Sean Condon Off To A Great Start At ASC Series Opener
Kawasaki supported rider Sean Condon secured a 2nd place race finish on board his Ninja ZX-10R at the 1st round of the 2014 Australasian Superbike Championship.

Hot on the heels of 3 Pro Stock race victories at the World Superbike race meet at Phillip Island last month, Condon carried his good form to Wakefield Park on the weekend, stringing together 3 solid race results.

Condon led the pack for 3 laps during race ine before eventually finishing in 2nd place. His 2-4-6 results left him in 4th place for the round and the series.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm over the moon with my results." Condon enthused. "This has been a great confidence booster. I know now that I have the pace, I just need to learn more race craft and that will come with experience.

"The 4 or 5 guys in front of me are all ex champions with years of experience. I‰Ûªm looking forward to learning more and gaining that experience and hopefully keep improving my results.‰Û

Then a technical issue with his spare bike forced him to retire during race 2. Walters was only able to secure precious championship points in the final race where he finished 19th however his weekend ended on a high note when he was presented with the RK Chains Samurai Award for rider of the year in a ceremony last night.

‰ÛÏThis is obviously not the start to the season that I envisaged or hoped for." Walters admitted. "This is not our favourite track because the big horsepower of the Ninja ZX-10R doesn‰Ûªt really suit the track characteristics but I was hoping to keep the bike on two wheels and come away with more points than I have.

"Plus a lack of off season testing really showed. But I‰Ûªm sure all the other guys will have a bad round somewhere along the way, I just need to put this behind me and come out strong at Mallala.‰Û
