K-Tech Results Round Up: Phillip Island

PJ Jacobsen got off to a good start in Phillip Island.
The following is from K-Tech...
The Ten Kate Honda World Supersport team produces a positive start to the season with PJ Jacobsen at Phillip Island. His K-Tech equipped Honda CBR600RR World Supersport bike was first into the daunting turn one allowing PJ to be up at the sharp end of the leading group.
Reigning Champion Kenen Sofuoglu took the lead from him at Lukey heights, with team mate and newcomer to World Supersport Championship, Randy Krummenacher and Italian Caricasulo following closely behind. The Honda rider was far from finished though, showing the determination he had last year he continued to swap places with Sofuoglu for the lead throughout the first half of the race. A hungry pack was waiting behind including hard-charging MV rider Jules Cluzel, Brit Gino Rea and the experienced Australian, Anthony West.
Jacobsen was consistently the bravest into turn one, showing the confidence he has in the handling and precision of his CBR600RR. Entry into the Honda hairpin, a favourite place to overtake had PJ trying a number of different techniques and styles to either attack or defend.
Those last few laps saw his CBR600RR swallowed up into the pack behind due to a tyre issue that many of the riders were from experience, though still finishing a superb fifth and taking 11 points to the next round in Thailand.
PJ Jacobsen: “What a difficult day. I could only ride half throttle the whole race because I didn't know what was gonna happen with the rear tyre. A very stressful race when you can't race at your full potential. I'll be back strong and ready to fight for the win in Thailand".
Ken Summerton, K-Tech: “What a start to our World Supersport campaign, PJ is such a great rider we can’t wait for the rest of the season. Second position in qualifying was a great effort from PJ and the Ten Kate Honda team and to see K-Tech products in the middle of the front row is a brilliant start to 2016.” The team have done a great job to prepare for the first round with little testing time and with a new suspension supplier for 2016, its a great effort for the opening round.
World Supersport returns in two weeks in Thailand, on 13th March. The Ten Kate Honda World Supersport CBR600RR is fitted with the latest DDS PRO shock, DDS cartridge kits and steering damper, which is available through all K-Tech dealers.
