Ant West 2017 Race Season


Anthony West has done the unthinkable in round one of the 2017 World Supersport Championship (WorldSSP) at Phillip Island. 

Ant and his team didn’t even expect to race with constant set-backs and complications all the way through testing to the race weekend. In the end, Ant borrowed a bike off a friend, Liam Coleby, just to be able to race! Ant's bike was visibly slower on the straight than any other bike on the grid but Anthony never gave up and delivered an awesome result with a podium finish! 

The race:
The first race had been reduced from 21 laps to 15 laps because of the concerns of the control tyre making full distance. This decision alone made the fight to the front of the field DIFFICULT FOR Anthony whom started, 22nd on the grid; however, by the second lap Ant had made himself into 7th place, only to have the race red flagged.

The team then waited for a decision on the race distance and start position. The call came from race control where the new race was reduced to 10 laps and starting from Ant’s original position. The fact that Anthony came from 21 in ten laps to finish 3rd and make the podium in a World Championship is amazing.

This just proves that Ant has what it takes to win a World Title in 2017, and that is the exact goal. 

Ant is not only looking for support to get to round 2 in the WorldSSP 2017, but for the whole 2017 race season. Any donation, big or small, goes a long way. The world of racing has changed and it is up to riders to bring in big sponsors or pay up big just to be able to race. Ant wants to keep doing us all proud and bring home a World Title for Australia, so let’s all get behind him and help support our Aussie rider.

Let’s keep the dream alive!
