Glenn Allerton On Top In Queensland

Troy Herfoss Maintains Narrow Championship Lead

Posted:

Glenn Allerton burst through for his first round win of the 2015 Australasian Superbike Championship and made it three round wins in a row for the Yamaha Racing Team in an action packed fourth round at Queensland Raceway over the weekend.

Allerton hit the QR circuit in top form right from the first lap of practice and charged his way to race wins during the FX Nationals on Saturday. With his confidence on the rise, Allerton was all set for a huge return to form when racing got underway on Sunday.

Allerton led a Yamaha freight train during the opening race of round four. Locked in a tight battle with teammate and previous round winner, Cru Halliday, the pair raced away from the rest of the pack as they went bar to bar for the 16 lap event.

Allerton fought all the way to the finish to take victory, shadowed by Halliday. In third was Wayne Maxwell making it an all Yamaha podium for race one.

Race two got underway and it was shaping up to be carbon copy of race one with Allerton and Halliday in control and fighting over the lead. As the field completed 10 laps, Halliday fell heavily from his bike and lay motionless on the track forcing the race to be stopped. Thankfully, the concussed Halliday was ok and the race was restarted as Cru was taken away for observation.

Due to a rule technicality, the YRT riders of Allerton and Maxwell were forced to start in pit lane and had to fight their way forward once the race began.

Together, the sliced their way through the pack to end up in fifth and sixth respectively though on adjusted times finished the race in 2nd and 3rd respectively, while Kawasaki privateer Mike Jones lead the field home in race two after crashing out of the opening rance

Allerton‰Ûªs 1-2 results gave him the overall round victory, his first on the new R1 and since he joined Yamaha in 2015. Allerton now moves into third in the championship standings.

‰ÛÏNo doubt it was a relief to finally ride the way I should and get the results both the team and myself expect. Race one Cru and I had a good battle going and I was able to slip by him when he went in too deep on turn three. The wind was really tricky today and made braking difficult and I think it got Cru out a bit then,‰Û
