Double podium for Haslam in Brands Hatch second round

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam remains at the head of the MCE British Superbike Championship after second and third places in round two at Brands Hatch on Monday.

“Overall I’m pretty happy with two podium finishes and retaining the lead of the championship,” said Haslam. “We’ve had a mixed weekend in terms of getting the best from the machine but the team worked really well and I’ll take the results and move on to the next round.”

“In the second race I was struggling from lap one again. We’d made a few changes after race one but didn't achieve what we were hoping for.

“I knew that Luke and his set-up had a bit more grip at the rear tyre compared to me, especially out of the final turn, so he was always going to pull away from me after he got past.

“Then it just felt like a matter of time before Iddon and Shakey would come past. It looked like Shakey had a lot more grip than me but he was struggling with the front which probably contributed to his crash.

"I'm happy to get on the podium again but frustrated that we weren't able to completely fix the issues but we’ll move on to Oulton in two weeks and chase the victories there.”
