POINTS IN BOTH BSB RACES FOR LAW AT SNETTERTON
BSB rookie Mason Law posted his best British Superbike Championship weekend to date, scoring points in both races at the Norfolk venue with twelfth and thirteenth placed finishes aboard his GR Motosport prepared Team WD-40 Kawasaki. The Benfleet lad said of his weekend…
“Yeah it was a busy weekend as always, but a very solid weekend for us as a team. Although I think my honest opinion is, we are all a little disappointed, as we believed there were single figure positions to be had in the races. I couldn’t quite capitalise in the temperatures, which meant we had to use the SC1 tyre. We knew for us it was the slower tyre and it honestly took me a bit longer than I should have to adapt to it. I prefer the SC0 [zero] for corner entry grip, but on the positive side, I was very consistent with my lap times. In race two especially it took me a little too long to get going.”
Recounting the races around the fast a sinuous 2.9-mile Snetterton circuit, Mason explained: “In race one I started really well. I managed to avoid the pile up and was tenth when the safety car came out, but that’s the one occasion when it did take me too long to adapt to the SC1 rear tyre: I lost a few positions when it all got going again at race speed after the sedate pace behind the car. I settled in towards the end of the race and caught a few of the guys in front and finished 12th which we were very happy with.”
Speaking of race two he added: “In race two we started from sixteenth on the grid, but again I got caught napping a little. It wasn’t until the closing stages of the race that I managed to get back on terms with them. I ended the race 13th and I suppose if you’d said before the weekend, that we would come away with these results at Snetterton, I’d have shook your hand.”
Looking ahead he concluded: “It’s certainly very positive and shows where we are at, at the minute, and how positive we all are as a team, but we are expecting more now. I’d obviously like the thank my whole team [everyone involved at GR Motosport] and the crew involved on my side of the garage. We had a few hiccups this weekend but we managed to overcome them. Thanks to all the team partners and everyone who gets us to the grid; we can now look forward to Knockhill in a couple of weeks’ time up in Scotland.”
