Category raced in 2016: Australian Superbike Championship
The 2015 Australian Supersport Champion made his premier class debut on the Knobby Underwear/Royan Truck & Trailer Repairs Suzuki GSX-R1000. Elliott scored five top 10 overall placings, with a best round result of fourth at Wakefield Park thanks to a 6-6 card. Elliot finished the year in sixth place overall, first privateer rider home and just 10 points off the factory Ducati rider Mike Jones – a result he can be very proud of. This year he will ride for CF Motorsport in the British Superstock 1000 Championship aboard a Yamaha YZF-R1.
Elliot is one of the most liked characters in the ASBK paddock. The quietly spoken New South Welshman was always a positive presence at the ASBK rounds, and even appeared at different events such as the final round of the Supercar Championship at Homebush, showcasing both himself and his team sponsors very professionally. Elliott will be a huge credit to his new UK team in 2017. Let’s hope he can go all the way in one of the world’s most cutthroat championships.
