Levi Day (Boast Plumbing) made up for yesterday's brake woes and 3 consecutive non-points finishes to take a well-deserved win in Race 2 at Oulton Park today.
Starting from the front of Row 2, Day had a fantastic start to take the lead on the opening lap, one he did not relinquish until he crossed the chequered flag, in a big boost to his championship standing and his team's morale.
Pole-sitter Rob Guiver (Ducati Romford / Hyside Racing) failed to get off the line well but battled back into contention from 5th. Guiver closed down on Day in the closing stages of the race, only to have back-markers deny any chance of challenging for the win.
Sean Neary (Zoek Racing Team) put in another strong ride to claim the final podium position, with Highspark Motorsports' Lewis Rollo and Phil Atkinson claiming 4th and 5th respectively.
Neary's two podium finishes see him leave Oulton Park leading the championship with 95 points. Guiver now sits 2nd with 86 points and Wainwright 3rd with 78.
Levi Day (Boast Plumbing #57) - 1st
“I'm glad to be back on the podium. I would have been happy with a top 3, we have had a few minor glitches during races which are hard to rectify. It’s nice to get another race under our belts and claw back championship points. The pace is there. We just need to keep working hard for Snetterton and hope we can get back on the podium again.”
Rob Guiver (Ducati Romford / Hyside Racing #13) - 2nd
“I ain't got a clue how to start these things, I need to really work on my starts! I gave myself loads of work to do. To be fair, the pain started a lot earlier, about 4 or 5 laps into it. Mid-race I was trying to dig in, trying to pass people but really struggling. I see Levi, got a rhythm together, I was catching, catching. I got caught up with the back markers real bad, it sort of sealed the deal with the race really. But if you'd have told me two 2nd places coming into this round I'd have took that all-day long. So, really, really pleased and I've moved up the championship. Roll on Snetterton.”
Sean Neary (Zoek Racing Team #10) - 3rd
“That'll do to be fair. Levi got away, set a really good pace and it took me a while to get through and I was chasing down Rob. But fair play to him, he can't even open a bottle of champagne and I still couldn't catch him! Massive thank you to the Zoek Racing Team. You know I'm happy with third. A great weekend.”
