Valuable points for Crankt Protein Honda Racing at ASBK opener
Round 1 of the Yamaha Motor Finance Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) is done and dusted after some extremely close racing at Phillip Island over the weekend and the battle is only just beginning for Crankt Protein Honda Racing.

Crankt Protein Honda Racing departs Round 1 with Troy Herfoss in 4th place and Jamie Stauffer in 11th place in the championship.

The World Superbike event was not without incident for the Honda team. In Race 1 on Saturday a moment of instability from Mike Jones at the front of the tightly packed group caused an unavoidable chain reaction.

It ended in disaster for Stauffer when he hurtled into the back tyre of Herfoss who had quickly shut off his throttle to avoid the bike in front. The resulting impact threw Stauffer from his motorcycle only to slide at high speed down the front straight. Luckily, the other riders avoided Stauffer and he was able to limp to Racesafe for medical attention (See Video Below). Stauffer will possibly require skin grafts to his forearm in the coming days.

The impact also damaged the rear tyre on Herfoss‰Ûª bike although he still managed to finish Race 1 in 5th place with a fastest lap of 1:33.527 sec.

In Race 2 on Sunday Herfoss recorded his fastest lap of the weekend, a 1:33.123 sec to finish in 5th place. Battered, burned and with a number of bruises from the previous days big crash, Stauffer nonetheless lined up on the grid for Races 2 and 3 ready to do battle again finishing this race upright and in 7th place.

Race 3 saw Herfoss battle it out for the lead onboard his CBR1000RR SP only to have to settle for 2nd place by just .033 sec, placing him 4th overall for the event.

Herfoss is looking forward to Round 2, saying ‰ÛÏFourth position for the opening round of the ASBK is obviously not where wanted to start the season, but it is just the first event and we still come away with valuable points. My pace over the weekend was good on the Crankt Protein Honda and I am really looking forward to racing at my home circuit, Wakefield Park this month. A massive thanks to Crankt Protein Honda Racing for all their efforts this weekend, a great job done by all!‰Û
