Maxwell quickest as first ASBK practice sessions get underway at the Island

Posted:

There is no doubt that Phillip Island knows how to turn on the weather, and looking gloriously sunny for a Thursday, the circuit turned it up today, as Round 1 of the Yamaha Motor Finance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul Pirelli began to get underway.

After setting up in the sunshine this morning, the bikes were out, and the athletes got to stretch their legs for the first official ‰Û÷Free Practice 1‰Ûª for Round 1 of the ASBK, running alongside the World Superbike Championship at Phillip Island this weekend.

First out on track today, Team Yamaha‰Ûªs Wayne Maxwell was all smiles as he stepped off his Yamaha R1 after the Superbike Free Practice session, Maxwell topping the times with a 1:33:964, was closely followed by fellow Yamaha team mate b (1:34.094) and rival Crankt Protien Honda racing duo Jamie Stauffer (1:34.205) and Troy Herfoss (1:34.345).

Maxwell was no doubt impressed after a few months off the bike, especially with the hard work the Yamaha team had put in, in order to setup the bike for the fast paced Phillip Island.

‰ÛÏI owe full credit to the team at Yamaha. The bike was good straight off, it‰Ûªs a good way to start the weekend‰Ûªs proceedings at the top of the time sheets,‰Û
