Matt Walters wraps up 2013 ASBK Prostock Championship

Posted:

Kawasaki racer Matt Walters has wrapped up the 2013 Australian Superbike Championship Prostock class in outstanding fashion winning all 3 races at the penultimate round in Darwin, NT to win his second Australian road racing championship.

Walters‰Ûª speed was extremely impressive in Darwin with the 20 year old setting a new lap record in qualifying to take pole. He then continuously broke his own lap record in each successive race on board his Ninja ZX-10R, finishing no less than 5 seconds ahead of his closest competitor in each race.

Matt Walters has won every race of the championship so far bar one (where he finished in 2nd place). The 2013 ASBK Prostock Championship marks Walters‰Ûª second Australian championship victory to date after he won the ASBK 600cc Superstock Championship in 2010.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R machinery took all podium places in the final race of the round with Dustin Goldsmith and Ben Burke finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively. The Ninja ZX-10R is clearly the number 1 bike of choice for riders in the Prostock class with 7 of the top 10 riders on board the model.

Matt Walters was extremely happy to wrap up the championship with a round to go, saying, ‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been a perfect year and I‰Ûªm very happy to win the Australian championship. It‰Ûªs taken a few years to win the title on the ZX-10R after winning the 600 title in 2010 and the feeling is great.

"The Ninja ZX-10R did everything that was asked of it in Darwin and we had a perfect weekend. I‰Ûªd really like to thank Kawasaki Australia, Rover Coaches, Alpinestar boots, RST Leathers, Bell Helmets and last but not least, my mum and dad at Kawasaki Connection for all of their support.‰Û
