Pearson aiming to win Supersport before step up to Superbike
Some would say it has been a long time coming, however with a number of years hampered by serious injuries, it is only now that current Motorsports TV Supersport Championship points leader, Broc Pearson, looks to have found his rhythm and groove in the Championship.
The talented Queenslander is no stranger to battling at the front, however serious injuries in recent years have sidelined his Championship chances, including breaking his back twice and a collar bone break last year.
In 2020 he finished 4th behind Champion Tom Toparis, Oli Bayliss, and Max Stauffer.
In 2021, Pearson is showing the immense talent he has, as he looks to be as one with his City2Surf Locksmith and YRD backed Yamaha YZF R6, smashing lap records on the way to two victories and two second places from the two rounds run this year.
Pearson leads the Supersport Championship seven-points ahead of Tom Edwards, 13-points ahead of Max Stauffer, 28-points in front of Luke Power in 4th, and Dallas Skeer 29-points behind in 5th.
He hasn’t had it all his own way, with the talented Tom Edwards and Max Stauffer both scoring race wins, ensuring Pearson has had to work extremely hard to lead the Championship.
Could this be the year Pearson breaks through for his first Motorsports TV Supersport Championship title win.
“If you don’t want to win the Championship you are not a proper racer. Absolutely I would love to win the Championship, we all want to,” said Pearson.
“That is the big picture, but we are still early in the year, and have a number of rounds to go.
“I need to win as many races as I can. I think I have a good chance, but those other boys aren’t going to count themselves out either.”
