    Super Show To Ignite Mallala ASC Round

    APRIL 20-22, 2007

    The fastest show in town hits South Australia this weekend when round four of the YMF Loan Australian Superbike Championship descends on Mallala Motorsport Park.

    With top in excess of 300kmh, Superbikes are the two-wheeled equivalent of V8 Supercars – except faster! The Superbike lap record for the 2.6km circuit, held by reigning national champion Jamie Stauffer at 1:06.973, is over a full second quicker than the existing V8 Supercar record held by Holden Commodore driver Greg Murphy.

    And with the V8 Supercars not visiting the Mallala venue in 2007, this weekend’s round of the national Superbike championship is the only chance for local race fans to see high-speed world class racing up close and personal. It’s an opportunity not to be missed.

    Reigning national champion Stauffer heads into the fourth round of the series with a large target on his back. And the man taking aim is his own team mate - and elder brother - Dan.

    Jamie, the younger of the Yamaha Racing Team duo, has been near unbeatable in the Superbike class over the past 12 months, scoring 11 consecutive pole positions and an unbroken winning sequence of 14 successive race wins – until the opening race at last month’s round at Victoria’s Winton Raceway. And the man who brought the Jamie Stauffer Show to an end was brother Dan.

    “I think we were all getting a bit tired of Jamie’s reign of terror, and if anyone was going to bring it to an end then I wanted it to be me,†said 30-year-old Dan.

    “There are no team orders, and I want that number plate just as much as he does.â€

    The brothers on their identical blue Yamaha Racing Team YZF-R1 Superbikes currently lie first and second in the points chase after three rounds of the eight-round national championship, and between them have won all six races held so far in the 2007 series.

    Jamie sits on 147pts, 25pts clear of Dan, with privateer Glenn Allerton (Allect Racing Honda CBR1000RR) on 93pts, 2003 Australian champion Craig Coxhell (Team Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000) 2pts further back, and Kawasaki Racing Team rider Shannon Johnson fifth on 87pts. That makes four different marques in the top five championship positions in what is proving to be the most closely-contested Superbike series for over a decade.

    Mallala’s round provided mixed results for the Stauffer brothers in 2006, with Jamie’s win and third in the two Superbike races leaving him overall runner-up for the round behind Honda rider Russell Holland, while by his own high standards brother Dan had a meeting best forgotten when he qualified a disappointing 10th and finished sixth and fourth in the two races.

    “Mallala is the hardest braking circuit we go to, plus the kink in the side straight is a daunting one to get right.â€

    The challengers are many and varied, with Coxhell the current in-form rider of the pursuing pack after a top three finish behind the Stauffer brothers at Winton’s round. The 24-year-old has moved to fourth in the points chase, 2pts adrift of third-placed Allerton.

    “The Yoshimura Suzuki team is like a big family for me and it’s good to be back after spending the past three years racing in Europe, although it’s taking me a little longer to get up to speed than what I would like.â€

    2004 Australian Superbike champion Adam Fergusson is another with fire in the belly after a disappointing Winton round on his privateer DVS Honda CBR1000RR. A previous lap record holder at Mallala, the hard-charging Victorian has a liking for the South Australian circuit, and is one of just a few Superbike riders to have taken Mallala’s daunting back-straight kink on full throttle.

    “Mallala will sort the men from the boys,†says Fergusson. “It’s not a circuit for faint hearts.â€

    With factory Superbike teams from all four Japanese manufacturers – Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha – as well as professional privateer squads such as the Allerton and Fergusson teams, Jamie Stauffer will have to dig deep at Mallala if he is to re-ignite his record-breaking winning run.

    A full support card of Supersport, Superstock, 125 Grand Prix, Nakedbike, Pro-Twin, Formula Xtreme, Yamaha FZ6 Cup, Forgotten Era Superbikes from the 1980s and sidecars will contest 19 races over the two days.

  3. Looking forward to it this year. Missed last year due to being OS.
    Is it me, or have the ticket prices gone up considerably this year. I suppose it was two years ago when I last went.
  4. I'll be going both days.

    Anyone interested in riding up there as a group ?

    Maybe start with a "breakfast" meet, Maccas or something.
  5. Gonna be there Fri - Sat - Sun.

    Will be interesting to see what lap times they do this year.
  6. The ride up sounds good, but unless my bro inlaw gets his bike going by sunday morn we'll probably drive. He has some sort of fuel issue i think with his TLR1000, and I dont have a pillion seat or pegs(the way i like it)
    Not to mention he's a big boy, wont make for a comfy ride 2 up.
  7. Just got the heads up for going sunday. Bro inlaw cant get bike fixed till early next week, fuel pump problem he got told. So it looks like we'll be going by cage. Well if I have to go by cage at least its a 290kw version.
    hope for a good days racing.
