Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team’s Jamie Stauffer and Troy Herfoss are preparing to climb aboard their Honda CBR1000RRSP machines for the penultimate round of the 2016 Australian Superbike Championship at Morgan Park in Queensland this weekend, August 5-7.
With the ASBK now reaching the pointy end of the championship, Round 5 at Morgan Park is set to be more important than ever, and with a successful test at the venue under their belts, both Stauffer and Herfoss are high on confidence as they make their way to the Queensland circuit.
Herfoss, who currently sits in third in the Superbike Championship standings was fastest at the Morgan Park test only a few short weeks ago, and says that he’ll be looking to carry that same speed into round five of the series this weekend.
“I’m really looking forward to this weekend’s round at Morgan Park, it’s been a while between races so we’re all eager to get back out there,” Herfoss said
“It’s been really tough at the past two rounds of the ASBK, but our test at Morgan park a few weeks back went well, and we were able to close the gap on the front guys a little bit, which is very positive.
“I’m really impressed with the work that the team has been doing on the bike, and I hope we can keep our pace high at Morgan park and claw back a few points.”
For Stauffer, Round 5 of the ASBK provides yet another opportunity for him to climb aboard his CBR1000RRSP Honda machine, and says he’s looking forward to hitting that track being back at 100 per cent fitness this weekend.
“It’s going to be nice to get back on that bike again this weekend that’s for sure,” Stauffer shared
“We’ve had a bit of a rough year with my injuries, but I’m finally starting to feel 100 per cent, so the team and I are keen to get to Morgan Park.
“We didn’t race at Morgan Park last year, so it was good to get a test in at the venue a few weeks ago. The bike is feeling good, I’m feeling good and we’re all looking to moving forward this weekend.”
The Crankt Protein Honda Racing Team will race at Round 5 of the 2016 Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul Pirelli at Morgan Park this weekend, August 5-7.
