Podium For Daley In Supersport Evo DebutNews From Intek Adhesives/Sgr Racing

THE Intek Adhesives/SGR Racing team is celebrating after new arrival Josh Daley scored his maiden Motorpoint British Supersport Evo podium at Brands Hatch - just a week after joining the team.

Daley, 17, of Wigan crossed the line third in the first race of the weekend at Brands Hatch on a bike which is little more than a Superstock machine, and his first ever outing in the hard-fought class. He backed it up with a ninth in class in Monday’s feature race

Daley’s team-mate, Jake Bayford also scored a point in the Motul British Motostar Championship onboard his Honda 125 machine, giving the Northumberland-based team a solid start to the season. Unfortunately, Jason Vernon narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship race in his rookie event.

For Daley, the weekend began with reports of heavy rain on Sunday just in time for his first race of the weekend. Having just joined the team a week before the season started, he is still running a Stock bike, and he knew that if he got a wet race he would be in a good place to fight for a podium.

Having qualified 17th overall and fourth in class, Daley got a good start, holding his position until Lap Nine when he started to make a move. He made up a couple of places within a few laps and by Lap 12 found himself in a battle for 14th overall and second in the Evo class with David Allingham on the Yamaha.

As the pair continued to swap places in the closing laps, it was Allingham who had the legs on the teenager, and Josh had to settle for a third place in class. Race Two on Easter Monday proved a harder fight for the youngster, as he struggled with his stock machine in the dry, eventually bringing it home ninth in class. He now sits third in the title chase as the series prepares to head to his home track, Oulton Park in less than a fortnight.

Meanwhile in the Motostar race, Jake Bayford enjoyed a steady race to bring his machine across the line in 25th spot overall and 15th in class, giving him his first point of the season.

Josh Daley: “I really enjoyed that first race, I wasn’t sure what to expect because we’re down on power at the moment but it was a great start to the season. I went there having just joined the team a week before the first race and I wanted to just qualify and see how I got on, so to get on the podium in my first attempt is way more than I’d expected.

“It bodes really well for the rest of the season. Now I’ve got a couple of races under my belt I know what we need to work on, and I’m hoping we’ll have a more competitive bike when we get to Oulton. It’s a track I quite like so I’m excited to see how we get on there, and I just want to thank Steve and the team again for giving me the chance to ride this year, and hopefully we can secure the funds to keep going.”

Team Owner Steve Kinghorn: “It’s been a great weekend, Josh has had an amazing few days and for him to be on the podium on a stock bike is pretty incredible. I’ve always known he was a talented young rider but he really stepped it up here. We are now hoping we can get his bike in a better position to really make a challenge at Oulton Park.

“At the moment we are still looking for businesses to get behind us and help sponsor him so we can get him through the full season. Josh is very talented rider with a very bright future, and it would be a crime if he was denied the chance to run all season. That top 10 finish surely can’t be far off.

“Young Jake also did a fantastic job on the 125, he’s come away with a point which is far more than he’d expected and although we were disappointed that Jason didn’t manage to get through to race in the Superstock 600 race, we know where we need to focus so we can make sure he gets up there at Oulton Park.”

*The Intek Adhesives/SGR Racing team will test at Oulton Park this coming Friday ahead of Round Two at the Cheshire circuit over the weekend May 3-5, 2014.
