Lovett On FX300 Podium – Carr Wins Formula Oz Class At 5th Round Of Australasian Superbike Championship
Kawasaki riders enjoyed a successful 5th round of the 2014 Swann Insurances Australasian Superbike Championship at Wakefield Park, NSW over the weekend.

Sophie Lovett rounded out the podium in the Kawasaki Insurances FX300 Ninja Cup class while Brayden Carr won the Formula Oz class on his Ninja ZX-10R.

Although she leads the Women's class comfortably in the Kawasaki Insurances FX300 Ninja Cup, the 5th round at Wakefield Park was momentous for Kawasaki's Sophie Lovett as she was able to achieve an outright podium finish by taking 3rd place.

The round was won by Kyle Buckley who leads the series by a narrow 2 point margin over Brandon Demmery who finished the round in 2nd place. Sophie Lovett sits in 3rd place outright in the series after 3-4-5 race finishes on board her Ninja 300 at Wakefield Park.

"I'm so happy to finish on the podium amongst a field of mostly male riders," an excited Sophie Lovett said, "The Ninja 300 performed flawlessly once again and I'm looking for another strong result at Eastern Creek in November to finish the series off on a high note."

Acclaimed motorcycle journalist Rennie Scaysbrook was the guest wildcard rider for the Kawasaki Motors Finance Ninja 300 at round 5 and he was on the pace from the get-go with a 3rd place race finish during Saturday's non-championship races.

A crash would put him out of the mix in Sunday's first points scoring race however he bounced back to take 5th place and 4th place respectively over the remaining two races.

Kawasaki riders took two podium positions in the Formula Oz class thanks to Brayden Carr and Matthew Harding. Carr seized two race wins on board his Ninja ZX-10R at Wakefield Park on his way to the top step of the podium (2-1-1) while Matthew Harding finished in 3rd place overall with 5-4-2 results.

Kawasaki were well represented in the Superbike class thanks to Sean Condon and the defending champion and #1 plated Matt Walters however the high power output of the Ninja ZX-10R Superbike engines was never going to be suited to the tight Wakefield Park circuit and this showed in the riders results.

Sean Condon finished in 10th overall with 11-10-10 results while Matt Walters finished in 11th overall with 9-9-13 finishes. Mike Jones took 8th place with 8-8-5 results.

Kawasaki riders are looking forward to the 6th and final round of the 2014 Swann Insurances Australasian Superbike Championship which will take place at Sydney Motorsports Park at Eastern Creek on 21-23 November.
