The fifth round of the FX Superbike championship saw a return to Sydney Motorsport Park (formerly Eastern Creek). After already being confirmed Australian Champion for the National Series usuallu held on a Saturday, this weekend sees 6 races to finalise the main FX Superbike championship, 3 on Saturday and 3 on Sunday.
Saturday qualifying and Broc ended the session in second on the Yamaha Racing R1, only 0.6 secs behind good friend Matt Walters (ZX-10R), a good front row position for the 3 races of 7 laps each on Saturday afternoon.
Race 1 saw Broc finish on the podium in 3rd place only 2.5 secs off the win, but things changed in race 2 when Broc took the victory by 2 secs from Kevin Curtain in 2nd. Race 3 started at 4pm and after 7 laps Broc finished on the podium in 3rd place ending the day 2nd overall, 2 points behind Rick Olsen with a good 65 points haul.

Unfortunately after 12hrs and 418 laps the YART no.7 R1 developed a technical problem which put us out of the race. We were Running in 3rd place at the time my team mate Josh Hayes was on the bike and we were in a strong position for the championship. All the guys in the team did a great job and we're gutted to end the race this way. Click here to watch the video blog.
