Australian Honda factory rider, Melbourne's Adam Fergusson looks set to become the latest in the seemingly unending group of young Australian motorcycle sensations to tackle the World Stage.
Speaking on last Tuesday nights edition of ³In Pit Lane² on Melbourne's Channel 31, the factory Honda rider and current leader of the Australian Super Production Motorcycle Championship told guest host Simon Thomas of his ambitions to contest the World Superbike Championship.
Fergusson also explained to "In Pit Lane" viewers the difference in specifications between the motorcycle he currently rides in the Australian Championship as opposed to the machinery in the FIM World Superbike Championship.
Adam, who this year finished 4th as a wildcard in the Supersports event at the Australian World Superbike round at Phillip Island, admitted that while trying to remain focused on his commitments in Australia, he has been in discussion with various World Supersport teams with the view to racing internationally next year.
The chance to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Corser, Bayliss, Anthony Gobert, Peter Goddard and Matthew Maladin by competing on Superbikes in either America or England, also remains a distinct possibility.
