Team Honda Racing Ready For Swann Insurance Australasian Superbike Championship
Following on from their success at the World Superbike Event in which Jamie Stauffer won the first round of the Phillip island Championship, Team Honda Racing is looking forward to taking to the track for the Australasian Superbike Championship this weekend.

The preliminary round of the series will be held at Wakefield Park and the team is eager to see how the three-race schedule of the weekend will unfold.

The rider line-up for Round 1 is Jamie Stauffer Troy Herfoss, with Herfoss filling in for the injured Josh Hook who suffered a broken collarbone and wrist in a terrible crash at the World Superbike Event and is focused on healing in time for the second round of the ASC.

Both riders will race under the Team Honda Racing banner, while Wayne Maxwell will race onboard his number 47 Motul Honda with all three riders mounted on the new Honda CBR1000RR SP.

Stauffer who took the overall win at the Phillip Island Championship in February will be aiming for an equally strong result at Round 1 of the Australasian Superbike Championship.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm looking forward to starting the series at Wakefield Park this weekend." Stauffer said. "The test has given us some very valuable information on the best approach for the event so our plan is solid, but there are three races on Sunday so anything can happen.

"I have every confidence in the CBR1000RR SP and can‰Ûªt wait to get racing.‰Û

Though suffering an injury at the World Superbike Event and recovering from a dislocated shoulder, Maxwell is looking for maximum results this weekend.

‰ÛÏMy first event of the year went horribly wrong, but things can only improve so I‰Ûªm focused on starting the Australasian Superbike Championship strongly and moving forward." Maxwell stated. "It is going to be very interesting to see how it plays out with three ASC championship races over the weekend and after the test we did there I believe we have a solid plan.

"The Motul Honda CBR1000RR SP felt strong in testing and with a few tweaks to the set-up I feel confident of good results," he added.

Herfoss, who is no stranger to Superbike racing, joined Stauffer and Maxwell at a recent test at Wakefield Park and is excited to be part of the team for Round 1.

‰ÛÏI can‰Ûªt wait to get out on track this weekend with Team Honda Racing after a really solid test on the CBR1000RR SP last Sunday." Herfoss Enthused. "I‰Ûªm really pleased that Paul has given me the opportunity to fill in for Josh while he recovers and I feel confident we can be strong this weekend.‰Û
