Motorsport: Netherton racer Josh Caygill looks for better luck at Oulton

NETHERTON racer Josh Caygill heads for round three of the British Superbikes Championship looking for a change of fortune.

NETHERTON racer Josh Caygill heads for round three of the British Superbikes Championship looking for a change of fortune.

Riding this season with the Vancraft Triumph team in the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship competition, Caygill had to work hard in round two at Hampshire’s Thruxton circuit, and finished in 22nd place.

The second race brought a similar outcome as Caygill qualified in 25th place and again finished in 22nd position.

With the next round at Oulton Park over the weekend of May 5-6, Caygill will be hoping to make a bigger impact.

“The Thruxton meeting started well for me and I ran well during free practise on Friday when it was dry,” said Caygill.

“It was then wet on Saturday and we made a lot of changes on the bike to try and get a good set up, but we did struggle to get a set up that worked well for me on the Triumph – we made a lot of changes over the weekend and never seemed to get the ideal one.

“I hope things will be different at Oulton as I want to keep improving and moving forward.”
