Yamaha R6 Supersport Domination Continues at ASC

19 Mar 2014

Yamaha riders again filled the podium and then some, at the opening round of the Australian Superbike Championship in the 600cc Supersport category, over the weekend.

The Yamaha R6 has again proven to be the standout choice in the ultra- competitive 600cc class filling the top positions on both Saturday and Sunday’s events. 16 out of the 26 riders entered in the class were Yamaha mounted as racers decide with their wallets on the quality of the production Yamaha R6.

Saturday’s competition saw competitors have their first hit out of the year as they chase series points with the winner of the Yamaha Motor Finance sponsored event taking home a sparkling 2015 Yamaha R1 for their efforts.

Aaron Morris got the jump on the field on Saturday and won all three races contested. Morris was in top form and successfully fended off spirited challenges from Aiden Wagner to take top spot on the day with the maximum 75 points.

Wagner was hot on the heels of Morris in all three races and took second for the round. Callum Spriggs rounded out the podium in third, with fellow Yamaha rider Daniel Falzon in fourth.

Callum Spriggs won the round with 67 points after the three races contested. Spriggs compiled 3-1-2 finishes in a very consistent showing for the day and heads the field as they look towards round two.

Aaron Morris proved fast and won two races but a ninth in race two left him a handful of points shy of Spriggs and had to settle for second. The final podium spot was Aiden Wagner’s on the back of his 2-3-3 results was equal second with Morris but third on count back. He was just ahead of the reigning champion, Daniel Falzon with 5-2-4 finishes in fourth.

“The R6 is clearly the racers choice in the Supersport category as the results over both days show. The top riders in the category are all Yamaha R6 mounted and receive significant support via our YRD program,” said Yamaha’s John Redding.

“All the guys put on a great display of racing and it was a Yamaha freight train up front all weekend. It gives us great satisfaction in assisting these riders and our job is made easier because of the high platform the production the Yamaha R6 is built on.

“YRD are also proud to be involved with not only these riders but the Supersport category as it is the breeding grounds for future champions.

Congratulations to Aaron and Callum on their victory over the weekend and we look forward to working with many of the Yamaha riders in the Supersport class over the coming rounds,” Redding ends.
