Mike Jones One To Watch

5 May, 2009 - The MRRDA Series held its second round at Broadford over the weekend (May 2-3) and under a gloriously sunny sky, young Mike Jones confirmed that he is one to watch on his Motologic prepared Moriwaki MD 250 GP Mono.

He rode the Moriwaki consistently throughout the weekend to finish in 2nd place overall in the combined 125GP/250GP class.  Now on 60 points he is confident that he can maintain a solid pace going into Round 3.

“I feel more and more confident on the bike each time I go out, and racing at Broadford was terrific as the track suits the 250 really well.  I’m extremely happy with my results, coming first in each race for the 250GP mono class was great.”

Not only did Jones dominate the 250GP mono class, but he also set a new lap record in Race 2, crossing the line at 101.60 sec.

“I couldn’t be happier with my track times especially after setting a lap record in Race 2!  I know I’ll be able to go even better at Mac Park in July.  The team at Motologic have been great.  They are really supportive and always available for technical advice.”

Motologic owner, Paul Free couldn’t be more impressed by the shy rider’s results over the weekend.

“Watching Mike develop as a rider is extremely exciting.  He is going from strength to strength.  I watched from bay 13 at the top of the hill and I could see he was meeting his apexes perfectly lap upon lap.  It was fantastic to see, Mike was the only rider that I saw to really get his line through the chicane right, which is a difficult little section of the track. I have no doubt that he will continue to impress.”

You can also catch Mike at Qld Raceway on May 30-31 for the 3rd and 4th round of the ASBK series riding under the Motologic banner.
