Double Podium at Donington Park

The first round of the long awaited Quattro Group British Supersport Championship took place at the Donington Park National Circuit. The team were keen to make a good start with both James Westmoreland and Ben Currie putting in consistently good times during the practice and qualifying sessions. James qualified in 3rd position with Ben 6th on the grid.

For the first race James and Ben were dicing for podium places with James finishing in a great 2nd place. Unfortunately Ben was forced to retire with a mechanical problem.

The second race saw James in 5th position on the grid with Ben 6th. It was an action packed race with Ben having to start from the back of the grid after the bike stalled just as the lights turned red. After another green flag James stormed into the first corner fighting furiously to keep the pack behind at bay.

Ben was devilish in his manoeuvres as he had to now work his way back up the rankings, with a slight tip onto the green paint, he received time penalties. But he still carried on fighting and his hard work did not go unrewarded as he took the chequered flag in 11th place (7th in class), gaining valuable points.

James brought the Gearlink Kawasaki back in style keeping his position throughout to finish in another podium 2nd place. With two strong second place positions he has got some good solid points in the bag and lying second in the Championship.

Thank you to all our team and rider's personal sponsors and look forward to the nexrt round at Snetterton to continue the fight.
