Too much of a good thing is never enough, right? This weekend sees the kick off of three massive seasons – the MotoGP, Swann Insurance Australasian Superbike Championship and The MX Nationals.
With rain bringing an abrupt end to the first MotoGP test session, Aussie Jack Miller turned his lack of testing into a positive, saying “we had a lot of free time to study the data and make some good comparisons and decisions. Hopefully that makes us more prepared now.” Let’s hope so. With less than 1 second separating the top 14, and only 2 seconds between the leading 22 riders, the final preseason test suggests that this season of MotoGP is set to be a close-fought one. Get behind Aussie Jack!
Swann is once again thrilled to be back behind the Swann Insurance Australasian Superbikes Championship as naming rights sponsor. It will be interesting to see if Team Honda continues to dominate in 2015, or if one of the newcomers can pinch a win. Superbikes royalty Phil Harlum says “last year at Wakefield Park, if you were a second off the pace, that was seventeenth on the grid. That just goes to show how competitive the Superbike field is now.”
The MX Nationals are also set to be highly contested in 2015. Two-time defending champion Matt Moss has added a personal trainer and a wife to his arsenal this year. With brother Jake out with injury for round one, Moss can focus his full attention on holding off an onslaught from rival Kirk Gibbs, who was snapping at his heels in 2014. Let the dirt fly!
