It was a mixed weekend for Luke Mossey and the Teccare Profile Triumph team at the final round of the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship at Brands Hatch. Luke could only manage 16th place in the wet opening race and was seventh in race two.
Luke has had some bad luck in previous years at Brands Hatch in wet weather conditions, breaking his arm, losing the tip of his finger and dislocating his shoulder all in three different incidents at the Brands circuit.
The weather certainly played its part for Supersport and Luke took the brunt of it only managing to qualify in 14th place on the grid, just before the opening sprint on Saturday the heavens opened again and the race was declared wet. He got a good start but sadly dropped backwards through the pack and despite his efforts could only gain 16th position.
Sunday was dry and Luke was eager to made amends for the previous day, he got a great start and was soon challenging for a podium position. He was dicing for second place with Glenn Irwin. Luke made a couple of mistakes and then ran really wide into turn one which nearly saw him end up in the gravel, he managed to fight it back onto the track and he had to settle for seventh.
Luke Mossey - "This wasn't really the way I wanted to end the season I was hoping for a couple more podiums. I was gutted the rain came on Saturday but pleased to have finished the race in those conditions with no injuries. I didn't want to push too hard this weekend as there was nothing to gain, I didn't have a Championship to win.
I am in the process of talking and testing for next year and it was important that I left Brands in one piece. I have a couple of good opportunities for next season and hope to be able to make an announcement shortly.
The season has been mixed again after I dislocated my shoulder at round one but once again managed to come back strong gaining eight podiums along the way. I really want to thank all the people that have helped me, my Dad, all my mechanics plus all my sponsors that have put their faith in me again this season especially Teccare."
