Cru Halliday Wins 1000cc Superstock Championship at ASBK

23 Aug 2010

Yamaha supported rider Cru Halliday capped off a remarkable season winning the 1000cc Superstock C&D championship at the fifth round of the Australian Superbike Championship held at Queensland Raceway over the weekend.

Halliday had been the form rider of the category all year and just needed to continue on with his recent racing form to take the championship. He dominated proceedings in the opening leg on Sunday morning and the victory gave him enough points to secure the championship with two races to spare.

“I just tried to ride the race at a good flow and not over ride the track,” Halliday said from the podium. I was able to do that and get a good break on the rest of the field and not have to push too hard in the final laps.”

“This has been a great championship for me and I need to thank everyone involved who support me. My family and friends, everyone at Yamaha and YRD, and anyone that I have forgotten. I am really happy to win this,” he concluded.

Halliday was able to refocus after the early championship celebrations and put the icing on the cake to win the final two legs to claim the round overall as well as the championship victory.

Fellow Yamaha supported riders of Aaron Morris and Michael Jones claimed second and third overall respectively in the 600cc Superstock division. After a championship long battle with Matthew Walters, the Queensland Raceway event would see the three again go at it and provide some of the best racing of the weekend.

Morris never quite found his mojo all weekend and struggled to get the results he needed while Jones entered the final round behind on points and desperate to make up lost ground. After five hard fought races, Jones took second overall with Morris in third allowing Walters to slip through and snare the round and championship victory.  

Yamaha claimed the manufacturers’ cup in the 600cc class with 1752 points, well clear of its nearest rival on 814.
