Talking SPOILER Big up the TRIUMPH 675

For those that may have missed last weekends World SuperSport race from Australia:

Quote:
Scuderia Triumph-SC Fight For The Podium in Australia
03 March 2008 - Scuderia Triumph-SC

The Scuderia Triumph SC team had a weekend to remember after Australian Garry McCoy pulled off the performance of the weekend by battling for the podium after qualifying in 17th place. The Scuderia Triumph SC squad pulled out all the stops for race day and McCoy repaid them for their efforts with a ride that had the 65,400 strong weekend crowd on their feet as he charged through the pack to the leaders. After getting on the back of the fight for the podium, McCoy ran out of time to get to the front and had to settle for a morale boosting sixth position in only the Triumphs second ever world championship race.

Team-mate Illario Dionisi looked set for a strong result after upping his pace significantly in morning warm-up, but unfortunately a technical problem robbed him of the chance to show his true potential and he was forced to retire from the race on lap seven.

Garry McCoy said:
Im pretty happy to have come from 17th to where we finished. At the start I was picking people off pretty much every corner but I could see the front group of guys pulling away and was concerned that I wasnt able to go with them. When I had clear track though I began closing them down pretty fast and I honestly believe that if I could have got past them some how I could have gotten away. From what weve seen today I think the bike has got great potential. Weve still got some work to do on it but if we can improve a few things and I can qualify better its easy to see how we could get some wins.

Ilario Dionisi said:
I got a good start and ended up just behind Garry, but then he started to pull away. The bike was feeling really good and I passed a few riders but then unfortunately I had the problem. My pace in warm-up was good and I felt confident that I could do the same in the race but I never really got the chance.

Team Manager Stefano Caracchi commented:
This was like a dream race for me because I did not think it was possible for Garry to do this. We know what a talented rider he is and with some more experience with the bike our potential is very high. Just two months ago we received a street bike so we must take things step by step. For sure we have had some difficult moments but also some great emotion so we will see what will happen during the rest of the season.

I guess the new Kawis really are hurting.. :(

I still think the 05-06 636 Kawi is the best 600cc bike out there for club racing.

I wouldnt say the Kawis are hurting. I feel they may just not be well represented in the World scene.
I agree the 636 are great. Last year the LSTD team had an '06 636 and it was doing fine. But at the last race of the season used and '07 ZX6R and had better results.

Over here it's the Yamaha R6 that dominates at club level
We have to use the ZX6RR (598cc) which just doesn't seem to quite get there and parts are hard to come by.
Honda have dominated at BSS level (equiv. AMA) for many years but last year it was Suzuki.
This year with the 08 bikes there will only be one winner,
it has tuning forks on the tank

Watched that race last night, what a barn burner. McCoy was on a mission, but I guess he spent his tires catching the lead group as he couldn't do anything once he caught up. A full second a lap faster than the lead group, yet still no podium. If he can qualify better, I can see McCoy dominate WSS. Glad to see the king of slide back on the bikes.
I'm not sure I'd say trusty Swift, they were talking alot about the unreliability of the motor, saying they went through I think three that weekend. But McCoy seemed to make it work in the race. Lots of Triumps in the feild, but Honda dominated the top ten. Go RED!!!!

If Parkes can stay on and Foret not run out of gas, the champion will be riding a Yamaha
