Hook Wins in Taiwan

Race 1 in the Asia Dream Cup for Round 5 of the 2012 PETRONAS Asia Road Racing Championship went contrary to Joshua Hook's predictions that there would be no pack racing this time around at the Pen Bay International Circuit. But despite the tough racing conditions, the Australian rider was able to keep it together and win his second victory of the season with a time of 23:62.602s.

With six riders in the front group, Hook stuck to his strategy of staying in touch with the lead, but keeping out of the endless lead-swapping. The young Australian waited until the final two laps before gunning his way to the front. "I felt secure with this strategy because I knew that I was strong in the back section of the track. During the last two laps, I made sure that every time Okubo overtook me, I would regain that place as soon as possible," described Hook.

Id like to say a big thanks to Honda Australia, Arai, Alpinestars and Oakley for there help and continued support through out the season.


Asia Dream Cup Japan

We arrived at the track early Friday morning and had 2 practice sessions on Friday, it was the first time for me at this track we had 2 x 30 minute practice sessions so I was learning the track and in the first session went fastest by .668. In the 2nd session I made the 2nd fastest lap time overall so I was happy with how the day went.

Saturday qualifying and 1 race. I qualified 4th and in the first race was racing in the front group which was about 9 bikes. With about 3 laps to go I got taken out alone with another 2 guys but ended up finishing in 6th position.

Sunday we has race 2. Race two I made sure I was leading the race at all times so I could stay out of the heavy battling that was behind me, on the last lap I got slipped streamed by 2 guys to the last turn and I past both of them through the last corner and took the win I was so happy for myself and the team.

I would like to thank Bryan for working hard all weekend and giving me a bike to win on.

Also thanks to Honda Australia for making it all possible.

Thanks to Arai Helmets for there services over the weekend.

And thanks to all fans and followers.
