It was a successful weekend for Josh Daley Racing team at round six of the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship at Thruxton. After a nightmare weekend at Brands Hatch a few weeks ago Josh was able to gain a strong fifth place and then was unfortunate to crash out of sixth place in race two.
Josh was happy when he saw the heavens open on Saturday morning as he is very confident riding in the wet conditions. He was third in the Evo class but 11th overall on the main grid for the Sprint race on Saturday. He got a good start and pushed hard throughout, he ended up finishing fifth in the Evo class in the dry conditions and was ready for race two on Sunday.
He was 20th on the grid for the main race and got a good start and was eighth Evo rider and progressing through the pack with some strong lap times. He moved his way through to sixth in the Evo class but sadly lost the front at Campbells and crashed out.
Josh Daley - "I can't be disappointed for this weekend as we worked hard and got some good times and some good results. I was disappointed to crash out of the second race but my times were 2.1 seconds quicker than any time I did here at Thruxton last year. I have taken a lot of positives out to the weekend and it has done my confidence a lot of good. I am looking forward to getting to Oulton Park next weekend, do some more learning and start pushing further forwards. I enjoyed both races and thankfully I've not done much damage in the crash as it is a quick turnaround for Oulton this week. I must thank my Dad for all the help and support he has given me and working so hard on the bike all weekend. I feel happy and want to keep moving forward and progressing."
