Linfoot seals BSB Showdown place

 
 
Print2014 BSB, BSB R09, Donington Park, UK.
The R&G-protected Quattro Plant Kawasaki team enjoyed a solid ninth round of the MCE British Superbike Championship at Donington Park on Sunday with Dan Linfoot sealing his place in the final three round ‘Showdown’ and team-mate Howie Mainwaring scoring a pair of strong point-scoring finishes.
 
Yorkshire’s Linfoot had all but secured one of the coveted Showdown places – which will see the leading six riders contest the Championship in the last three rounds – coming into the meeting but still needed to confirm his position mathematically and he duly did that in the first 20-lap race with eighth place. With some strong lap times during the race, Dan started the second race from the advanced position of seventh.
 
Fully utilising his grid spot, the 26-year old jumped up to sixth place at the conclusion of the first lap and this became fifth on lap seven. Running in the top half dozen riders like he has done for much of the year, another excellent result looked to be heading his way but a clutch problem at half race distance began to affect his pace and when it stopped working altogether in the closing stages, he was powerless to do anything about it and slipped back to 14th at the chequered flag.
 
However, the Championship points for the top six riders are now re-set to 500 with the addition of the podium credits they’ve accrued in the first nine rounds. It all means Dan lies in sixth place on501 pts with the pace being set by Shane Byrne on 562 and the title will now be decided with a straight shoot-out between the six ‘Title Fighters’ over the next three rounds.
 
Dan Linfoot: “I’m a bit miffed with how this weekend’s gone and whilst it’s been nice to finally confirm my Showdown position, the results here at Donington haven’t been what I wanted. I’ve had a bad feeling with the front all weekend, particularly from the Old Hairpin to McLeans and although I could make up time towards the end of the lap, I was losing too much time through the fast stuff.”
 
“I just couldn’t run the pace I wanted and in the second race, just when I looked like getting a half decent result the clutch went. I didn’t want to pull in so persevered until the end and at least got a finish. It’s all about the Showdown now though and it will be nice just to be able to concentrate on racing. I’ve got three rounds and seven races to impress and give the front boys as hard a time as possible.”

TESTIMONIAL: KAWASAKI ZX-10R (2004) HIGHSIDE AT CASTLE COMBE

Check out this picture of R&G customer, Peter Burch. If only this rear wheel slide was on purpose and had a happy ending. But here’s what Pete had to say about what happened next…

“I just wanted to drop you guys a line to say thank you for the excellent protection you provide.

“I managed to highside my 04 ZX-10R road bike at Castle Combe circuit. Normal scenario; fast group, 2nd gear, 100mph, full throttle cranked over before the start finish and then the rear lit up as you can see in the picture. I am pleased to say that 1) I am ok but more importantly 2) so is the bike.

“The highside catapulted me in the air in front of the bike, which then caught me up and crashed with me onto the grass on the left side of the picture. Your protection on the front forks and bar ends most definitely saved my bike from a lot of damage. You can see where they have taken a lot of weight and prevented any damage to the forks, clips-ons and exhaust. 10637704_10154565715455226_288298655_n

“The bike was bodged enough for my friend to ride the bike 60miles home to Southampton a few hours later and he reported that the bike was still straight. Being a body panel beater/painter, my friend assured me that your products saved my bike from being much worse off.

“As for me, I am walking wounded with bruises and nasty friction burn to my left hand where my glove came off underneath the bike when it landed on top of me and came to a stop but all in all I am perfectly fine.

“I have used your products before (notably ZX-7R crash a few years ago) and will definitely continue to use your products in the future. I will add some Aero Crash Protectors to the ZX-10R once I have arranged new panels.”

TESTIMONIAL: Kawasaki ZX-10R (2013) – Two Lowsides!

IMAG4624 IMAG4625   

Poor Krystian Lobodziec and his very tasty Kawasaki ZX-10R haven’t had a lot of luck lately, but he says if it wasn’t for R&G products it could have been a lot worse.

“A couple of weeks ago I lowsided my 2013 Kawasaki ZX-10R at an RAF Odiham (Hampshire, England) Airfield Riding Day whilst riding in the fast group and the R&G Aero Crash Protectors, Cotton Reels and Engine Case Covers did an excellent job protecting the right hand side of my bike. 

“Then a week or two later when on the road, I lost the front-end when a car decided to suddenly change lane and stomp on the brakes in front of me causing me to crash on the left hand side of the bike. Again, my bike was well protected thanks to R&G. Your products are great and saved me fortune.”
