Top 4 Aussie Superbike riders powered by Akrapovic
In what is without doubt the most competitive season in the history of Australian Superbike racing, this year’s YMF Loan Australian Superbike Championship kicked off with some fantastic racing at Eastern creek earlier this month. After the long summer break we were finally able to see how the field stacked up against each other – with new teams, new riders, returned riders, defending champions – everyone out there battling for the top spot; Each team looking for an edge.
At the end of the weekend when all the dust settled, Yamaha Racing Team rider and defending champ Jamie Stauffer was left standing on top from his team mate and brother in arms Dan, followed by Glenn Allerton and Adam ‘Krusty’ Fergusson both on Hondas – Adam making the debut for team DVS Honda.
A keen eye might have spotted that despite being on differing machines, each of these riders and their teams used one thing in common to stay ahead of the pack. They all ran Akrapovic exhausts.
‘The Akro system is quite simply the best available. Not only do we get more power from the it, but they are just so well engineered and built – we can depend on them to stand up to the hammering we give them. We’ve tested them back to back with other exhausts and nothing comes close’ said Adam ‘Krusty’ Fergusson.
Gas Import’s Doug Sharp, ex MotoGP Mechanic for Repsol Honda and now Australian distributor of Akrapovic products added ‘I know first-hand the importance of top quality products and we’re really pleased to be able to provide such a product not only to the top teams competing out there this weekend on the track, but to all riders – the new hexagonal mufflers and slip ons are as far ahead of their rivals on the street and the dirt as they are on the track.’
