LUKE VERWEY: BACK ON TRACK AND BACK IN THE POINTS AT THRUXTON
After missing the last round of the British Junior Supersport Championship through injury it was a satisfying points scoring return for Luke Verwey at Thruxton this past weekend.
Improving his lap time significantly from Free Practice to Qualifying, Luke claimed tenth on the grid before bagging thirteenth in the opening ten lap encounter. Not shy when it comes to rubbing fairings, Luke dug deep, fighting hard from start to finish to add an additional three points to his overall championship tally.
Confirming some small technical issues were encountered during Saturday’s race, Luke was geared up for making an even bigger impact in today’s second race. Sadly due to the British Superbike Championship race being red flagged and restarted after a lengthy delay, Race Two was cancelled.
“Race 1 was ok but I honestly expected to be fighting closer to the front. We had some quick shifter issues and that really held me back. I started tenth and finished thirteenth which is not ideal as I don’t like to go backwards in the race but there was nothing I could do. I was really looking forward to Sunday’s race but unfortunately it got cancelled. I think with no problems we could have had a much better race as in the first race I was running close to the top six before the issues came. That’s racing and it was good to be back out there after missing Snetterton. Already looking forward to the next one!”
