SA’s road race teams have continued their results tally from round 1 with more action-packed intense racing at Round 2 of the mi-bike Motorcycle Insurance Australian Superbike Championship presented by Motul (ASBK) in Sydney Motorsport Park over the 25th and 26th March 2023. It was certainly a historic weekend and for the first time…racing under lights!!
A team of 16 South Australians, their families and team members loaded up the trucks for the trip over, all keen to continue the championship journey. Unfortunately, we didn’t see Jack Davis or Phoenix Agar join the crew to make the trip, but hopefully looking forward to them, returning for Round 3 at Queensland Raceway.
With most of our riders have social media pages, here are the ones that we know of so far, so check out their reports and thoughts on how their season has started!

Even being so early in the championship series, we can’t help but be incredibly excited with the level of racing our South Aussies are throwing down. Not only having multiple top 10 placings but also having 2 of our champs lead the 600 Supersport Series. Ty Lynch is currently enjoying the top spot after a stellar consistent series and Olly Simpson charging hard, keen to move up from second place overall. It’s simply fantastic to see!!
Special kudos to young Archie Schmidt, with this being his debut year racing the Oceania Junior Series and fantastically, pulling a 3rd place podium in race 3, to sit in 9th place for the Championship so far.
Pit Lane Studio was there to catch all the action 📸
