Team Honda Racing Take the Lead at ASC Round 1

Posted:

A fantastic start to the season for Team Honda Racing with Troy Herfoss and Aiden Wagner taking a win apiece in today's FX-Superbike event at Sydney Motorsport Park placing Herfoss on Pole and Wagner in P2 on the grid heading into tomorrow's Swann Insurance Superbike races.

Wagner has completely exceeded everyone's expectations today by winning his first ever Superbike race and recording a new Superbike lap record in the process with a lap time of 1:30.666 sec on lap 4 of Race 1.

Having had only a day of practice yesterday to familiarize himself on the CBR1000RR SP, the Qld rider has today come out all guns blazing and also managed a 3rd place in Race 2 yesterday afternoon. Wagner will start tomorrow's racing in P2 on the grid.

"I couldn't be happier with my results today." Wagner said. "To win the first race and get 3rd in Race 2 was just incredible. I feel really good on the Honda CBR1000RR SP and I can't wait to do it all again tomorrow. What an awesome day today, thanks Team Honda Racing!"

It was Troy Herfoss who took the Race 2 win today with a fastest lap time of 1:31.825 sec and with a 3rd place under his belt from Race 1, he is determined to keep the momentum going for tomorrow's Swann series races.

"We have had a good start to the year with today's results, but we have a long road ahead." Herfoss said. "Shaun and Paul have worked very hard in the lead up to the event to ensure we have the best bike possible and Glenn has been flawless on the tools.

"I am really happy to start tomorrow from Pole position and I know our Fireblade is competitive so I'm looking forward to getting back out there and finishing the weekend strongly."
