Teams and riders now head to Queensland’s Morgan Park Raceway in the town of Warwick, 130km southwest of Brisbane, for this weekend’s very important round for the championship stars.
Jones, who has picked up form in the last two rounds, has moved from a poor eighth place to third overall, but is still about 59 points behind Waters, with 161 points behind him. Whether he can stay within reach of the front two remains to be seen this Sunday.
Mike Jones has bounced back from potential mishaps early in the season, but will it be enough to stay within reach of the championship?
Round 5 of the Australian Superbike Championship will feature 17 riders competing in two 16-lap races for up to 50 points.
