As the ASBK pitch prepares for the official test under the lights at Sydney Motorsport Park this week, there will be an iconic ASBK athlete who is regularly absent from both the test and this year’s competition.

South Australian Daniel Falzon and his family who run JD Racing apparel have made the decision not to participate in this tournament and suspend the sport.

There are many reasons, including increased commitment to work for all team members, as Daniel details below in this statement.
