Podium return for Ray
Podium return for Ray

It was a positive weekend all round for Lydd’s Bradley Ray taking two podium finishes on his GSX-R1000R Superbike at Oulton Park.

Ray – racing with renewed enthusiasm after making a big step forward with setup and confidence at Cadwell Park.

Ray had a go at leading all three races before finishing second in Saturday’s race one.

He backed it up with a fourth in Sunday’s opener and another second place finish in race three.

Speaking after the weekend, a delighted Ray said: “It’s been a pretty incredible weekend to be fair. After the positive weekend we had at Cadwell I’d have been happy to have come here and kept building on that confidence and come away with a few top-six finishes, so to be leading races and picking up a couple of podiums is incredible.

“Massive thanks to the team – they’ve not stopped working to get us to this point and have kept trying to help me feel more comfortable on the bike so it’s great to be able to reward them with some silverware.

“I think we’ve found a good base setting now and hopefully we can carry this on into Assen. Congratulations to ‘Coopes’ and the team on the Superstock championship, too; they’ve been consistently winning races all season so big well done to them.”
