Round three treated fans to an exciting show of talent last month. The record crowd at Wakefield had the ASBK management saying it some of the best ASBK racing seen in recent years with very strong battles across all classes. Lap records were broken in nearly every class from the outset on the Friday when riders hit the track for free practice.

Due to early COVID-19 concerns, the first round of ASBK at Philip Island was cancelled. This left riders a few extra weeks to prepare for round two at Winton Raceway in Victoria. The entertainment didn’t disappoint, with spectators being allowed at the track for the first time in a year.
In stunning sunshine and a spectacular first race of the season, Maxwell aboard the Boost Mobile Ducati scored the win after Penrite Honda’s Troy Herfoss crashed on the last corner of the last lap, managing to get back on the bike and finish 11th, while Desmosport Ducati Mike Jones claimed 2nd and Yamaha Racing Team’s Cru Halliday 3rd.
