Strong points for Ray
Strong points for Ray

It was a weekend which yielded solid points-scoring results for Buildbase Suzuki at Oulton Park and round three of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship with Bradley Ray taking fourth and seventh placed finishes aboard the new GSX-R1000 Superbike.

Ray started from the third row of the grid after a crash in the final qualifying session on Sunday but made a strong start in race one to get away with the leading group. He was in podium contention until the closing stages but was pushed back to fourth.

Starting from the second row in race two, he was again in podium contention, but dropped back to seventh after struggling with tyre wear in the warmer conditions.

Speaking after the weekend, Ray said: “We said after Donington we won’t win them all, and it’s easy to forget we’re only three rounds in. We were just missing a little bit today with our setup that meant we didn’t have the final few tenths-a-lap needed to fight for the win.

“But the results were strong results and gave us some good points. The team also tried some bits this weekend that have given us a focus for the next test. But all-in-all it was a solid outing and we’ll look to improve when we’re back after the break.”
