Luke Hedger rounded out a tough weekend at Snetterton with ninth place in the National 1000cc Superstock class aboard the EHA Racing Aprilia, maintaining his sixth place in the championship standings after six rounds and 11 races on the 2017 calendar.
Candidly honest, the 21-year-old rookie explained afterwards:
My weekend was very tough and we struggled pretty much from day one. We just couldn’t find the set-up we needed to go fast enough to challenge at the sharp end, but on the positive side, I managed to bag myself another top ten finish. We also took some good points for the championship and are still top six which is another big positive both for me and EHA Racing. I’d like to thank Ian and the whole team for all their hard work over the weekend and my personal sponsors for continued support.
Team Manager Gail Allingham added:
Luke did a good solid job this weekend and he once again achieved that consistent top ten finish and sits sixth in the championship. We just didn’t get the ideal bike set-up today, but we weren’t too far away. We are still very much wanting a podium with Luke and have full confidence that it will come very soon. Well done to all the team and thanks to our sponsors and supporters that made the journey to watch us this weekend.
