The series wound up over a week ago but only now can the real champion be confirmed.
Just this week a change has been made at the top of the Monster Energy Australasian Super X Championship standings, although that, too, is now subject to appeal.
Motorcycling Australia (MA) confirmed that following further investigation from Race Officials, American rider PJ Larsen (KTM) has been officially declared as the Pro Lites 2010 Australasian Super X Champion, displacing Suzuki’s Matt Moss, of Australia, at the top of the final standings.
A mistake was made in the compilation of results at the final round whereby Matt Moss was awarded points despite completing less than 75% of one of the races – as per GCR 12.11.2.
This was rectified by the Steward of the meeting, Paul Foster, and the final results for the Pro Lites Championship are as follows:
1: PJ Larsen 310 points
2: Matt Moss 306 points
3: Ryan Marmont 244 points
MA, on behalf of race officials, would like to apologise to the riders and their teams who through no fault of their own were put through this uncertainty.
However, it may not be settled just yet. Motorcycling Australia has already received an appeal to the published results from Suzuki Australia.
MA was aware of Suzuki’s intention to appeal if there was a change to the results, and as such, in accordance with the Manual of Motorcycle Sport, the results are provisional pending the outcome of the appeal process.
The appeal process will commence immediately, however owing to the holiday period is unlikely that the situation will be resolved until the New Year.
