Broc Parkes Crowned 2013 FX Superbike Champion
Yamaha Racing with Yamalube‰Ûªs Broc Parkes has won the 2013 FX Australasian Superbike Championship after the series was wrapped up over the weekend at Sydney‰Ûªs Motorsport Park.

On board his Yamaha R1, Parkes lead the field into the final double header weekend rounds but still needed a solid showing to lock down the championship.

Saturday‰Ûªs racing saw Parkes return 3-1-3 finishes in the three races and keep a grip on his comfortable points‰Ûª gap back to second place. All that separated him from the 2013 FX Superbike championship were three well- constructed races on Sunday.

Again, he delivered and with 3-3-1 results, he tied on points for the round with Yamaha stable mate Rick Olson and claimed the 2013 Australasian FX Superbike championship on his Yamaha Racing with Yamalube R1. In fact, he did it with a race to spare and the win in the final race was just the icing on the cake for a great return season to Australia for Parkes.

It was some close and hard fought racing in the Superbike class that had four or five riders in contention for race wins it made for a more satisfying victory for Parkes.

‰ÛÏMy year started a little slow but the last few rounds have gone really well and I‰Ûªm proud to have won this championship,‰Û

YRT with Yamalube team mate Cru Halliday also had a consistent weekend contesting the FX600cc division. Halliday racked up three second place finishes in the three races contested but the battle on the track between Halliday and Rick Olson was intense as the pair couldn‰Ûªt separate themselves.

Halliday shaded Olson in every race and was within thousandths of a second at the end of each race making it some of the most exciting racing of the weekend.

Halliday maintains his second place in the championship chase, 44 points behind Olson and with 75 points on offer at the final round, it is mathematically possible for Halliday to pinch an unlikely championship win if things fall his way.

‰ÛÏToday was good and racing with Rick was really close." Halliday stated. "I just couldn‰Ûªt find a way past or make it stick but I made him work for it all the way so he deserved his win.

"We have one round to go, so I guess my goal is to try and win the final round, get as many points as I can and finish the season on a strong note,‰Û
