Glenn Allerton maintains ASBK Championship lead with 2nd place at Queensland Raceway

Posted:

Glenn Allerton, riding the Dynotech Maxima BMW HP4, has completed a successful weekend in Round 3 of the QBE Australian Superbike Championship held at Queensland Raceway.

The BMW rider was the quickest man in practice, took out Superpole and followed it up with a victory in Race 1.

During the Race 2 warm-up lap Allerton had a small technical problem and had to start at the rear of the grid on the spare BMW HP4. He blasted his way through the field and at the end of the first lap was in 4th position. The rapid lap took a toll on the front brake and with an eye for the safety of fellow riders remained in that position.

"That is the one that got away," Allerton stated. "I had a problem with the ECU on the warm-up lap, which couldn't be fixed in the five-minute window that you have so I had to go to the spare bike.

"I had such a big go at the start, I ended up over doing it on the front brake so in the end I had to give the boys some room as I didn't want to run into the back of them.

"We have the best package going at the moment and I am going to go into Round 4 at Sydney Motorsport Park (Eastern Creek) like a bull at a gate as it is my home event" said Allerton," he added.

BMW Motorrad Australia and New Zealand, general manager, Tony Sesto, was pleased with Allerton's weekend.

"Glenn had a fantastic weekend with the BMW HP4 showing its amazing capabilities. The technical problem stopped Glenn from achieving maximum points but to win Race 1 and lead the Championship is a great effort." Sesto commented.

Allertons second place overall finish sees him maintain his championship lead in the Australian Superbike Championship.
