Josh Daley had another consistently good weekend at round seven of the Motorpoint British Supersport Evo Championship at Thruxton Circuit. The youngster was ninth in the opening sprint race on Saturday and a good seventh place in the main feature race on Sunday.
Josh worked hard throughout the weekend with help from his Dad with set-up and knowledge and advice from others around the paddock the youngster was able to make good progress. He continued to improve in each session and qualified in 10th Evo place for the first Sprint race on Saturday. Josh was locked in a battle during the 12 lap race for eighth place with Matt Paulo and Tommy Philp, finishing in a strong ninth.
He started from 22nd place on the grid for race two on Sunday, he got a fantastic start and was fifth Evo after the opening lap. Josh was fighting hard on the super-fast Thruxton Circuit and was in a huge battle throughout the race, battling for positions. On lap eight he had to take evasive action to avoid a crashed rider and this dropped him back to eighth position. He managed to re-group and work his way through to seventh after the 18-laps.
Josh Daley - "It was a really good weekend at Thruxton and once again I was able to improve my times in every session out on track. I also managed to set a personal best around the fast circuit this weekend in the feature race on Sunday. In the second race I was on the back of the leading Evo group for the majority of the race until I got held up avoiding another riders crash.
I am really happy overall and it is good to keep going to every circuit and keep learning, setting faster times than I did last year and getting some good results at the end of it. I huge thanks to everyone that always helps me I really appreciate it."
