After an overwhelmingly successful debut at the series opening at Wakefield Park last month, the Kawasaki Insurances FX300 Ninja Cup class of racing did not disappoint at the 2nd round in SA.
Kyle Buckley was the stand-out in the class and was able to hold out round one winner Brandon Demmery with 1-1-1 results on Sunday to take round honours. Demmery finished in 2nd place with 4-4-2 results. AMCN magazine's Paul Young rounded out the podium with 2-5-3 results on board the Kawasaki Motors Finance Ninja 300.
The Kawasaki Motors Finance (KMF) Ninja 300 is proving to be a highlight of the class, ridden by a different invited guest rider at each round. After Jeff Ware's outing at Wakefield Park, Paul Young had the honours at Mallala and put on an awesome show for fans. Considering he missed practice and qualifying on Friday due to time restraints and only rode the bike for the first time in warm up on Saturday, Young rode through the pack extremely well in each race to take 2 race podiums on Sunday.
Kawasaki's Sophie Lovett shone on track in the Kawasaki Insurances FX300 Ninja Cup class with 5-6-5 results giving her 4th place overall and victory in the Women's class. She currently leads the Women's class by 13.5 points over Di Jones and sits in 4th place overall in the championship. Lovett also enjoyed success on board her Ninja ZX-10R in the Formula Oz class finishing in 2nd place overall in B-grade.
Kawasaki supported rider Sean Condon sits 3rd in the Superbike class after a 6th place finish to the round at Malalla.
Fellow Kawasaki supported rider and defending champion Matt Walters had a tough round in the Superbike class. Suffering from arm pump, the Ninja ZX-10R rider was only able to manage 10-11-15 results for 12th overall. Walters will work hard to turn his results around at round 3.
Kawasaki's Matt Walters, Sean Condon all look forward to taking to the track at the 3rd round of the 2014 Australasian Superbike Championship at Queensland Raceway on 27th June.
