“Being my home round I will be able to carry some home track advantage going into this weekend, which is always good to have, as I know the track really well,” Spriggs commented. “I should be able to do some fast times, but in saying that, I just have to stay consistent.
“In regards to being a home round, it’s always nice to have friends and family coming out to support you, which revs you up a bit more I suppose. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the weekend goes.
“In terms on the championship, I know its crunch time, so I have to try and stay ahead of Sam [Clarke] and Troy [Guenther]. My main goal is to win, but at the same time I have to make sure I bring home as many points as I can and stay in front of the main two guys in the title fight and hopefully take the fight to Winton in October.”
Supersport rookie Menzies has steadily been gaining experience and momentum this season under the Cube Racing banner alongside Spriggs, buoyed by his outright speed and is determined to finish off the season with some consistently strong results. He sits ninth in the point standings.
“I’m really looking forward to this weekend,” Menzies said. “We came out here a few weeks ago and tested, which was pretty positive for the team. It was my first time at Morgan Park, so I really wanted to try and get my head around the circuit.
“We have the Cube Racing ZX-6R set up pretty well from the test, which is a positive thing entering any round. Ideally I would like to finish inside the top 10 this weekend, but as close to the front as possible would be fantastic.”
