It’s race weekend in Darwin after a long break from ASBK action. Only the Superbikes join the Supercars for this round but there are three action packed races, one on Saturday and two on Sunday, plus two practice sessions Friday and Q1 and Q2 Saturday… Photos: BiteSize Pics.
Thursday saw the riders and team members meet and greet local fans at the Darwin Waterfront, where they signed autographs and were interviewed about the weekend ahead. They then headed trackside for some shots. By all accounts it’s looking like a top weekend in the Top End. Stay tuned!
The format for the Merlin Darwin Triple Crown sees the Alpinestars Superbikes race three times over two days- a change to the usual two races on the Sunday. MA say that while this does not offer any particular rider an advantage, it does advantage teams that are fast on out-of-the-gate Friday morning as there is effectively one day less until race day.
