Honda Genuine Racing prepared for Round Three of the Australian Supercross
Championship being held at the Wayville showgrounds in Adelaide this Saturday the 29th of October.
Current SX1 points leader Justin Brayton has covered all bases in his preparation for the third round
as he looks to keep his unbeaten winning streak alive.
"We have maintained a solid training and testing program since Toowoomba.
The Honda CRF450R has been flawless and I am starting to get really
comfortable" said Brayton.
Brayton only took possession of his Honda CRF450R days before the first
round, which required all of his experience just to be ready when the gate
Despite two wins from as many starts, Brayton has been working
tirelessly with Honda America, Showa and Honda Australia to find the best
settings to optimise performance. Consequently, Team Manager Steve Powell
believes fans are yet to witness Brayton at his absolute best.
"Justin has adapted very quickly when you consider the limited time he has
had on the bike. We are excited with his wins in the first two rounds;
however, I don't believe he has reached his full potential. We have
continued to make small changes to the motorcycle to make him comfortable
and we have seen improvements ahead of this weekend."
The team recently recruited Australian Champion Luke Clout, following the
untimely retirement of Jimmy Decotis after he was concussed in Round Two.
Clout has been busy testing with the team ahead of this coming weekend and
is realistic about his expectations.
"The team, the bike and everyone involved has been amazing. I feel very
comfortable with the bike and the people I have around me. I am going into
this weekend with no expectations. I will regroup following first practice
and create a plan for qualifying and the races."
The teams second 450 rider, Adam Enticknap is pushing for a top five result
and is happy with his progress.
"We are definitely getting there. The team and I want to be inside in the
top six every weekend from here forward and I believe that's a realistic
goal. I need to focus on my starts and passing lapped riders with more
conviction" said Enticknap.
