Promising debut for Andrew Pitt and Motorpoint Yamaha at Mallory Park

Posted:

Andrew Pitt brought along experience to the Motorpoint Yamaha team and some strong results at round 5 of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at Mallory Park to build on.

Mallory Park is with out doubt the toughest track to start your season at specially if you have never seen the place and been off the bike for 3 months.

the Australian showed his professionalism with the way he worked through settings to get the bike more consistent for race day and raced strong with the top six in both races.

In his debut with the team Pitt finished 8th in race 1 and 10th race 2.

‰ÛÏI am pretty pleased to get this weekend finished, this is the only track I have ridden this bike at and it is definitely not a Superbike circuit! The local guy‰Ûªs know their way around this track and if you‰Ûªre not totally flat out from the flag with a good start you really struggle to get through," Pitt explained.

"I am a bit frustrated with the end results but I think we all worked well for our first race together, the bike is getting better and the team and I are getting to understand each other which will set us up for the next race.

"I am happy we have a race next weekend as I can get straight back to work and continue moving forward," Pitt concluded.

‰ÛÏIt was always going to be a tough one for Andrew, to land at Mallory for your first race with the pace of the BSB championship was a big challenge," team owner Rob Mac said.

"We all thought he did a great job, a little better starts would have seen him run top six and for his first time here at probably the worst track for our bike bodes well for the rest of the season.

We faired much better than some of our competitors with the Mallory jinx catching out the Worx Suzuki and the Swan Honda teams, with this job you need to have some luck, Mallory stretches that theory more than normal," Mac ended.

Both race were won by HM Plant Honda rider Ryuichi Kiyonari with Pitt's Australian compatriot Josh Brookes finishing second on both ocassions.

The MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship continues next weekend at Knockhill.
