PJ Jacobsen took his debut win aboard his Tyco Suzuki GSX-R1000, racing on the short track at Mondello Park during the Adelaide Masters’ Series. He also took second and third placed finishes in two other Masters’ Superbike outings.

The 18-year-old New Yorker was primarily using the track time to prepare for this weekend’s British championship round at Donington, but enjoyed the experience all the same.

He said, “It was a pretty good day. It was a case of really having to know the track to go quick, but although it was a bit bumpy we did okay against the local guys who had home advantage.

“It was nice to take a win and two other podium positions and the Tyco Suzuki worked awesome all day

“Lee Johnston just got the best of me on the last lap of the Grand Final. I did get past at turn one, but ran a bit wide. I was lining him up for a pass at the last corner but he held me off, but it was a good day.

“I would have liked to have won all three races but it sets me up well for Donington Park. I feel awesome on the bike right now and I’m really looking forward to Donington where the aim is to finish on the box.”
