DUCATI MOTOLOGIC RACING TAKES THE WIN!
It has been a long time coming for the developing factory Ducati team. The
race win has eluded them for many rounds despite #27 Jamie Stauffer
recording the fastest lap times at many events and in fact even leading many
a race only to find the first place slip from their grasp. It was
definitely time for a race win.
Although Stauffer did not win both races today, he was elated to be standing
on the top step of the podium by the end of the day. Race one, declared a
wet race began well with Stauffer getting off the line in front of the
field. However, struggling with an unbalanced bike after the qualifying
crash he was unable to match the pace of the other competitors. Stauffer
finished Race 1 in 4^thplace.
#33 Jordan Burgess, having already nursed his injured foot through one race,
finished this morning's race in 13^thplace, the wet conditions making it all
the harder for Burgess.
The second race of the day was dry and saw Burgess finish in 10^thplace,
improving with each outing on the circuit. The injured rider is sore yet
pleased with the improvement over the weekend.
"It has been fantastic to ride at the MotoGP on the 1198R and although I am
fairly sore now, my race placements saw me improving throughout the weekend
which is encouraging. I have a few weeks now to rest my foot and heal until
the final round of the ASBK championship."
Race 2 for Stauffer was the race that the Ducati Motologic Racing Team had
been waiting for, with Stauffer taking the lead off the start line and
holding it until the end. With their hearts in their mouths, the team
watched on as everything fell into place for their first race win of the
season. Stauffer's eyes were alight with excitement as he came in; finally,
#27 Jamie Stauffer: "I'm really happy to finally get that first place;
we've come really close a few times this season. The conditions were pretty
ordinary early in the day and the first race wasn't too good. I got in
front early on, but had trouble with turning the bike on the left hand
corners and went backwards rapidly. In the second race it was the first dry
session of the weekend. We had a really good set–up for the dry conditions
and got off the line well. It gave us the round win for the weekend. The
team has worked so hard all season so it is great to have turned the corner
and won the race. Now we can go into our final round with a view to
finishing the season on a high."
Paul Free departs Phillip Island with a something resembling relief this
weekend as well as the obvious excitement of the win. The team owner and
manager is pleased to see his Ducati team finally take the win he knows they
"Its so good to see Jamie take a race and round win, he has wanted this so
badly.....its also good for team moral, its hard for guys to keep putting in
event after event and not getting a win every now and then."
"The team have put so much into the season to develop the Ducati 1198R and
watching Jamie record the fastest lap times at quite a few rounds and also
lead many races, only to miss the win has been pretty difficult for
everyone. I'm really proud of the team and the riders. It was terrific to
be able to take the overall round win at the MotoGP and great for Jordy to
finish 10th in the last dry race with the injuries he is carrying. It was
also good to run the Ducati on the UK N-Tech Dunlop tyre this weekend, the
performance of the tyre was obvious in the last race with Jamie setting some
incredable lap times, I am really looking forward to our final round in
Tasmania now and I feel sure both the Ducati riders will finish their
The final round of the Australian Superbike Championship will be held at
Symmons Plains Raceway on November 12-14.
