Media Release – 08/06/2013 “Testing proving crucial for Scott in lead up to Queensland Raceway"
Glenn Scott has placed a heavy focus on testing and his own physical and mental preparation in the build-up to the next round of the 2013 Australian Superbike Championship to take place next weekend at Queensland Raceway.
The young star who runs from his own privateer outfit, Team InsureMyRide Racing, has been preparing extensively following his opening round success alongside the V8 Supercars at Symmons Plains in Tasmania.
“I am really excited to get the second points round of the championship underway, we did an outstanding job at the opening round of the championship in Tasmania and I am hoping to continue this progress at Queensland Raceway.
“I have been working extremely hard on my physical and mental training with Stephen Mion from Bulleen Health and Fitness to help me handle the bike and hold high concentration both on and off the track, I believe I am in the best physical condition I have ever been in my career so I am excited to apply these weeks of hard work on the bike,” Scott said.
Since the last round, the team have made some changes off-track which is already providing some healthy results to assist in their development amongst the strong factory teams further up the pit lane, though Glenn remains unphased, focussing on the job at hand with a podium at grasp for the 21 year-old.
“The team and myself have been taking baby steps forward all year so it will be good to get back on track and see these improvements we have made to the bike in testing and how we work in the pit box as team have been positive for a race weekend, I am very confident how they have been proceeding,” Scott added.
With the Queensland event looming closer, Glenn took the chance to take part in a final two days of testing in the sunshine state, crucially becoming more comfortable on-board the Team InsureMyRide Racing Honda.
“It was great to get some more track time at Queensland Raceway ahead of next weekend, it’s so important to continue learning the 1000, we have found a good direction, and it seems to be working but as we get faster this may change.
“It feels good to be getting more comfortable with the torque of a 1000, something I have been struggling with quite a lot and still am but I’m slowly understanding how to make the power usable.
“I’m really excited for next weekend and it’s awesome to see my team excited for it also, it’s a great feeling to have a good bunch of people around me that create an awesome atmosphere,” Scott concluded.
Round three of the 2013 Australian Superbike Championship takes place at Queensland Raceway, Ipswich, Queensland from 14-16 June.
