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.

Prayer for eternal life. “Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”

Strap yourselves in - it's our top 10 onboard clips of 2019! 👀 🍿 🙂 ... See Less

Awesome opening lap from George Russell, now let’s just get him in a quicker car.

When you watch clips like this you realize just how crazy fast and how close together they really are , and even worse when they are driving hard in the rain !!! Mad respect to all of the F1 drivers !!!

I abaolutly Love how Stroll is complaning about Vettel coming back very dangerously and in the same second he does the same to the Torro Rosso😂

The middle of the pack, that's where most of the racing takes place. Excellent choice for the No.1 clip.

What a nice thumbnail, Max ruining Kimi's race at Spa...

Hulkenberg’s first lap at Bahrain was incredible, more impressive than a lot on this list!

And leclerc overtaking verstappen in Silverstone?? Where is? 🙄 instead of putting giovinazzi's crash in SPA

Russell's was probably the most impressive.

With all the technology available, there should be a means of switching from the Sky Sports main channel to on board channels to follow any/all of the drivers at any time, or for the entire race. I.e. Go to your fave driver and ride with him the whole way, or switch around, and/or go to the middle of the pack and pick up on a duel or two. It would really make F1 much more exciting ... pay per view on each driver?

You can feel the pain of Giovanazzi's crash!

Position 1 Is awesome! Excellent choice

Where is the drag race between Hamilton and Gasly for the podium? 🤓🤔

I'm really a big fan of George. This kid ha a potential to be like Lewis

That Silverstone battle was top notch and shows the difference between Bottas and Rosberg. Body work everywhere if it was the German no doubt and the ‘racing’ not so good

The Russell clip is a real eye-opener for what he could achieve in a competitive car

how come there was no talk about George Russel"s moves in Hungary?

Some great races this season. Germany, Silverstone and Brazil were incredible!

Unforgettable how stroll complaining about vettel’s entering dangerously into the track while entering himself dangerously into the track.

Wow.. I didnt think I ever saw the Singapore clip. How awesome is that, 4 cars battling in that street circuit

Holy Russell at Hungarian GP!

On board with Halo, play station F1, very close to Formula E. Thanks God this year the stewards leted race them, at least to the top ones.

Racing Point used turbo in Bahrain 🤣

Vettel .. 1 video 2 spins and two disasters .. thank you F1 for summarizing Vettel's season 🙉🙉🙉

I still don't understand what Max was trying to do with that lunge start at Spa and then asking what Kimi's doing?

Where's the onboard with vettel & leclerc in Brasil? 😅
