GSR Kawasaki finds consistency at Morgan Park
Central Coast’s local talent Glenn Scott has made a promising impact on the race track for his second race of the season at round 5 of the ASBK Championship at Morgan Park, QLD with a consistent P11 finish in both race 1 and 2. With windy conditions and an extremely challenging circuit which tested both Glenn and the bike, GSR Kawasaki were extremely happy to finish the weekend with a great result.
“Morgan Park Circuit was a new track for me. It has a tight twisty lay out with a lot of bumps, which makes setup of the bike important and also makes it very physically demanding for the rider. After having three days of testing at the circuit we went into theweekend feeling pretty confident”.
GSR Kawasaki managed to comeaway with P15 for qualifying with a 1.15.4 lap time, which was a good result,after they were struggling to break the 1.16 barrier during the practicesessions on Friday. Pole sitter Troy Herfoss did an amazing job in breaking thelap record with a 1.12.6 in Saturday’s qualifying.
After making a few rideradjustments on Saturday night and a few tweaks to the bike, Glenn rode anattacking and consistent race which enabled him to bring it home in 11thposition for both race 1 and race 2.
“I was happy to fight my way toP11 in race 1. We fought hard with the group fighting for 9th position, butthey just managed to pull away ever so slightly. We were able to set a personalbest time for the weekend of 1.15.0 and rode that consistently through therace, which was a really positive step for the team. Race 2 showed we had greatconsistency setting the same lap time and finishing in P11 again. It was agreat result however it highlighted some areas that we need to continue toimprove on for the next round at Winton in just 3 weeks’ time”.
