The FX Superbike Championship opens its doors to 2013 at the Sydney Raceway (Eastern Creek) this weekend. The series consist of 6 rounds plus the FX500 shoot out in November. Broc had his first ride on the Yamaha today (Friday):
"About 8 laps in the rain today on the R1, race tomorrow so will have to be on my A game. Main day on Sunday so hope we can get some dry time"

Broc appeared with some of Australia's finest two-wheel talent who descended on the small New South Wales town of Taree this weekend, thanks to a brainwave from Aussie former Superbike World Champion Troy Bayliss. Joined by World Speedway champions, MotoGP race-winners and motocross legends, all pitting their considerable skills on the flat-track at nearby Old Bar at the Troy Bayliss Classic, the entry list also included Jason Crump, Garry McCoy, Chris Vermeulen, Randy de Puniet, Josh Waters, Toby Price and Josh Brookes alongside Broc: “Well I qualified on pole but unfortunately I got taken out of the final on turn 2 while running 2nd and then on the re-run we had a bent disc and no front brake. We ended up 6th and showed we still had good speed against the dirt track boys. Thank you to Carlton dry Honda, Pirelli and Motorex for their help, I’ll be back next year for sure.”

The race didn’t go to plan, it rained today but in the warm up we were quickest pretty much for the whole session. Starting from pole I was hoping for a good result, the race started wet and I got off to a pretty good start, I went around the first sector first, from the second corner I couldn’t believe I had no grip, I don’t know if it was the tyre or if the tyre pressures were not right but the bike was just spinning and I knew something was wrong. I was going backwards so I came in for a pit stop, we put in another tyre and went back out and it was still really bad so we came in and changed the tyre pressure quite a bit and from there it was a lot better. Its unfortunate because I wanted a good result for the last race because next year I’m not really sure what I’m doing, there’s a few things going on at the moment. Its been an up and down year, I was expecting to battle for the championship but little things like this have held us back from that. We just got to look forward to next year and it depends where I’ll be and in which class, hopefully I can stay in this class. Keep your eye on this space for what is going to happen for me in 2013.
