The New Zealand Superbike Road race Championship signed off at Taupo Motorsport Park last weekend by the end of the weekend new champions were crowned in all seven classes. Jaden Hassan took the Superbike title . Not to be overlooked are the six other class winners.
After nearly winning the 125GP and Supersport title on several occasions , but just falling short .After eight years of racing and six years of national level racing and still only twenty years old Jaden Hassan took out his first championship , the main prize . In only his second year on a Superbike , Jaden Hassan became the 2015 New Zealand Superbike Champion .
Hassan dominated the weekend at Taupo Motorsport park , by taking pole and winning race one on Saturday from Christchurch's James Smith and Wellington's Sloan Frost , in the process taking back the lead in the championship from 2014 Superbike champion Dennis Charlett.
Race one on Sunday was the first chance that Hassan had to seal the championship. All looked good until on the warm up lap , he lost a knee slider , pitting to have a new one fitted , he would have to start from the pit lane.
Once the pack passed the pit exit , Hassan put his head down and started his charge towards the front , it was a championship winning ride to remember , not easy in anyway , working his way towards the front every lap setting close to lap record times and picking off riders till eventually taking the lead and the championship in the process from Dennis Charlett who finished fifth in the race. Sloan Frost took second in the race and Nick Cole third.
In the last race of the championship Hassan took another win from Christchurch's and two time NZ Champion John Ross and Sloan Frost.
