The Penrite Factory Honda Race Team have kicked off their 2018 Australian Supercross campaign with strong results from all riders.

Justin Brayton came out on top in the SX1 ahead of his teammate Brett Metcalfe who finished 2nd. The reigning Champion was pleased with his opening round results.

‰ÛÏOverall the day went well. We qualified 1st and won our heat race. I knew Metty would be strong after we tested together during the week and I am extremely happy we took 1st and 2nd in the 450 main for Penrite Honda,‰Û

Brett Metcalfe also had a very positive opening round, winning heat 1 and staying competitive in all sessions. Agreeing with Brayton, Metcalfe also commented on the patients required to tackle the track, which deteriorated throughout the day. In the final Metcalfe led until he stalled the motor and cost him precious seconds. He ultimately claimed 2nd overall.

‰ÛÏI am so happy with the bike and the team. I made a small mistake in the final, I am not sure if I would have held Justin off but that seriously doesn‰Ûªt matter, I am extremely happy with how I am riding and had so much fun racing Supercross again. It‰Ûªs been a few a years between Supercross races,‰Û

The teams SX2 entrant, Bradley Taft took victory in his heat race and claimed 2nd overall in the 15 lap main event. This is his first time in Australia and he was content with his overall performance.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been a crazy week, settling in, testing a new bike and finding some consistency in my day to day training. I have never left America so this is all new to me. Whilst I am happy with the points we scored, I believe we can improve on 2nd for round 2. Now we have 3 weeks to prepare for the next round and the team and I will work on some thing‰Ûªs to improve our position,‰Û
