Tyco Suzuki Take Positives From Snetterton

Taylor Mackenzie raced to best result of the season with fifth place in Sunday’s 15-lap British Supersport Championship race at Snetterton in Norfolk onboard his Tyco Suzuki GSX-R600.

The 21-year-old Scottish rider came through from the third-row of the grid and collected a 20-point-haul from round three of the championship after a seventh in Saturday’s Sprint Race; which lifted him up the rankings to seventh in the championship standings.

Taylor Mackenzie:

“I’m really pleased with that second Supersport race this weekend. The bike felt great; probably the most comfortable I’ve been on it all year. I’ve made a few little changes to my pre-race preparations and they have helped me come-out of the blocks a lot quicker in the opening couple of laps. Thanks to the whole team for another great job this weekend; the next round at Knockhill now can’t come soon enough.”

British Superbike team-mates John Hopkins and Josh Waters were also in action at Snetterton aboard their Tyco Suzuki GSX-R1000s: American Hopkins finished ninth in race one and seventh in the second 16-lap encounter. Australian Waters finished 10th in race one, but was forced off the circuit in the opening exchanges of race two, but he re-grouped and fought back through the pack to finish 10th.

Hopkins currently holds eighth place in the championship standings just 10 points outside the magical top sixth, with Waters currently 14th.

John Hopkins:

“I feel like we have made good progress with the chassis and I was actually having to sit-up and literally wait on the guys in front at times to peel into corners today as we were carrying so much-more corner speed. Unfortunately we didn’t have the grunt this weekend to just power past them on the straights, which means we closed-in then dropped off in different areas of the track; and that was frustrating.

“At least we were in there fighting and moving forward. I’ve come back fitter and stronger and we must now focus on the next round at Knockhill and improve on these results and get up to the sharp-end and start pushing well into that top six in the championship.”

Josh Waters:

“It’s been another tough and frustrating weekend but also good to score two top-10s. We’ve been working to try and find a comfortable set-up with the Tyco Suzuki GSX-R and although the results don’t maybe reflect it at the minute, I’ve also been putting in a big effort. Full credit to the boys in the team as they are working hard alongside me in the garage.”

Philip Neill – Team Manager:

“It wasn’t one of our better days but we did find some positives from the weekend. We also made improvements and have been working hard to find the ideal set-up for both riders and we believe this weekend provided a useful insight for both John and Josh.

“Qualifying wasn’t ideal for John and he had work to do, and although he made some mistakes, it was good to see him fighting back at the end of both races. He could quite easily have finished top-six, which is encouraging.

“After a difficult start to the weekend with a hefty crash on Friday, Taylor worked hard in both Supersport races. His fifth place in race two, after making some strong passes and a personal best lap time, was a very pleasing way to end the weekend.”
