The young Aussie rider showed why he is the current Australian 250 Production Champion by quickly putting his Kawasaki Ninja 250R supplied by Graeme Billingham Race Fairings on pole position and setting a new lap record for this class.
Luke then took 3 wins from 3 starts giving Luke and the Kawasaki Ninja 250R a clean sweep. To make the victory even more sweeter, the last round of the race meeting was also the 2013 NZ GP Title for that class. So Luke not only claimed top spot on the podium in his first international event, he secured the New Zealand Grand Prix title as well.
Luke said “He was wrapped to come away with the round win and said the competition and race track was excellent”.. He went onto say “That everyone was so helpful and friendly and special thanks to Greg and Dale from Norjo Motorcycles Christchurch for their outstanding assistance with race parts and race support for the weekend”.
Luke will now head further south to the next round of the New Zealand Championship which is to be held at Timaru this coming weekend 13th January 2013.
