BCperformance‰Ûªs Burke and Hughes finish on a high

Posted:

The ASBK championship finale at Phillip Island saw BCperformance riders Ben Burke and Joel Hughes pull off some excellent results last weekend to finish the season on a high.

Victoria's?Phillip Island is notorious for its erratic weather patterns and the 7th and final round of the ASBK championship did not dissapoint. Over three days of on-track action, the new look A1 Motorcycles by the BCperformance race team gained some vaulable experience by entering into the Superbike category for the first time.

Also making his debut in the headlining Superbike class, Ben Burke put in a sterling effort to post the 11th fastest time in qualifying with a first outing in Superpole for the team and rider. Hampered by a lack of setup time around the fast sweeping circuit, Burke could not get his Kawasaki ZX-10R around the island faster but consolidated the 11th ?place to start the Sunday‰Ûªs races from the fourth row.

Burke finished 8th overall for the round and 3rd privateer during his first attempt in the Superbike class.

‰ÛÏI came into the round without any real expectations, being my first time in the Superbike class, I just wanted to feel my way through‰Û
