Guiver came third in class in Race 2 on his Triumph Daytona 675R today (Sunday 11th August 2013) at Oulton Park. It was his second podium of the weekend after a win the day before in the sprint race. As the only Cup class rider to finish every race this season, his consistent results have finally paid off.

The Ace Cafe T3 Racing team had seen constant improvement from Guiver and the Ace Cafe Racer bike over the weekend but, despite taking the lead in the championship today, he finished 20th overall after a small mistake cost them another good result.

The team were positive thanks to their rider feeling confident on the bike and posting consistently faster lap times in each session across the race weekend. There had been some issues with the bike on Sunday morning when an oil leak was discovered. This was soon fixed though and the team were grateful they found it in warm up rather than during the race.

Guiver had a good start to the race and managed to start overtaking early on. It was on lap one that he ran off the track at Cascades putting him in 21st and out of the fight.

He managed to start catching the pack and had lap times fast enough to put him 15th or higher, but was still disappointed with his final position of 20th:

"I got a good start for once and was making a couple of passes, then just lost the front out of Cascades and ran off the track. I was just miles away from anywhere. But we brought the bike home and we’re leading the championship which is the main thing."

Team manager, Ricky Chadwick, also commented on Guiver’s performance:

"He got a good start in that race which is what we’ve been looking for, unfortunately he just lost the front and lost so much time at the end of the day. But we’re in a much better position now then we were at the last round and the plan is to keep moving forward for Cadwell."

Tony Scott, Team Principal and Director of T3 Racing, feels the pieces are finally coming together for them:

"I think it’s like a jigsaw puzzle, finally the picture is beginning to appear. We got a good start in that race, that was followed by a bit of a mishap which put us right at the backend but nevertheless the positives are Rob’s starting to get it off the line, he’s starting to produce the lap times, he’s found what he was looking for in the bike.

"A very famous racer once said to me, the most important thing is you enjoy riding the bike and Rob is starting to enjoy riding the bike, so I think we’re just onward and upward from here now. One point lead in the championship, we need to hold on to that and take it all the way to the end of the championship."
