He raced a full World Superbike Championship season in 1995 for Team Muzzy, struggling earlier in the season with a number of qualifying crashes, but winning one race at each of the Phillip Island and Laguna Seca rounds, taking two 2nds (Salisburg and Laguna Seca) and two 3rds (Salisburg and Brands Hatch) to finish the season a respectable 4th overall and best placed Kawasaki rider.
