2018 Bennetts British Superbike Championship – Round 8 – Cadwell ParkBy R&G in Superbike on on 23 August 2018



 

Stunning Cadwell Park played host to the latest round of the 2018 Bennetts British Superbike Championship over the weekend and once again Championship leader Leon Haslam stamped his authority on the R&G-protected JG Speedfit Kawasaki. Qualifying on the front row, the ‘Pocket Rocket’ went on to secure both race wins to claim maximum points again and extend his lead at the top of the standings. 

 

Gearlink Kawasaki rider Ben Currie had an equally successful weekend in the Dickies British Supersport class, taking second place in the opening race before going to win the Feature race on Sunday afternoon. 

 

It wasn’t just in the main classes where our R&G supported riders and teams shone however, as Hel Performance British Motostar Standard rider Thomas Strudwick enjoyed a double podium ahead of his appearance at the British Talent Cup this weekend at Silverstone. In the one make Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup, both Levi Day and Rob Guiver added to the R&G trophy haul with each rider taking a win and a further podium across both races.  

 

2018 R&G Rookies’ Trophy – Round 8 – Cadwell Park

 

The incredibly physical Cadwell Park circuit proved a real challenge for those riders making their debut at the circuit in their respective classes, not least having to face the infamous ‘Mountain’. 

 

It was an impressive weekend from City Lifting/RS Racing’s Jack Scott, who claimed pole position in the Hel Performance British Motostar class before going on to take victory in the opening race before a red flag thwarted his chances of doubling up in the second race. In the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 class, former R&G Rookies Champion Joe Collier rode struggled to match his front running pace from previous rounds, but a mature ride to fifth in the race means he sits just 8 points behind the Championship lead.  

 

With a number of impressive rides throughout the paddock, it was a tough decision to choose just one rider to be our R&G Rookie of the Meeting however Eurosport’s James Whitham picked Superstock 1000 rider Claudio Corti as the Cadwell Rookie. A notoriously difficult circuit to learn, Corti impressed everyone with how quickly he learnt the Lincolnshire track, securing his best result since joining the series. 

 

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;
