Benelli wins Australian Nakedbike Championship
Benelli’s Adrian Pierpoint has taken out 2008 Australian Nakedbike Championship
Benelli’s Adrian Pierpoint has taken out the 2008 Australian Nakedbike Championship. The combination of Pierpoint and his Benelli TnT 1130 Sport were too strong for his fellow competitors at the final round of the Championship held at Eastern Creek raceway.
It was down to the wire with Adrian 12 points behind fellow competitor Neil Webster going into the final race on Sunday but Adrian never looked like faulting, scoring a superb 1st place finish in the final race and enough points to secure the Australian Nakedbike Championship title.
"That feels incredible! I am speechless! To finish such a hard fought championship with a 1st place podium finish I am stoked," Adrian said. "The Benelli TnT has been really strong all year long and I have really enjoyed riding it. This year the class has had such a high caliber of riders racing that to get this win makes it so much more rewarding. I would like to thank all the other riders for making me work so hard." said Pierpoint.
