Taylor clocked in a fastest time of 1:49.429, ahead of Seth Crump (Rockoil, KTM RC 390) who finishes Day One with the second fastest overall time of 1:49.768.

Reflecting on the day, Taylor couldn’t be happier with the overall result, highlighting “It was an excellent day! Today saw me start afresh with a new bike and team, and I am so thankful for Demmery Motorsport and my mechanic because they have worked so hard on my bike. Today was the first day on the bike and it handled beautifully.

“Tomorrow I’m planning to remain consistent and work with my teammate, Zac Levy. It’s really great having Zac as a teammate! We feed off one another on and off the bike, and this weekend will be especially valuable in preparing us both for Round 1 later this month,” explained Taylor.

bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup

The first ever practice session for the bLU cRU Oceania Junior Cup, kicked off the day as the first time Motorcycling Australia’s Junior Road Race Academy program had ever taken to the track.

Damien Cudlin led the field out for their first two supervised laps before waving the field past and unleashing the 25 youngsters onto the Phillip Island circuit for the very first of their practice sessions.

The first untimed session gave the kids the chance to feel their way around the circuit and the bikes at their own pace, before the timing started and the young riders started to come to grips with how the bikes handled.

Fastest time of the day went to Lucas Quinn (2:15.668), ahead of Grenfell and Carter Thompson.
