Perfect Weekend For Ben Burke and Patrick Li In China

Posted:

The A1 motorcycles BCperformance Asia team rider Ben Burke claimed two hard fought wins in the headlining Chinese Superbike Class and Patrick Li backed up his first round success with two 5th place finishes in the Superstock 600 class last weekend the 14th and 15th of June.

In addition to contesting the Australasian Superbike Championship, the Brighton-based motorcycle dealership, A1 Motorcycles and BCperformance will be contesting the remaining rounds of the Chinese Superbike Championship with Ben Burke and Patrick Li.

Competing in the Chinese Superbike class for the first time after completing the first round in the Superstock 600 category, Burke on his second visit to the circuit was fastest in every practice session and qualified his Kawasaki ZX-10R on pole by 0.456sec. Li placed his Kawasaki ZX-6R in 5th place for the Superstock 600 class.

With two ten-lap races around the 4.5km Zhuhai International Circuit scheduled over the Saturday and Sunday as part of the Pan Delta Festival and soaring temperatures in the high 30‰Ûªs mixed with high humidity, it was to be gruelling for both Burke and Li.

Saturday‰Ûªs race saw Burke get a great start but hot on his heels was the local factory Yamaha rider, Huan. Both riders then battled it out over the complete race distance with Burke holding his rival off to the line.

The second outing on Sunday afternoon was to be a repeat of the previous day‰Ûªs battle and both riders were not giving an inch, the race came down to a last lap fight which saw Burke again come out on top resulting in a perfect weekend for the Aussie.

‰ÛÏI am very pleased about my weekend." Burke stated after taking his first Chinese Superbike win. "The team and I worked so well together to set up what is essentially a new bike for the circuit.

"I am really enjoying riding the Kawasaki ZX-10R and look forward to racing back on Aussie soil. I massive thanks must go to Patrick Li, Vicky Gan and their respective families for their hospitability and support in China‰Û
