The Phillip Island Championship decider was held this morning at the Pramac Australian Grand Prix event with #28 Troy Herfoss finishing 3rd and team mate #27 Jamie Stauffer 4th after some of the most exciting racing of the weekend.
All 3 Superbike races for Round 2 of the P.I. Championship were a spectator‰Ûªs delight with numerous battles for the top 3 podium positions. There was certainly no way to predict the winner.
Both Honda riders had strong pace this weekend and recorded their fastest laps of the event in the Race 3. The fastest lap for Herfoss was a 1:32.822 sec on the penultimate lap of the race, Stauffer‰Ûªs fastest a 1:33.003 sec on lap 6.
After some of the fiercest Superbike racing of the year, Stauffer finished 3rd overall for the Round and 6th in the Championship.
Having crashed out of Round 1 at the World Superbike Event and therefore not earning points, Stauffer is fairly happy with the result.
‰ÛÏObviously I would like to have finished the Championship in the top 3, but that was a tough ask having missed the first Round‰Ûªs points and also considering the field this weekend." Stauffer said. "The racing was fast paced and quite a few of us well matched so I am happy to come away with the Race 1 win and 3rd overall for the event.‰Û
