Adelaide Masters' Series – Mondello Park
PJ Jacobsen took a debut Superbike victory on the short track at Mondello Park during the Adelaide Masters’ Series on Sunday on his Tyco Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superstock machine. He also took second and third placed finishes in two other Masters’ Superbike outings.
The 18-year-old New Yorker was primarily using the track time to prepare for this weekend’s Silverstone British championship round, but enjoyed the experience and hopes to return in October for the final round.
“Yeah it was a pretty good day,” said Jacobsen. “It was a case of really having to know the track to go quick, but although it was a bit bumpy we did okay against the local guys who had home advantage. It was nice to take a win and two other podium positions and the Tyco Suzuki worked awesome all day.
“Lee [Johnston] just got the best of me on the last lap of the Grand Final. I did get past at turn one, but ran a bit wide. I was lining him up for a pass at the last corner but he held me off, but it was a good day. I would have liked to have won all three races but it sets me up well for Donington Park. I feel awesome on the bike right now and I’m really looking forward to Donington where the aim is to finish on the box.”
