Allerton completes Symmons Plains clean sweep
Next Gen Motorsports Glenn Allerton has completed a clean sweep of the QBE Australian Superbike Championship class, run in conjunction with the V8 Supercars at the Tasmania Microsoft Office 365.
The BMW rider was the quickest man on track in the morning warm-up, before completing his perfect weekend with a dominating win in this afternoon’s final 16-lap race.
Allerton, who took maximum points from the round, topped every Superbike session held over the weekend.
“I am really happy with today’s race it couldn’t have gone much better other than getting the holeshot,” Allerton said.
“I was behind Robbie off the start but once I got past him I laid down some good laps and got away early.
“This is what we have all been working for. Hopefully we can keep it together and keep building on today’s result,” he added.
Allerton’s only challenge came from Volvo Group Suzuki’s Robbie Bugden, who took the holeshot before relinquishing the race lead to Allerton mid lap.
Team Suzuki’s Wayne Maxwell passed his teammate to finish the race second and now sits 11 points adrift of Allerton in the championship standings.
Team Honda’s Jamie Stauffer and Josh Hook once again rounded out the top five.
CM Racing’s Chas Hern endured another horror day, pulling off on the warm-up lap due to an engine failure.
The teams will now prepare for the next event on the QBE Australian Superbike Championship which will be held at Queensland Raceway on June 14-16.
