SECOND BEST RESULT OF THE YEAR FOR LUKE VERWEY AT OULTON PARK
Luke Verwey took three solid point scoring finishes at Oulton Park this weekend, saving his best till last with an excellent ninth in the final encounter at the 2.7-mile Cheshire circuit.
Fourteenth in both of the opening races, Luke made additional changes which paid off in Race Three, the #76 XG Racing Group rider claiming his second-best result of the year ahead of the next round of the British Junior Supersport Championship at Donington Park in a fortnight.
In terms of the overall championship Luke’s Oulton results lift his points tally to thirty-six with two rounds and five races remaining!
“The first two races at Oulton were ok. I made alright starts but basically it was like fighting a losing battle. I started catching a few people, but it was a massive group ahead and a real dog fight. We made small changes from race one to race two, but it never made much of a difference. The third race was better. I started fourteenth. I was able to build my pace as the race progressed and was able to lap much more quickly. I made a mistake and ended up doing the new long lap which was annoying. I finished ninth after passing three people on the last lap. I was happy with my riding and my race craft and with the way that I was able to pre-empt what my rivals would do which enabled me to make the overtakes. I am really looking forward to Donington Park, it’s one of my favourite tracks so see you there!”
