YRT Spice Up Superbikes At MotoGP

Posted:

The Yamaha Racing team made the most of their one off appearance at the Australian Moto GP contesting the Superbike class with Glenn Allerton and Wayne Maxwell leading a spirited fight at the high profile event on their Yamaha R1‰Ûªs.

The team contested three, eight lap races over the Moto GP weekend where each and every race was an intense affair with the lead bunch of riders separated by less than a second in all races.

Glenn Allerton continues his late season surge and raced to second place across the weekend, highlighted by a race win on Saturday. Allerton was involved in a five rider war in race one that saw the lead change several times before having to settle for second.

A battle of the YRT team mates in leg two bought the crowd to the fences with Allerton getting the win over Wayne Maxwell by a few hundredths of a second before he lost grip during the final leg and ran wide allowing several riders to sneak past and taking fifth place.

His 2-1-5 scores totaled 61 points and equal first on the day with Mike Jones but second on a count back due to Jones having the better final race score.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm a little disappointed the way things ended up as I felt I rode well enough to win but that‰Ûªs the way things go sometimes. Every race was a battle and it was good that the Australian Superbike class was able to put on some great racing in front of a big crowd,‰Û
