London, United Kingdom, September 06, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Round 8 of the British Superbike Championship took place at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire from 25th to 28th August. The exciting Bank Holiday action wasn’t dampened by the rain, as thousands of fans who flocked to the race circuit cheered on their Superbike heroes.
Complete Cover Group’s own hero, and sponsored by the specialist bike insurer, is David Johnson, an Australian who rides for the PR Racing Team.
Earlier rounds of the Championship, in which Johnson races in the Superstock 1000 class, saw some impressive success, with podium finishes at both Oulton Park in May and Knockhill at the end of June (despite sustaining a cracked rib at Snetterton barely a fortnight earlier).
Johnson’s luck ran out at Brands Hatch in July, where he lost rear traction and crashed out of the race. Still recovering from his injuries, he missed out on the podiums at both Thruxton and Oulton Park in August.
David describes his latest race at Cadwell Park:
“I didn't have the best race. I was in the group dicing for third place for the first few laps but had brake issues towards the end and dropped from 7th to 11th.”
But he remains philosophical. “It’s still points on the board – we have to take the positives out of the weekend!”
David is still holding onto an overall position of 7th in the Superstock 1000 standings with 51 points. Leading the field is Danny Buchan with 190 points, who has consistently finished in either first or second place in this season’s championship.
Round 9 of the British Superbike Championship takes place at Donnington Park from the 5th to 7th September.
