Glen Kearney off to strong start in 2012

Posted:

Husqvarna racings, Glen Kearney has demonstated stong early season form in wet conditions taking victory on his TE 310 from Yamaha's Josh Green, and Husqvarna team mate Luka Bussa, at the opening round of the the Husqvarna Sprint Series, held at Kyogle, Northern New South Wales, on Saturday March 3.

overnight rain on the Friday before the event transformed what was shaping to be a prime course into a challenging and slippery loop. Event organizers were forced to delay Saturdays start time to allow some of the large amount of standing water to dissipate, the late start saw Saturday's event shortened to suit the ordinary conditions.

With several AORC riders taking the option to use the event as a competition debut for their 2012 season race bikes, the event boasted a strong field of riders, giving the Husqvarna racing team riders a chance to put their 2012 TE 310 & TE 250 race bikes into competition, after working hard throughout the off season on setup and development.

"The first round of the Husqvarna Sprint Series was an awesome day of racing for the Husqvarna team." Kearney stated.

"The rain made the track quite difficult for some classes. For us it was a great warm up for the first AORC round where we can expect similar conditions given the widespread rain across the East coast. I really enjoyed the event despite the challenging conditions."

He continued by saying "I am very pleased with the 2012 TE 310 and it worked really well as a race package, the development and setup done in the off season has paid off and I am looking forward to the AORC opening round."

"I would like to thank the event organizers', Paul Feeney Group Husqvarna and our sponsors. My personal thanks to Husqvarna race technicians Joel McMahon and Vic Martin for their efforts to deliver such a competitive race package." he concluded.

Bussa was please how the first outing of the Husqvarna Sprint Series turned out having this to say in regards to the event.

"I had a good time at this event. Everything went smoothly; the track was a challenge due to the rain but the 2012 TE 250 worked great despite the conditions, Joel McMahon and Vic Martin have come up with a very good race package and I am looking forward to a strong result for 2012. I would like to thank Husqvarna, the Paul Feeney Group and the 2012 season sponsors."

Paul Feeney team owner and manger of the Husqvarna racing team thanked his riders for their efforts in the diffcult conditions at round 1

"Special thanks go to Glenn and Luka for the great effort in those difficult conditions. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsor Link International for their continued support and supply of Motul Oils, Pirelli tyres, RK chains, Ferodo pads, JT Sprockets, Polisport products and Excel rims. The excellent result has provided a strong base moving into the AORC opening rounds, this coming weekend. Feeney concluded.
