Ben Wilson had another solid weekend at Oulton Park gaining a second place podium in the first race and a fourth place in the second. He has now moved to fourth place in the championship.
The team had worked hard all weekend to get a good set up with Ben qualifying in fifth place for the first race. As usual Ben got one of his great starts and was third into turn one. On the last lap the two front runners, Richards and Kennedy, crashed out leaving Ben to pick up a hard fought second. He started sixth in race two and again had a great start and was locked in a battle with Luke Mossey to finish a great fourth.
Dan Cooper was not with the team at Oulton Park in May so had to start from scratch to find the right settings that would work for him. Despite this he had his best weekend for the team with two good results finishing in 10th and 11th place.
Scott Hudson struggled in qualifying for the Superstock 600 race ending in 20th place on the grid. Oulton Park is a difficult track to learn and understand but Scott continued to improve his lap times, finishing a creditable 16th, just missing out on the points.
