EHA Racing Aprilia mounted Luke Hedger took eleventh place from today’s National 1000cc Superstock race at Silverstone during round ten of the 2017 series. He currently holds eighth place in the championship standings with two rounds remaining.
Speaking afterwards Hedger said:
Overall the weekend has been very disappointing for me and my guys in the EHA Racing team. Lack of track time and inconsistent weather didn’t help us out with bike set up – that’s the long and short of it. My qualifying let me down and it was a hard race. We had the pace at the end of the race, but I was too far back at that point to make it count We are looking towards Oulton this coming week now, where we know we have good pace.
Gail Allingham – Team Manager:
We were hoping to finish a bit higher than our eleventh place with Luke today. He was running the same pace as the leaders at the end of the race, so we know we are capable of running at the front on the EHA Racing Aprilia, it just didn’t happen for us today. We have two races at Oulton so we will be pushing for our maiden podium. Thanks to all our sponsors for their continued support.
The penultimate round of the championship takes place this coming weekend at Oulton Park in Cheshire.
