Pearson’s Cube Racing Ninja 300 powered on to put him across the line in first place for every race, however it wasn’t all smooth sailing as teammate Tom Toparis and various other Kawasaki Insurances FX300 Ninja Cup contenders were dicing for a win.

“Well I knew from the start that Tom (Toparis) was out for the win and on about lap three we had a couple of extra boys to take on, so I thought I’d relax for a couple of laps and see what would happen, but I timed it well and came out with the win so I’m happy,” Broc said as he recounted the first race.

“Overall the experience was awesome, we had great racing, and especially that last race, it was awesome. I’m kicking myself I haven’t been in it from the start. I’ve had an awesome time and ill jump back in and have some more fun at the next QLD round,” commented Broc on his Kawasaki Insurances FX300 Ninja Cup experience.

Cube Racing teammate, Tom Toparis made his second appearance in the series, having missed out on the first round. Toparis placed second on the podium in every race on the day and he displayed enormous improvements in his bid against Pearson saying, “It was competitive and my results at the last round were good but today was way better. Track time on the bike has helped a lot, gradually every day I’ve been working harder and harder. I’m pretty light compared to the other riders so that helps too!” exclaimed Toparis.

Sam Condon displayed pure class and elegance aboard his Bikebiz Kawasaki Ninja 300 to come home with 3rd place overall, a result of finishing 3rd in every race. The modest New South Welshmen maintains the overall Kawasaki Insurances FX300 Ninja Cup lead with 180 points, only 5 points in front of SA Kawasaki BCperformance rider, Jimmy Broadbent.

Queenslander, Mark Rodgers continued his solid racing efforts in the FOB class, taking out the round and maintaining his series lead saying, “A perfect weekend, I’ve had a great weekend. I had a great battle with Julie Klinker that time (race 3) and congratulations to her as well because she did really well and great to see her on the podium.”

Five contenders battled it out in the Ladies class over the weekend with Keegan Pickering eventually taking the win from Julie Klinker and Teakay Starwyn. Laura Brown was positioned to take out the Ladies class after claiming the win in the first two races however an unfortunate crash in the final race pushed her into 4th overall for the round.

“It was tough battling with the girls all day but we came out on top so it was great. At the start of the weekend I was a little disappointed with times but my riding its self has improved and its put me out on top which is great,” Julie said.

The next round of electrifying Kawasaki Insurances FX 300 Ninja Cup racing will take place on 10thSeptember at Sydney Motorsport Park.
