2nd in the final round of the Asian Road race championship in Doha, Qatar
November 24th, 2013
A guest appearance in the final round of the Asian Road Race Championship at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar saw Broc back on a Yamaha R6 for the first time since the 2008 World Supersport Championship. Riding for the Akeno Speed Racing Team Broc was extremely strong finishing 4th in race 1 and came close to taking the win in the final two laps of the 2nd race in Doha, eventually finishing second to the newly crowned series champion Azlan, who fought back and pipped the Broc to the finish line by 0.180s, the first podium for the Akeno team in 3 years. "Fast crash at the start of qualifying on oil but the boys got the bike back together in time to get back to 3rd, could battle from there. 2nd in final race missed the win cause of couple small mistakes and had to use too much tyre to come back but happy with that. Small private team against the factory's was not easy but the team are happy. Its a very nice Championship and enjoyed the weekend. Has been cool this year to join 4 different championships and see how they are all run in different ways." In 2013 Broc rode in the final round of World Superbikes, World Endurance, won the Australian FX Superbike Championship and ended the year on the podium in the Asian Road Race Championship.
Points finish in 12th for Jerez World Superbike race 2 after tyre problem in race 1
October 20th, 2013
11th place qualification, 18th and 12th place finishes at Jerez riding the number 70 Monster Energy Yamaha Austria Racing Team (YART) World Endurance R1: "We came here with the Endurance bike and we knew it wasn't going to be enough, we always wanted to score points, a top 10 would've been a bonus. First race the tyre spun on the rim so we lost a lot. Second race we changed a few things to try and fix it and we scored points so I'm pretty happy. Second race I was 8th on the first lap and having a bit of a go so that felt good." Click here for the full video.

11th place start for the final World Superbike round at Jerez
October 19th, 2013
Here we are in Jerez for the final round of the World Superbikes we’re doing a wildcard here with my YART Yamaha team that I’ve been doing World Endurance with this year. We had a really good Superpole we ended up 11th. It was much better than our expectations as the spec of my bike is not the same as the World Superbikes its more like what we use in World Endurance. So top 15 and made Superpole, we actually made 2nd Superpole and missed the top 8 by a very small margin, it was less than one tenth so I’m really happy. Tomorrow’s race is going to be long, its quite warm here, I’m not sure what we’re going to be able to do in the race its going to be quite difficult, our electronics package is well below the factory spec lets see what we can do tomorrow. I’d just like to thank the team, Mandy and everyone for helping me make this happen so let’s go out there and get into it. Click here to see the full video. Full gallery here
