The Penrite Honda Team won the opening round of the Australian SX2 Supercross Championship in Jimboomba on Saturday.
Two-time Australian Champion Gavin Faith put in a flawless performance, taking out fastest qualifier, before winning both his heat race and the main event. What is perhaps more exciting is that Faith believes the entire team are far from running at full capacity and said “I got on the bike for the first time on Thursday.
Everyone worked hard to pull it all together ahead of the weekend’s first round and I believe we can make further improvements. We sat down to debrief and we have a plan to keep us on top”.
Daniel Kersnovske, the teams’ assistant manager and Faith’s crew chief agrees with his rider.
“We have a decent amount of time between rounds to improve the bike and help Gavin get comfortable. He and Josh [Cachia] will benefit from this break” He said.
Penrite Honda’s second rider Josh Cachia surpassed his own expectations by taking second in his heat race and sixth in the main event. “We had a plan and we exceeded it; I couldn’t be happier. As I get faster, I find things that we can improve on the bike and in me. I am looking forward to getting back to work during the break.” Cachia said.
The team now sets its sights on round two of the Australian Supercross Championship in Toowoomba on October the 14th
Gavin Faith – 1st
Josh Cachia – 6th
