Good Points at Brands Hatch

More good points were gained at round four of the Dickies British Supersport Championship at the Brands Htch GP circuit. Ben Wilson secured a fantastic fourth place and Ross Twyman 10th Supersport rider in race one. Ben was sixth in race two with Ross 12th.

Ben had a good weekend and was continuously improving his lap times managing to qualify in 7th place for race one. As the race got underway it began to rain and the race was red-flagged. It was re-started as an 8 lap wet race. Ben got a fantastic start and was away with the leaders and as the rain became heavier he briefly moved to the front and was fighting hard for a podium but just missing out to finish fourth.  

He started from 8th for the second race but despite his best efforts was unable to push to the front and had to settle for a solid sixth after making a stunning pass on the final corner on the final lap to gain two more places.

Ross had a small crash during qualifying which lost him some precious time on track qualifying in 16th place on the grid for race one. He rode a strong race to finish 10th Supersport rider. For race two he started from 15th to finish in a good 12th.

Team Manager Michael de Bidaph - "We continued the progress we made at the last meeting now that we have gone back to our original bikes and Ben had a strong weekend scoring valuable points.

Unfortunately Ross is still not comfortable with the bike and we are all working hard to find a solution as we all know what he is capable of achieving".

Good Points at Donington Park

It was a new weekend for the team at round three of the Dickies British Supersport Championship at Donington Park. The team made some big changes to the bikes which saw the riders have a much stronger weekend than at the previous two rounds. Ross Twyman was sixth in race one and seventh in race two. Ben Wilson was eighth in race one and a fantastic fourth in race two.

It was the first time using the new set-up so it was mainly a testing weekend. Ross and Ben spent practice and qualifying trying to get a good feeling with the bikes. Ross manged to qualify in 14th and Ben next to him in 15th. They both got good starts with Ross moving to 10th after the opening lap and Ben in 12th. They worked exceptionally hard during the race to work their way through the pack with Ross securing a strong sixth place and Ben in eighth.

For race two Ross started from 10th with Ben 12th. Ben got an awesome start and was soon on the back of the leaders but thay edged away slightly as the race progressed but he was still able to secure a fantastic fourth place, his best result of the season so far and a great achievement after missing three years of racing due to injury. Ross worked his way through the pack after dropping back to 12th after lap one but he kept his head down to finish in a strong seventh place.

Team Manager Michael de Bidaph - "As i said at Oulton Park, we felt it would be better to continue with our old 600 Supersport bikes now we have the extra power.

Whilst we are still not where we want to be i feel that we have made a significant step forwards with both riders scoring some valuable points in both races. I am sure that we can now keep making progress with the bike that we know so well."
