2018 Bennetts British Superbike Championship – Round 7 – ThruxtonBy R&G in Superbike on on 08 August 2018



 

As the 2018 Bennetts British Superbike Championship entered the second half of the season, the paddock took a trip to our local circuit, Thruxton, for round seven. With baking temperatures, the highly abrasive circuit was a battle of tyre conservation but despite the tricky conditions our R&G supported riders enjoyed a very successful weekend.

In the blue riband Superbike class, series leader Leon Haslam took his maiden win at the Hampshire circuit in the opening race whilst rookie rider Mason Law secured his best results of the season so far – earning him the title of our R&G Rookie of the Meeting in the process!

A further victory came at the hands of Ben Currie on the Gearlink Kawasaki in Supersport, whilst Asher Durham and Thomas Strudwick added to the silverware with podiums in the Motostar and Motostar Standard classes. After a bit of a break, the Dickies British Junior Supersport Championship was back in action and a pole position followed by a pair of seconds saw Eunan McGlinchey take the series lead!

2018 R&G Rookies’ Trophy – Round 7 – Thruxton

One of the fastest and most challenging circuits on the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, Thruxton is not for the faint hearted but despite this being their first year, our 2018 rookies did not let that stop them!

Tarran Mackenzie continues to impress in the Superbike class, with that maiden podium looking increasingly likely. Two fantastic rides from Mason Law has seen him leap up the standings and become the second rookie behind Mackenzie.

McGlinchey moving to the top of the standings in the British Junior Supersport class means he’s now leading rookie whilst Joe Collier continues to strengthen his position in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 class.

The new look formula for this year means that the top two rookies in each Championship at the end of the season will be put forward to a panel of judges, who’ll then pick the top three overall to receive a host of prizes from R&G, Pirelli and LS2 crash helmets. The current two leading rookie riders in each class after Thruxton is as follows;
