Blitzing the competition

A “CLOSE to perfect” third and final Victorian Road Racing Championship round at Broadford secured a one-two Superbike series finish for Moe riders Nathan and Tyson Jones at the weekend.

Nathan claimed the Superbike title by 27 points after beating brother and teammate Tyson, who finished second overall, to the line in two out of three races on a fast, dry race circuit at the State Motorcycling Sports Complex.

The Broadford lap record was again reset by Nathan, who clocked a 57.157 second circuit on his Kawasaki ZXR 1000, with Tyson close behind in a best of 57.244s as the brothers dominated the podium in all three races.

“The last round was pretty close to perfect,” Nathan said.

“Qualifying went well. Tyson managed to get pole position a couple of times and beat me in the last race.

“I qualified second and third a couple of times. I was happy with that, as long as I was on the front row, and stayed within striking distance.”

Nathan also won the Prostock and Over 500cc series championships, taking home a total of five titles.

Tyson scored one chequered flag for the meeting in race three, with Nathan just behind, some 25 seconds ahead of third place.

“It was a really good weekend, we both did new personal bests, it was good close racing and we had a ball,” Tyson said.

“It was really good (for us to finish one and two). We put a lot into it this year so it was good to get the results we were chasing.”

The Jones boys pulled away from the pack in two out of three races, but had to reel in multiple Victorian title winner Steve Tozer on one occasion.

Nathan said he planned to defend his title from Tyson in 2014.

“It’s great racing against Tyson. We bring out the best in each other but I will definitely make sure that he doesn’t beat me to the title next year,” he said.

The pair also leads the interclub series for Gippsland with two rounds to go.
