Double Win For Waters And New 2017 GSX-R1000

Josh Waters and the new 2017 Team SUZUKI ECSTAR GSX-R1000R dominated the weekend’s sixth and penultimate round of the Australian Superbike Championship at the weekend and moved to within six points of the title lead.

In the opening 16-lap race, Waters led the field from the opening turn, followed closely by Bryan Staring and Glenn Allerton. Staring was having an impressive run in the opening laps, but retired after smoke poured out of his exhaust and engine started losing power, signalling another retirement after a strong weekend.

Waters was checking-out in the front and was the only rider to consistently race in the 1:30’s, only dropping-back into the 1:31's on lap 11, which was a testament to the durability of his Pirelli tyres.
