Leon still on top as he secures double podiums at Brands over Easter

Round 2 – Brands Hatch

April 14 – April 17

The “Pocket Rocket” remains in the lead of the MCE British Superbike Championship after second and third places in round two at Brands Hatch on Monday.

      Qualifying: 3rd – 44.933s
      Race one: 2nd – +3.529s
      Race two: 3rd – +1.851s
      Best race lap: 45.371s – race one
      Championship: 1st – 86 points

“Overall I’m pretty happy with two podium finishes and retaining the lead of the
championship. We’ve had a mixed weekend in terms of getting the best from the
machine but the team worked really well and I’ll take the results and move on to
the next round.”

“I knew that Luke (Mossey) and his set-up had a bit more grip at the rear tyre
compared to me, especially out of the final turn, so he was always going to pull
away from me after he got past in both races.”

“I’m happy to get on the podium again in both races but frustrated that we
weren’t able to completely fix the issues but we’ll move on to Oulton Park in two
weeks and chase more victories there.”

Round 3 – 29th April – 1st May Oulton Park
