Yamaha Racing Team
Rd 1 Australasian Superbike Championship 2014
Whilst the start of the 2014 racing season kicked off this weekend past at Wakefield Park, Goulburn, preparations very much began in
November last year. With the support from YRD, Yamaha Racing Development we picked up a new Yamaha R6 and soon had 3 R6's stripped
in the shed. The 2008 model was converted to a road bike and sold, the 2011 model was stripped for maintenance and the new model was
carefully run in and setup for racing. This year we have two top notch Yamaha R6's to race on, thanks to Yamaha Australia for the support.
This year the Australasian Superbike Championship is a 6 round series, encompassing 4 states. Round 1 kicked off at Goulburn on the tight
technical Wakefield Park track with 29 competitors. Friday was practice, I have not raced a sportsbike here before so it was a very fast
learning process. The R6 was performing brilliantly. This year I am adjusting my own suspension and a few tweaks helped with lap times.
Saturday was the start of racing in the YMF Loan Series. I had qualified 23rd.. I kept chipping away in all three races, finishing 20th, 18th and
18th. I was also proud to pick up 3rd in C grade, I was very happy with this as I was regraded up from D grade last year.
Sunday was time for a few more tweaks to improve lap times. I made a change to gearing and suspension, this proved successful. I was now
gaining better starts and drive out of corners, this was the most enjoyable day on track over the weekend. I had gained a new personal best
lap time, which was close to my goal for the weekend. I finished every race, finishing 19th, 22nd and 21st. Again this consistency resulted in 3rd
place in C grade. It was a successful weekend of racing, learning and very much enjoying the experience. We have some good data to use as
a benchmark for the following rounds as well.
DRM is a small team, with a strong loyal network of support from many organisations. I would like to personally acknowledge the support of
a few who helped make round 1 happen. Ian from Yamaha for the advice, Mick for all your help spray painting, preparing the bikes and of
course the professional appearance of my riding gear, Tony at Flynn Transport and Mark from Dynojet for your help.
Round 2 is at Mallala South Australia in May.
