Mixed fortunes for Haslam at Oulton Park third round

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam took a third win of the year before crashing out of race two in the MCE British Superbike Championship third round at Oulton Park in Cheshire on Monday.

“Everything was going well after a good win in the first race then, well, that was a big crash in race two," admitted Haslam. "I felt comfortable in the second race and I was making good progress catching up with James Ellison. Then I came out of Druids and was flat out in fourth gear, going about 150mph, when I briefly saw James sit up but there was absolutely no time to react. 

“James pulled to the right when his bike cut out and that was it. It’s one of the biggest crashes I’ve had in a long time. Thankfully, despite being pretty sore, I’m OK and nothing is broken. The air bag in my leathers went off straight away which made a massive difference to me walking away.

“We’ve got a long break now until Knockhill and I think my team might need that time to rebuild my bike as it was totally destroyed - we were all lucky to walk away.”

Ends.
