Haslam returns to podium at Brands Hatch

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam finished third and fifth in Sunday's sixth round of the MCE British Superbike Championship at the Brands Hatch circuit in Kent.

“It’s been a tough round as it’s the first weekend back really since Oulton Park in May. We made some good progress but always felt on the back foot. The podium in race one was better than expected considering the issues I had, but I felt the changes in race two weren’t the right way to go and I had to settle for fifth.

“The positives are, we finally got to test some different chassis set-ups, tyre life in the SC0 tyre was better and we were the top Kawasaki in both races. I’m racing at the Suzuka 8 hours this weekend which is important but I’m also looking forward to going testing when I return to get everything ready ahead of the next BSB round.

“A big thanks to everyone at JG Speedfit Kawasaki, I’m confident we will get back to winning ways soon.”

Ends.
