It was another solid weekend for Luke Mossey and the Teccare Profile Triumph team at round 11 of the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship at Silverstone Circuit. Luke gained a fourth and third place respectively in the two Supersport races.
Luke has always had good results at the GP circuit and was keen to continue his form here this weekend. He was fourth in the first free practice and first in second practice on Friday but with an overnight weather change Luke struggled during the wet qualifying session on Saturday and had to start the first sprint race from 18th place on the grid. He got a fantastic start and was up to 11th after lap one, he worked hard and rode one of his best races of the season to come through and finish in a stunning fourth position.
He started from seventh place for the main race on Sunday and was through to third by the end of the opening lap. By lap two he was in second position and fought hard to catch the leader Glenn Irwin, he brought the gap down from lap two of 1.4 seconds to 0.2 on lap eight. His team-mate Luke Stapleford and Alastair Seeley all began to catch the leader and soon it was a four bike battle for the win. Luke briefly took the lead and was soon being pushing by Stapleford for second place. The trio fought it out until the end and Luke crossed the line only 0.8 behind race winner Irwin.
Luke Mossey - "I was looking forward to coming to Silverstone and leaving with some good results. Once again the weather played its part and all my serious injuries have occurred in the wet so I always try and ensure I bring the bike home, my confidence is re building now and despite being so low on the grid I was able to work my way through the pack and was happy with fourth place after that.
I knew the conditions were set to be dry on Sunday and I was eager to try and take another win here. It just wasn't to be Glenn (Irwin) really did ride well and hats off to him as I did try and make a few moves but each time he fought back. My team-mate was also locked in the battle and there were a couple of occasions where I had to brake suddenly to avoid any collision. It was a great race and I secured another podium, it's such a shame I suffered a dislocated shoulder at the opening round of the Championship. I am looking forward to Brands and hope to end the season with a couple of podiums.
