Double podium for Ray
Double podium for Ray

Buildbase Suzuki’s Bradley Ray from Lydd took two podium finishes at Cadwell Park for round eight of the Bennetts British Superbike Championship on Sunday. 
Ray claimed pole position in qualifying for the two races, and led for much of them on his GSX-R1000, but narrowly missed out on the wins, finishing second twice. However, he secured a strong haul of championship points and podium credits with one round to go to decide the Showdown top six.

Speaking after the weekend, Ray said: “I’m over the moon to be back on the podium. We’ve had a few difficult rounds for one reason and another but everyone in the team has been working really hard to improve things. We had a good test here the other week and felt confident coming into the weekend, and we were fast from the off really.

“Obviously, pole was a nice confidence booster as well, but in the races it was important to come away with some really good points and podium credits with just one round to go before the Showdown. But I had a good feeling with the bike all weekend and it was good to be able to push with the front boys again.”
