Winning Weekend at Snetterton

It was another fantastic weekend for the team. Alastair Seeley this time took the double win in both Motorpoint British Supersport races with Ben Wilson gaining third and second places.

Alastair was in great form on a track that he has been particularly strong at in previous years. He set ultra quick lap times during practice putting him in a comfortable pole position. He led from the start in race one taking the win by a great 5.3 seconds. In race two he took the lead on lap two winning this time by 3.7 seconds regaining his lead in the Championship.

Ben also had another great weekend and is now third in the Championship. He made a strong start with Alastair in race one but the bike sufferred a technical problem but he managed to nurse it home for a good third place. Despite setting some fast lap times in race two he was unable to reel Alastair in and finished in a strong second place.

In the Pirelli National Superstock 600 class it was another awesome weekend for Luke Hedger who had his first pole position and then secured another second place promoting him to second in the Championship. Mark Wilkinson continued his good form achieving his best qualifying position and again finishing in his best position of sixth place.

Team Manager Michael de Bidaph - "I'm really pleased again with the results that we have secured and with Alastair back leading the Championship and Ben up to third the team are very happy. Alastair was on form all weekend and he does love Snetterton and holds the lap record here. The test was really useful and from the offset they were both riding well. Ben was unfortunate in race one with a small bike problem causing him to miss out on a potential second place but two wins and two podiums in such a difficult class is a great achievement for us. Luke had another really good weekend, he's disappointed having been strong all weekend not to get the race win. He still rode a fantastic race and for his rookie year in this tough championship is doing a great job for the team. Mark continues to settle well into the team and is improving every race. This is only his third race for the team so we are really pleased with what he is achieving. I'm really pleased for the whole team as they all work so hard and put so many hours in so getting results like this makes it all worthwhile."
