The WA boys in Superstock did a gret job too. Ben Henry took a win and a 3rd on the tasty 749R!

That's a great result for Brian, more so when you think about the crash he had in the basin last Sunday (Rd 4 State Champs).

Great stuff :)

The action flew thick and fast at a very wet Winton Motor Raceway in Victoria last weekend and the mixed conditions provided some upsets in the fifth round of the YMF Loan Australian Superbike and Supersport Championships for 2005.

The first of the two 600cc Supersport races saw riders take to the Winton layout on a fairly dry race line but a very wet track greeted them should they wander off the correct line at any corner which made passing maneuvers somewhat treacherous. The Joe Rocket Honda dominance of the 600cc Supersport category was never more evident than in this race when reining champion Adam Fergusson took the race win by 6 seconds over his team-mate Josh Brookes while the next rider home, Jordan Coote (Yamaha), was a huge 44 seconds behind the winner when he took the chequered flag.

Race two saw a whole different scenario played out on a track that started out quite damp before a dry race line started to improve with each of the 17 laps the riders covered. The early race leader was again Adam Fergusson who led for the opening laps before the drying track took its toll on his Michelin wets which started to destroy themselves in very quick fashion. This led to some seriously sideways action from Fergusson and his team-mate Brookes as they strived to try and keep up with Bridgestone privateer Mark Stanley who engaged in an exciting battle for the lead with Fergusson over the first ten laps. However WA privateer Bryan Staring (Allect Racing Honda) had been steadily working his way through the top runners and the Padbury teenager stole the race lead as the race entered its final third. Staring then managed to pull away from his pursuers who had destroyed their tyres and with two laps to run Staring had more than four seconds on his pursuers. He could hardly believe his luck when he looked around to check where they were only to see that he had a handy gap and that he only needed to make it to the flag in order to take victory.

That victory combined with his consistent top five results sustained throughout the championship has seen Staring move into third outright in the Supersport Championship behind the factory Honda pairing of Fergusson and Brookes. While in the battle for privateer honours Staring leads Yamaha top gun Mark Aitchison by seven points with two rounds and four races to go.

The battle for Superbike honours was equally intriguing with the first encounter starting on a dry track that saw nearly the whole field on slicks but a few laps before the end rain started falling and the red flag came out to halt proceedings a few laps early. The minimum distance for the race to be declared had been covered however which saw Fergusson named the winner from Dan Stauffer (Yamaha) and Shannon Johnson (Yamaha).

The real surprise came in the second Superbike race when Queensland privateer Robert Bugden (Yamaha) battled with Adam Fergusson throughout the race with both competitors shod with slicks on the damp but drying circuit. Bugden took a brilliant win that had the Winton crowd on their feet voicing their appreciation in seeing the underdog take the race win.

The championship now enjoys a four week break before heading to Queensland for the penultimate round of the seven round series at Queensland Raceway.

It's good to see a very tight and close championship in both Supersport & Superbike :)
