06 May BSB Oulton Park: Podium for Ellison Once Again!
After another podium for Five gloves pilot James Ellison and the JG Speedfit Kawasaki team, they left Oulton Park leading the British Superbike Championship standings.
Ellison said: “We started on the second row so I had to fight my way through the others and with nobody making any mistakes it was really hard to do something. Tommy [Bridewell] went down and then with the collision with Kiyo and Shakey, I felt comfortable behind them but we weren’t fast enough just to make a move because nobody was really any slower than anyone else, it was just a game of cat and mouse.
“It was a really tough race but hopefully exciting to watch for the fans and Stuart (Easton) rode a great race. I was waiting for him to do something silly but he never did, he went tight on the last corner which is where I was planning/hoping he would and I had in my mind that I was going to make a move on the outside but there was just not enough grip.”
Five and Gaerne pilot Billy Mcconnell had two solid top ten finishes.
