“I’m really happy with the overall end result here at Thruxton. We knew it was going to be a tough weekend as it was one of my worst weekends last year on the Kawasaki.”“Race one was reduced to only 10 laps and the hard compound tyre just wouldn’t work for us on that distance versus the other riders on the softer tyre,” reported Haslam. He continued: “Similarly, race two got reduced to 18 laps but we managed to fight through for a podium place. I managed to gain podium credits and points at my worst circuit of the calendar and I must say a huge thanks to all my team at JG Speedfit for working so hard all weekend.”“I am now looking forward to the remaining rounds which are at circuits where we’ve previously performed well. We had a good test at Cadwell and I have a week to rest after what has been a tough few months!”
