these kind of technical failures happens in Motorsport... Very rare that engine blow sky high to premier class bike.

I love coming here and waiting for all the Yellow gob smokers.

I thought "the legend" was gonna win that day.. 😅

Was at this race, and that bike blowing up was almost as good as a Rossi win 😀

RAre footage for sure

Ah, I could watch that Honda blow up all day every day...

Cmt giữ chức
