2019 Motul Pirelli Australian Superbike Championship

Winton – Round Five – Friday Practice

Things are tight at the top ahead of this weekend’s fifth round of the Australian Superbike Championship. Less than 30-points currently separate the top six in the championship with Mike Jones leading Cru Halliday by a single point.

After the conclusion of this weekend there will be only two rounds remaining and this fifth round will make or break the championship aspirations of a few of the prime contenders.

First practice this morning saw the heavens open just prior to the 1040 start time. As a result most of the field kept themselves and their powder dry for the remaining 2 x 30-minute sessions this afternoon. Only Bryan Staring and Lachlan Epis bothered to head out to get wet in the deluge, and both ended up crashing in the sketchy conditions.

Things were dry early in the afternoon for the second session and this time around the Superbike field got down to business proper/ They knew that there was chance that this could be the only dry track time they would get before Sunday’s 2 x 16-lap races.

Troy Herfoss was quick out of the blocks as was Cru Halliday and Wayne Maxwell.

Ultimately it was the #47 that ended the session on top with a 1m21.499s today’s benchmark.

Halliday’s quickest time of 1m21.724s came on the final of his 17 laps during the session to displace Herfoss from that second spot on the leader-board.

Mike Jones was the only other rider in the 21s and had more than half-a-second on fifth placed Josh Waters.

Alex Phillis pretty much destroyed a GSX-R1000R today, he is fine but his wallet took a hefty impact… 

Alex Phillis Crash Winton
An expensive afternoon for Alex Phillis…

A heavy shower then completely soaked the entire Winton venue ahead of the third and final practice session of the day. Even if riders get back on track late this afternoon none of them are going to better the times set in FP2.
