Haslam suffers mixed fortunes at Cadwell Park

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam took a fourth race win of the year but followed up with a second race crash in Sunday's eighth round of the MC British Superbike Championship at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire.

“Sunday started off well with a win in race one which closed the gap in the championship," said Haslam. "It was a good race and everything went well although it wasn't easy as I knew there were plenty of us going for the win.

"It's been a long time since I was on the top step so it was great to be back there. Race two was a little different as I was eighth on the grid so had to work through the pack.

"It was tough going as I was having problems with back shifting on the gearbox which, in the end, caused the crash. The positives are that we've still gained points in the Championship and some vital podium credits. 

“Thanks again to my team at JG Speedfit and I'm looking forward to Silverstone and getting three races in there."

Ends.
