Gobert Motorsports Yamaha's Aaron Gobert finished in third place on the podium at Symmons Plains Raceway in Tasmania on 13-14 November, clinching fourth in the InsureMyRide Australian Supersport Championship for season 2010.

The season finale marked a breakthrough of sorts for the experienced international star, qualifying his Yamaha YZF-R6 on the front row during Saturday morning's qualifying session before going on to finish the opening race of the weekend in fourth after leading early on in dry conditions at the two-plus-four event alongside the V8 Supercars Championship Series.

Sunday's second and final race of the weekend saw Gobert again lead in the early laps after a thrilling dice with newly crowned champion Troy Herfoss in the rain, before vision difficulty in treacherous conditions forced him to settle for third to round out the weekend.

"The weekend has gone really well and it's great to get the Gobert Motorsports Yamaha on the podium overall to round out the season here in Tasmania," Gobert, a former AMA champion in the U.S, commented.

"We lead both races after qualifying on the front row, so it's been a really positive finish to the year for us. We've worked hard all year, so to finish 2010 on the podium means a lot and I really appreciate the support that I've been given this year."

The result clinched Gobert a well deserved third overall for the round, his first overall podium of the season in his first year contesting the Australian series after a successful career in the United States from 2001-2009.

Following a consistent season, Gobert completed the year fourth in the national Supersport championship, also claiming third overall in the Privateer Cup after an 11th-hour decision was made to contest the series just weeks out from the season opener in February.
