WOODFORD motorcycle rider Troy Guenther is set to have a place on the podium of the Australian Superbike Championship in the Supersport class in Winton from September 30 to October 2.
Guenther is currently in second place on 194 points, just eight points behind Sam Clarke. If he places above Clarke somewhere in the top 10 over the weekend, he will most likely take out the 2016 Championship title.
"For me the goal is just to head up for the weekend and take it race by race,” he said.
"It'd definitely help to win both races.”
Guenther had the better of Clarke in race two at Morgan park in August, beating him to the top of the podium by nearly three seconds.
But the 17-year-old said he would go into Winton with the mindset that any rider could take out first place on the day.
"On the track I don't think anyone's your friend,” he said.
"There's a lot of good riders on the track.”
Feeling confident on his Yamaha YZF-R6, with his team and at the newly resurfaced track, Guenther expected an enjoyable race.
"Heading into Winton we don't plan on changing anything, because everything we've done so far has worked,” he said.
"We went down for a test two or three weeks ago.
"With this new surface, it's quite enjoyable to ride. The layout itself has got a lot variety and changes of direction.”
