So Terry O'Neil just couldn't go quietly, could he? Now he's set up a competing "FX Superbike" series (outside of MA sanctioning) under the name Australian Road & Track Rider Promotions along with ARDC and the Benalla Auto Club that control Eastern Creek, Winton and Wakefield Park. The series is to be run alongside the existing Formula Xtreme series under the banner of the AASA, which has been mainly concerned with club level car racing through to the Targa Tasmania. So all the effort to attract more sponsorship to the ASBK and now that will be split between two competitions? They haven't released much detail about spec levels etc other than to say they want to keep everything affordable and encourage privateers - so any money on Yamaha running a factory team, since they've bailed on ASBK like a spoilt child when they didn't get their Superstock way? So what are peoples thoughts? Will this rejuvenate Australian road racing or will the division of resources leave us with two struggling and uninspiring competitions? Will the vested interests of the controlling bodies of 3 major circuits mean that ASBK might be denied access in coming years? Other issues?
