Podium at Oulton Park

What a great start to the Bennetts British Superbike Championship for the team with both riderrs solidifying top 10 positions throughout the weekend in the Quattro British Supersports Chanpionship.

Ben started race one from third on the grid and then after some great battling with the leaders bought the bike home in third place to gain our first podium in the first race of the season.A great result for him and the team.

Eunan, suffering with arm pump throughout the weekend, still managed to improve his lap times to finish in a creditable 8th place in race one and 9th in race two. He has made a good start in the Championship to be in 6th position considering this was his first race weekend on a Supersport bike.

Ben started from 7th on the grid for race two meaning he had some work to do to get himself to the front. He provided the entertainment with some awesome overtakes throughout the race managing to bridge the gap to 4th place where he stayed for some laps.

Edging nearer to third he managed to gain that position only for it to be taken from him on the line by just 0.104sec.

After some extremely exciting racing from Ben sees him and the team in third place in the Championship.

The team now move onto Round 2 at the Knockhill Racing Circuit.

Team Manager - Arron Phillips "I am very pleased and could not have asked for a better outcome from the weekend as despite some minor setbacks, both riders came through".
