Top Ten Finish For Jones at Winton

Posted:

Queensland‰Ûªs Mike Jones has recorded a top ten round finish in both the AFX Championship and Swann Series as part of round four of the 2014 Swann Insurance Australasian Superbike Championship at Winton Motor Raceway with Mike finishing as high as seventh outright on Saturday.

With Friday‰Ûªs practice being dampened by wet weather for much of the four Superbike sessions, Mike work hard in the pits to identify a setup that would achieve a successful qualifying time after not having tested at Winton prior to the weekend.

Jones secured eleventh in the 18 minute session with the Crazy Dogs Kawasaki rider then going on to take ninth and seventh in Saturday‰Ûªs two races with the third being declared after two laps due to two red flags. Mike‰Ûªs results in the two races handed him sixth for the day in the AFX Championship and he now sits fifth in the series overall.

After making further improvements prior to Sunday‰Ûªs races, Mike returned to the top ten in the first of three ten lap races as he took ninth before progressing to eighth in race two.

A tenth place finish in race three secured Jones eighth for the round in the Swann Series, placing him in eleventh outright for the series with two rounds remaining.

‰ÛÏI'm happy with the weekend and there's a lot of positives to take home from the round considering it was my first time at Winton on the Crazy Dogs Kawasaki ZX10. With no prior testing at the circuit, I'm pretty happy to finish every race inside the top ten and to be the first green bike across the finish line in almost every race.‰Û
