Mike Jones Secures The Opening ASBK Superpole of 2015

Posted:

Local hero Mike Jones (Cube Racing Team) has left tongues wagging at Morgan Park in Queensland, blitzing the field in the Superbike Qualifying and Superpole sessions at the 2015 Yamaha Motor Finance ASBK Championship presented by Motul Pirelli.

Jones posted a Qualifying lap record at the venue of 1:15.368 to finish in the front spot on the grid ahead of Daniel Falzon (JD Racing) and Chas Hern (Chas Hern Racing)

In the Supersport class it was New South Welshman Brayden Elliott ‰ÛÒ needing only eight laps in the two, half-hour qualifying session to secure pole from Troy Guenther and Thyron Van Vuuren.

Both Jones and Elliott walked away with the Pirelli Superpole Awards for their efforts ‰ÛÒ a brand new pair of Pirelli tyres in the bank ahead of Sunday‰Ûªs racing action.

On the fourth lap of the opening qualifying session, Jones smoked around in a 1:16.134 ‰ÛÒ his fastest time for the weekend to again highlight his favouritism this round.

‰ÛÏWe have been making progress all weekend, and the Australian Outdoor Living Cube Racing Team have been doing a wonderful job and even though it is my home track, we are always working hard and making changes." Jones explained.

‰ÛÏLap times from yesterday and this morning have dropped significantly and that‰Ûªs just a combination of my riding and the bike working well and the Pirelli tyres which is fantastic.

"I am stoked with the lap time ‰ÛÒ obviously I am pretty happy. I didn‰Ûªt know if it was possible to go that fast but I am very happy with how it went.

‰ÛÏI think that once I get out there in the racing ‰ÛÒ they are 14-lap races so I will be able to settle into a groove and get comfortable and when I am comfortable that‰Ûªs when I go my fastest, so I think that there is possibly a little bit more room in the tank but we will wait for tomorrow and see how we go.

‰ÛÏPirelli offer magnificent support to myself and the Australian Outdoor Living Cube Racing Team. We are really happy to have that support because it is such a great product the Pirelli tyre ‰ÛÒ a very high performance product and they are the best tyre to be on.

‰ÛÏThe Pirelli Superpole Award is a good incentive for us and the other guys that are out there to win a set of tyres and I thing that it‰Ûªs a really good thing.‰Û
