ASBK is capped at 1300cc

He was racing with his son Oille @ Hidden Valley during the 3hour and was there with his 2 seater 1299 doing Raffle rides.

Its pretty cool trying to keep up with somebody like him around the track.



But Herfoss and Falzon were serious quick all this season, the Ducati bikes werent in the running compared to the new Honda and Suzuki bikes.

I think Troy is a bit frustrated with the performance of the Ducati and wants rectify this ? Dont forget Desmo Sport changed riders mid season and Corey Turner had limited experience in ASBK. If Mike Jones cant secure a start in Europe we might see him gridded up on a Ducati in ASBK . The ASBK guys are dipping into the 1'32"s around PI , mid field in WSBK so competition is pretty hot down under.
Thanks from bradp51, jock39racer and JonT

Just another reason to get to PI in Feb for Rd1 of the WSBK and see these guys in action in the support races.

Yes,

at Hidden valley the DesmoSPort team bikes were way off the pace. onehad 2x cracked headers and the other was just off the pace. There was almost 3 second a lap and 40kph speed difference at end of straight.
Those new Honda's were bloody fast.

There hasnt been much support for any Ducati racers in local or ASBK racer for a while.
A local racer on a MV was cold called and offered a nice discount on parts by MV's distributor just to help keep the MV's out racing.

Yeah if you haven't been to Phillip Island for the WSBK races this would be a good year to go, the camping ground is great and being right next to the track is the best feature.

For those of us who are unable to camp out there, how are the accommodations close to the track?

Hi mate,

There is heaps and heaps of accommodation options:

1. Stay in Melbourne - 1.5 hour commute via bus, chopper or private vehicle.
2. Stay in San Remo - A beautiful little town 15 mins from the circuit just off the island. There is an awesome resort called San Remo which has rooms, and up to 5 bedroom apartments.
3. Stay in Cowes - 5 mins from track with loads of houses, apartments and hotels to stay at.

Trivago, AirBnB, Booking.com......all these sites will show your options.

WSBK rules allow you to take your bike around the outside of the track and park it next to where you sit. There is about 1/3 of the people who go to Motogp, but yet the same level of general admission and tierd clubs. I believe the ultimate package , which includes choppers from Melbourne is $2000.

If you need any help drop me a PM and I'm happy to assist. I'm going again this year.
Thanks from DucatiTerminator
