Wayne edges closer to championship lead

Sunday - Race 1

Having a second row start was not ideal to claw back some championship points. Wayne got a reasonable start and held his fifth position on lap 1, then on lap two he passed two riders and held third place for the remainder of the race. This was a great result with Wayne still suffering arm pump, so to gain some championship points on Herfoss and also be on the podium was a good start to what has been a tough weekend for the multiple champion.

Wayne said: “It was awesome to get Yamaha 1-2-3, to do it here on Sunday it awesome, struggled a bit with my forearms again and dropped off towards the end.”

Sunday -Race 2

This race was filled with a few drama’s, Wayne was in 4th position when his teammate Cru Halliday crashed of which the race was red flagged. The restart saw the Yamaha’s start from pit lane of which Wayne had to go through the field in the 6 lap dash. After the combined times Wayne finished in 3rd position and closed in on the championship lead. The weekend was not the best, but to claw the championship back to just 3 points behind Herfoss was a great result on Sunday.

Wayne said: “It just goes to show how strong the Yamaha is by finishing 2-3 after starting from pit lane for the second part of race two and doing the fastest lap of the day, this is a bad weekend for me and I look forward to Wakefield Park. ”
