Avalon Biddle: "We turned a corner this weekend in more ways than one! It's safe to say we're moving past a poor weekend at Morgan Park and progressing forwards! There's still some work to do to keep moving forward and get the podium finishes I believe are possible, but fourth overall is certainly a good place to start. We made some suspension changes to the bike throughout the weekend and really made a bit of break though at the end of the final Qualifying session on a dry track. With very limited track time I was slowly building confidence with the R6 to get closer to the expected race lap time. In both races, I was able to aggressive, make passes, and race with the guys around me rather than sitting behind. Phillip Island is up next and it can't come quick enough."
Oli Bayliss: "It was a mixed weekend for me with a crash in qualifying one, to setting the fastest lap time in race one and finally getting a chance to race with Tom (Toparis). The overall results don't really show what what my weekend was like though. I found a step in the first race that I haven't felt before, and even though the bike stopped, the entire team was pumped on what they saw. Glen and Johno worked hard all weekend, and in race two I battled with my mate Tom (Toparis) and Broc Pearson, leading for the first four laps, and challenging him through the race. It feels like a turning point to be honest."
With Avalon Biddle taking two sixth place finishes to secure fourth overall, and Oli Bayliss rebounding from a mechanical DNF in race one, to battle with series leader Tom Toparis Racing and ultimately finish second, it was a strong weekend for Cube Racing at Winton.
