Victory and championship lead for Haslam at Oulton

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam leads the MCE British Superbike Championship after a win and a second place in Sunday's two races at Oulton Park, Cheshire on Sunday.

"Race one was difficult," said Haslam. "I got off to a good start but then pretty much everyone came past me. After that I felt like I got into quite a good rhythm and I managed to catch up with Shakey and Josh. At that point, I was hoping for third or fourth place but then I caught up with Dan and John and in the end I was gifted the win so it was an unexpected but a really important victory for us.

“In race two I had to keep telling myself to keep pushing especially when Brad Ray was nipping at my heels for the last few laps. Even though the conditions weren’t great in race one or race two because of the wet patches, I felt like I rode really well.

"A big thanks to everyone at JG Speedfit Kawasaki, we did what we needed to do and, although it was frustrating not to win the second race after coming so close, at least we can move on to the next round with smiles on our faces.

"I’m looking forward to Assen. It can be very weather dependent and its cold this time of year but we managed a double win there last year so we know that the potential of the bike is good. However, there are so many people in the Showdown challenging for a place on the podium that anything can happen but that’s what makes it so exciting this year."

Ends.
