2022 Australian Superbike Championship Sunday afternoon race review with the Junior Cup, Supersport & Supersport 300 categories


Sunday afternoon action of Australian Superbike Championship racing continues with the Oceania Junior Cup, where it was a competitive five laps despite the race ending red flag via the Lachlan Moody crash. There were so many lead changes with Levi Russo at the beginning from pole position, but it’s Marcus Hamod, who took out the Race 3 win from 12th, having worked his way into the Top 3 with two laps to go before he took the winning move & stayed 1st by the final lap.

Then we move into the Supersport category as Senna Agius just outsmarted a predominate field by Yamahas from start to finish in Race 2. He had a great early battle against Tom Edwards where he regained the lead after the first lap and pulled off very comfortably against Edwards by nearly five seconds, despite a brake scare at one point that almost saw him lose the lead. A good pre-season run by the way from Agius, who took two wins in this category on one weekend, as he will be heading overseas shortly in the Moto2 European series.

And we round off the Supersport 300 class before the 2nd Superbike race, with another competitive show on Race 3 where we’ve seen so many riders battling back and forth for the top spot. But it’s Varis Fleming who just won in such a photo finish v the two Kawasakis, James Jacobs (2nd) & Joseph Mariniello (3rd) by 0.028 & 0.059 secs respectively. He began the race from 6th spot having been patient for the whole time, before the Glenn Nelson & Johnathan Nahlous crash on Lap 6 opened the door for Fleming to enter the bidding late and steal that race win.
