Haslam battles to Oulton Park double podium

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam took third and second places in Sunday's two races of round 10 of the British Superbike Championship at Oulton Park, Cheshire.

“I wanted to continue my winning streak here at Oulton but with what happened on Saturday in qualifying, a third and second doesn’t sound too bad.

“Race one was difficult, the visibility coming from 23rd place on the grid was really tough, there were a few areas I had to push on but I had to be really cautious from where I was and I think third was the most I was ever going to get.

“I thought I had the pace in the wet and dry to challenge for a win. Jake had really good pace early on and I managed to pull back a six or seven second gap in the second race, but I just didn’t have enough laps to push for the win. It took me a bit too long to get past the other guys and there were a few damp patches that stopped me taking risks early on.

“Now I’m looking forward to the final two races at Assen and Brands Hatch.”
