Round eight of the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship was at Cadwell Park, Luke Mossey from Cambridge on the Teccare Profile Triumph had a tough weekend. In the first race on Sunday he was battling with the leaders for a win but with only two laps remaining and lying in third place, he was caught by his team-mate and crashed out. In the horrendous wet weather conditions on Monday he was unfortunate to crash out of the race from seventh place.
The weekend was going well for the 21-year-old at Cadwell Park and his times in all the sessions put him up near the front. He qualified in fourth place for race one, he got a good start and was through to third after the opening lap. He made a pass on his team-mate Luke Stapleford for second and then a stunning pass on race leader Billy McConnell on lap three to take the lead. He proceeded to lead the race until lap six, and then dropped to third when Graeme Gowland made a move. He was sat in a comfortable third place when on lap nine his team-mate made a mistake and caught the back wheel of Luke, forcing him to crash out of the race.
He started again from fourth place for the second main feature race on Bank Holiday Monday and in the shocking weather conditions Luke was wary but keen to gain a finish in the wet. He got a steady start but dropped back to eighth at the end of the first lap, he moved through to seventh but crashed out on lap six putting a quick end to his weekend.
Luke Mossey - "I'm so disappointed with this weekend and leaving with no Championship points, I was really pleased with my performance in race one and was looking at a solid podium finish. I know Luke wouldn't have taken me out on purpose and I was stunned when I knew it was him but it is just one of those things. He apologised as soon as he saw me and said sadly he made a mistake but I paid the price.
I am always a little cautious in the wet conditions as previously I have sustained the injuries I have in these conditions. I was a little wary at the start of the race but was sitting in a fairly comfortable seventh place and I just hit a patch of water and crashed out. I want to forget about this weekend and move onto Donington Park."
