Hi,

Watched the South African domestic super stock race last night.
Russell Wood is on the new R1 after spending last year on the R6 this is also the first year for the liter class.
It seems like the Gixxer 1K is still HP king as they took 1st and 2nd. The next three where R1’s but there seems to be allot of work needed to make the one keep up. I also noticed that he was struggling with the handling and had to pick it up in couple of corners? The Gixxer was listed as “K3” implying that it’s last years model.

The race was red flagged half way through after an accident and then restarted but still Gixxer 1 and 2.

Cheers,
GBG

Sorry forgot to mention that Russell Wood is the current champion for those who don't know him.

It will be interesting to see a full race as Wood was swapping between 1st and 2nd until the race was red flagged
