It was a frustrating round of the Australian Superbike Championship for the Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team at Barbagallo Raceway, with both riders Troy Herfoss and Jamie Stauffer showing impressive form, however missing out on the overall podium in Western Australia over the weekend.
Despite some challenges across the three-day event, Herfoss was fast throughout practice and qualifying at Barbagallo, and when racing kicked off, Herfoss holeshoted both races, and then steered his CBR1000RRSP Honda machine to 4th and 5th placed finishes, concluding the round in 5th overall. Stauffer, who got to a slower start at Barbagallo Raceway, took 9th in race one and 8th in race two, handing the team 8th overall.
Herfoss shared that despite the weekend‰Ûªs challenges, he achieved personal goals at Round 4, and is looking ahead to Morgan Park already.
