Team InsureMyRide Racing’s Glenn Scott will be looking to use the experience and set-up advice gained during a recent test at Queensland Raceway alongside Top Rider’s Bernie Hatton to return to the top step of the podium in the Australasian Superbike Championship as the Central Coast rider turns his attention towards the title race with three rounds remaining.
Despite a minor setback at the last round at Mallala, a determined Scott is focussed on returning to the front of the large Superbike field. As the race for Championship points hots up with three rounds remaining after this weekend, Glenn remains fully committed to delivering maximum effort and commitment every time he hits the track with pre-race preparation critical to that success.
“I can’t wait to get back on the bike this weekend at Queensland Raceway. Round two at Mallala was a bit of a struggle for us, although we came away with some positive results we unfortunately had a DNF on the Sunday in race two so I’ll be working hard this weekend with my team to that around and bring home my InsureMyRide Superbike on the top step,” Scott said.
A recent two day test at Queensland Raceway has allowed Glenn to set up his Team InsureMyRide Racing Honda Superbikes for the high speed and heavy braking reliant circuit. Friday’s practice sessions will provide the opportunity for the 22-year-old to fine tune the last couple of critical areas prior to qualifying and the weekend’s six races to ensure he can be on target for a good weekend.
“We had an extremely positive test last week at Queensland Raceway. It was great to have Bernie Hatton from Top Rider there helping with some riding tips and my feedback to help set up the bike better. We worked really hard on our weak points on track and by the end of the two days we had made some very positive steps forward in my riding and the bike with the help of my Mechanics Vaughan and Adam.
“There are still some sections to improve but with some heavy brain storming we feel we have the answer that will fix our remaining weak points on track,” Scott added.
After securing a strong list of results for the season so far including race wins, Glenn admits it has been an enjoyable first two rounds of the Championship. As the season hits the halfway point, Scott is turning his full attention towards continuing to achieve podium results whilst also attaining critical points for the series overall.
“This year so far has been amazing, I love riding the new CBR SP Honda and my great team really makes race weekends a lot of fun. We are focused on bringing home some solid results this weekend to improve our position in the overall standings,” Scott concluded.
Round three of the 2014 Australasian Superbike Championship takes place at Queensland Raceway, Ipswich, Queensland from June 27-29.
