Sean Condon had his Ninja ZX-10R dialed for Saturday's racing when he crossed the line 1st in the final Superbike race of the day followed by fellow Kawasaki rider Mike Jones to give the Ninja ZX-10R a 1-2 finish. However a crash and subsequent DNF in the opening Superbike race on Sunday would leave him playing catch up for the rest of the day. His DNF-8-6 results left him in 11th overall for the round. He currently sits in 6th place in the championship.
Sean Condon say's, "I'm definitely feeling more comfortable on the Ninja ZX-10R and that showed with a race win on Saturday. I was confident of taking that momentum into Sunday's racing but I crashed in the first race and I was left pretty dizzy for the rest of the day. I've definitely got the pace of the others and I'm looking forward to getting the Ninja ZX-10R back on the podium at Winton."
Defending champion Matt Walters struggled to find an optimum set-up for his #1 wearing Ninja ZX-10R. The Australian champion struggled to 11-13-11 results for 12th overall.
