Form

Our pick:
Wayne Maxwell – With momentum on his side and essentially a full season of development with the YZF-R1M now, the reigning champion will be strong this weekend. It’ll be hard to split him and title rival Herfoss, however the power of the Yamaha in the run to the line could be the deciding factor.

Next best:
Troy Herfoss – He’s led the championship from round one and has been incredibly competitive all season, despite the CBR1000RR SP’s development being at its max. If he can position himself right on the final laps then he very well could upstage Maxwell for a first Superbike crown.

Outside chance:
Glenn Allerton – Still in with a mathematical shot at winning this championship, don’t be surprised to see Allerton come out firing today and tomorrow. He’s spent plenty of time at the Sydney circuit this year and, with almost nothing to lose, winning this weekend would be all he could do in a bid to steal the title.

Watch for:
Cru Halliday, Mike Jones, Jamie Stauffer, Matthew Walters, Ben Burke
