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!

Luke Verwey: 
“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!”
