27th June 2015 – Troy Herfoss will line up on the front row tomorrow in the Swann Insurance Australasian Superbike races with team mate, Jamie Stauffer on the second row in P8 after a solid day’s racing at Sydney Motorsport Park for the AFX-Superbike Series.
From his P3 grid position today, #3 Herfoss took 3rd in both 14-lap races and is confident he will be fighting for race wins tomorrow. “Today went fairly well although I would have liked to have been first across the finish line of course. I raced consistently and we are making a couple of subtle changes overnight so I am looking forward to tomorrow’s Swann Series races. It was great to get another podium finish and extend my championship lead.”
#2 Jamie Stauffer is more than ready to take it to the field tomorrow after a jump-start penalty in Race 2 meant he had to forego his very convincing race win. “Today went pretty well although the jump start penalty is particularly frustrating since I lead for much of the race and crossed the finish line first. Still, I am pleased with the headway we made with the set up of the CBR1000RR SP and starting from P8 on the front row is not the end of the world. I feel strong and the bike is where I need it to be so we will see what tomorrow brings.”
The Swann Insurance Superbike Championship races can be viewed LIVE tomorrow at www.teamhondaracing.com.au/live-stream.html from 9:40am AEST.
25th June 2015 – Team Honda Racing’s Troy Herfoss enters Round 3 of the Australasian Superbike Championship as the series leader onboard his Honda CBR1000RR SP and has no plans to relinquish his position this weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park.
The season so far has been a positive one for Herfoss whose skill on the CBR1000RR SP continues to impress. Currently leading both the FX-Superbike Championship and the Swann Series, Herfoss has an unwavering focus on the long road to the title. Heading into Round 3 this weekend, he commented, “I have a lot of confidence in the bike and the team going into this weekend’s event. The team has been working really hard to make sure we can remain strong at Round 3 in Sydney and I have been training hard. I believe we are heading in the right direction with the bike and I am really looking forward to getting out on track and seeing what we can do.”
Likewise, #2 Jamie Stauffer’s powerful return from injury at Mallala shows just how determined he is to ensure he remains in title contention. Stauffer finished Round 2 at Mallala Motorsport Park in 2nd overall in both series, winning 2 races. Heading into Round 3 at Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend, Stauffer says he is ready to battle for maximum points. “I can’t wait to get back on the bike at Sydney Motorsport Park and see if I can improve my championship standing further. I was pleased with my results from Round 2, especially given the injury, but now I really need to focus on winning as many races as possible if I’m going to have a chance at the title. I’m not that far off the top 3 in terms of points so we’ll see what we can achieve this weekend.”
Round 3 at Sydney Motorsport Park can be viewed LIVE this weekend at www.teamhondaracing.com.au/live-stream.html There will be a special 1 hour live panel show on Friday night from 6pm – 7pm AEST and then all the racing action on Sunday from 9:40am AEST.
