Dynobike Wins Victorian ChampionshipsVictorian Championships, Round 2, Phillip Island
Practice today was very low key as it had been raining early in the morning and track was very wet. By mid-day it had dried and Cameron was able to get out and familiarize himself with the bike and track.
We made a few adjustments to the bike and by the day's end he was cruising in the low 1.40 bracket.
Saturday Qualifying and 2 Races
Qualifying session one found cool but clear conditions
and Cameron was third fastest after using most of the
Session for making set up changes as he had not ridden the R1 at Phillip Island in race trim before and was still working on a good race set up.
Session two and with Cameron now starting to come to grips
with the R1 after a six week break from the superbike secured second
position on the grid only .10 of a sec from pole position.
Race 1 - 4 laps.
Cameron lead the field through the first turn with Tozer in tow and kept his cool leading the four lap sprint to the finish line by a bike length from Tozer.
Race 2 - 4 laps.
The last race for the day was an exciting one with Cameron and Tozer swapping the lead three times during four laps with Cameron drafting Tozer across the line to take the win.
With Cameron and Steve Tozer heading into the last round of the Championship equal on points we were now at the business end of the weekend and the next two races would decide who would leave with the Victorian Tittle.
Championship Race One
Once again Cameron took the lead from the start with Tozer hot on his heals and the lead changed several times during the ten lap race as the two Yamahas left the rest of the field in there wake.
Cameron was confident of taking the win as they faced the last lap board but a moment on the exit of honda corner cost him time and he crossed the line on Tozers back wheel with only .074 between the two bikes.
Championship Race Two
It was winner takes all in the last leg as whoever won
race two would take the tittle and Cameron knew he had to win as he again
holeshot the start and lead lap one.
With his head down and pushing hard Cameron had build a three second lead by lap seven and although losing some time working his way through the lapped traffic secured the race win and the Victorian tittle by over a second at the flag.
"I am so happy to to win the Championship as this is my first year on a 1000 cc machine , the Dynobike prepared R1 was working great which made the job that much easier" said Cameron after winning the championship.
