Josh Waters Finds Big Improvements At Thruxton

Posted:

Bennetts Suzuki‰Ûªs Josh Waters raced to a positive top-10 position at Thruxton and round seven of the MCE British Superbike Championship on Sunday.

The Australian enjoyed a positive weekend on his Bennetts Suzuki GSX-R1000, making progress with the set-up of his machine and big improvements in his lap-times.

Despite the team's gamble not paying off in qualifying, Waters progressed from his 21st place grid-spot and fought through to finish in 14th place in race one.

Things improved further in race two when he kept pushing forwards and was battling well inside the top-10. Starting the last lap, Waters held eighth and made a move for seventh. However, he made a small mistake with his pass and dropped back to 10th at the chequered flag, but was buoyed with his and the team's progress throughout the weekend.

‰ÛÏIt's a shame that the gamble in qualifying didn't pay off as we had to start from further down the field, and with lap times so close, passing is difficult around here." Waters commented. "We had a decent race one and made-up some positions.

"Race two was good and I really enjoyed riding the bike and the battles on track. I was looking to get a really good top-10 finish but I just made a small mistake on the last lap trying to make a pass and in the end it cost me.

"But the team has worked really hard and the progress is now evident for people to see. We'll keep working with the aim of getting even further-up the results.‰Û
