In Pro Stock Motorcycle Locky Ireland took his Lucas Oils Suzuki to the winner’s circle for the first time in a victory over Phil Howard, who came back from a braking area crash in qualifying to take a runner-up spot.
Ireland said he was happy to be a part of history. “I’m definitely rapt for my first win and being the first winner in a 1000 feet race in the first event back in Adelaide in over ten years is one to cherish,” he said. “I really want to upgrade the number three plate to a number one.”
