The Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit provided all of the goods today, with riders given the opportunity to stretch their legs at the Australian Superbike Test Day, ahead of the upcoming rounds of the World Superbike Championship and Australian Superbike Championship on February 26-28, 2016.
In what were perfect riding conditions, close to 30 riders took full advantage of the track time, allowing some of Australia‰Ûªs fastest Superbike and Supersport competitors to gain valuable experience on what is known as one of Australia‰Ûªs fastest racing circuits, Phillip Island.
Crankt Protein Honda Racing‰Ûªs Jamie Stauffer, showed impressive form today topping the overall Superbike test times with a lap time of 1.33.546.
"I am getting use to being back on a bike again, just trying to get back into the swing of things. I think the bike is pretty good for the first round in a couple of weeks time. We just have to keep getting out there and doing laps, hopefully moving forward," he said.
"It was good conditions today there was not much wind. Around half way through the day we got a couple of sprinkles around the track but it wasn‰Ûªt too bad."
Close in toe was ASBK defending champion Mike Jones on his Desmo Sport Ducati machine with a lap of 1.33.738 in the last session of the day.
