Sponsorship Proposal 2017

Wayne ends up Runner-Up in Championship after mistake in race.

I started the weekend off feeling positive that I can win back to back championships but it wasn't to be.

Qualifying ended with Cru Halliday in pole position and I secured second place just ahead of Troy which was a solid result for the championship.

First and Final race of the AFX-SBK Championship which was for double points didn't go ideal for me, got an very average start and then crashed on lap three mid corner in turn 9, it's was not ideal but that's the way racing goes. A massive congrats to Troy Herfoss and Honda they did an awesome job and for me second in the AFX-SBK Championship is not too bad. We got to have another crack on Saturday which was the main day and I was hoping to get a decent result. Starting from 8th on the grid just made that task a little harder for me, also with Troy winning the AFX-SBK round he now moved 1 point ahead in the championship.

crash

Race 1 - Was always going to be tough race starting from eight on the grid, but worked my way forward and just couldn't hold off Troy and finished just off the podium in forth place and moved to 3 points behind Troy. Still two more races to move forward and hopefully pull back some points in the next race and make the final race a shootout for the championship.

focused

Race 2 - We tried our best in that in Race 2 and put up one hell of a fight, finished third behind Mike Jones and Troy Herfoss. Just one more race to go and I am five points behind, but we all know anything can happen in racing and we will be out there fighting again in the final race of the season.

race2

Race 3 - Was leading the championship during the race but it wasn't meant to be, you just can't give talented riders that much of a head start. Made things hard for myself by crashing on Friday and starting from 8th position for all three races. The result was just 1 point, but we will be stronger in 2016. We didn't get it right a few times this year which didn't help, but you can never put it down to one race meeting. We pushed Troy all the way to the end and this was what I hoped for, very happy with the way I am riding at the moment. A big thanks to the Yamaha Race Team and my mechanic Warren and teammates Glenn Allerton and Cru Halliday.

podium

A massive thanks to everyone that has supported me in 2015, special thanks to Yamaha Racing Team, Muzz Buzz, SpeedAngle, Berik Leathers, Shark Helmets, Milspec, Mike Price Racing, Bullseye Electrics, MotoSpec, Shotz and Champions Ride Days.

After a year on the Yamaha R1M we will come out much stronger in 2016.
