Silverstone Round 1
Round 1 of the British Superbike Championship began at the well renowned Silverstone Circuit. From the opening session Cameron got straight down to business, getting a personal best lap time putting him 5th on the time sheets. His form continued into the second Free Practice session seeing him shave half a second off his lap time, putting him 3rd on the time sheets. Having built his confidence in the opening Practice Sessions Cameron was confident going into qualifying, knowing how close the field was he needed to put in a good time to give him the best chance for race day. With a quick tyre change during the qualifying session, Cameron was able to push for a lap time putting him 2nd on the grid for the race. After getting a good start in the race Cameron was able to get away with the front runners, battling hard he was able to fight at the front which led to a secure 3rd place finish at the end of the race.
“I’m really happy to achieve my first podium in the Superstock 600 class at the first round of the championship after a difficult first year in the class last year. The race didn’t go as planned at first as there was a red flag incident on the opening lap which caused a quick race restart with a reduced race distance of 15 laps. I knew it would be a battle at the front which soon panned out between myself and two other riders. For the closing laps I was involved in a three way battle for the win, unfortunately I didn’t know it was the last lap because I missed the flag and therefore wasn’t prepared to make a move. However, I’m over the moon for the result and can’t wait for round 2 in a few weeks time. A massive thanks has to go to the Jones Dorling Racing Team for all their support, its a big family and I’m honoured to repay them with some silverware for all their hard work!”
