18-year-old Josh Daley had a positive weekend at the opening round of the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship at Donington Park. The youngster is one again riding in the Supersport Evo class on a Kawasaki. He was hindered all weekend with an old leg injury he sustained at the end of last year in which he damaged the ligaments in his ankle. He secured two 13th Evo places in the two races.
Each session showed improvement but he was struggling with time on the bike due to the injury. He ended up qualifying in 27th place for race one and he battled hard throughout the short race to move forwards to 22nd and 13th Evo bike.
He started from 29th on the grid for the main feature race on Easter Monday and once again he battled hard to bring the bike home in 23rd place in the main class and 13th Evo bike.
Josh Daley - "I am really pleased to have left Donington and the first round with two solid results. The weekend was troubled by the torn ligaments in my leg and ankle, I thought I was ok as the crash was months ago but it reared its nasty head this weekend and caused me trouble in each session. I hope to get some physio and sports massage before the second race in a few weeks time.
I felt good on the bike and once again each time I went out on track I managed to improve my times so I hope to keep pushing forward throughout the season. Thanks again to my Dad for all his help this weekend and also all the sponsors that have continued to help me for this year."
