Scott Moir wins New Zealand Battle of the Streets

Posted:

Suzuki‰Ûªs Scott Moir put his GSX-R1000 on the top step of the podium at Sunday‰Ûªs 25th annual Battle of the Streets race at Paeroa in New Zealand.

The 31 year old finished a solid third in the first of two Formula One races, the top three riders ‰ÛÒTony Rees, Toby Summers and Moir ‰ÛÒ crossing the finish line just a few bike lengths apart. Moir then snatched the lead at the start of race two and then shot away from the chasing bunch.

When race one winner Rees pulled out with muscle cramps, Moir was left to battle it out with Summers for the overall win and, when he overshot a corner, Moir thought he'd blown it. But Summers also overshot the same corner and so Moir's position at the front was safe and he held on to win the race and take the class win overall, by just one point from Summers.

"This is the first time I've raced a Superbike here, so to win today is pretty remarkable," Moir beamed. "I didn't come here with any expectations. It was close racing and I guess I picked-up on it fairly quickly. I didn't know I'd won the day overall until I returned to the pits at the end of the race. I was totally buzzed-out by the news. It's pretty cool to win here.‰Û
