Adon Davie unbeatable at Brands Hatch

 In News

Adon Davie rounded out his 2022 Ducati Tri-options campaign with a maiden win in the penultimate round of the series at Brands Hatch.

One of the fastest on track on the opening day, Adon romped to Pole Position with an advantage of almost 1.5s over the rest of the field. Revelling in the mixed conditions he lined up on the grid as the favourite.

A solid start saw him slot into second position for the opening couple of laps before a spate of fats laps, at times more than two seconds faster than anyone on else on the circuit, enabled the talented Scottish teenager to take the win by almost twenty seconds – the greatest winning margin of the season!
The result also gave the #38 Pole Position for the final race of the year which took place on Sunday. Unfortunately, Adon was unable to finish Sunday’s race after a recurrence of an earlier season technical fault had him on the side lines.

Nevertheless, Davie is pleased with his season and elated to secure a race win, which he dedicated to the memory of Chrissy Rouse.

Adon Davie:

“It had rained overnight, and the track was still wet for qualifying. I was on wet tyres and just built up my speed lap by lap. I felt good and at one point my advantage was about three seconds. I took my first Pole in a few years which was great. Just before the race it was drizzling, and the track was greasy. I went with a wet set up and settled into second from the start. I didn’t panic and I was able to close in on the leader. I made the move and basically then just raced my pit board. The gap grew quickly, and I was able to win by over seventeen seconds. I dedicated the race to the memory of Chrissy Rouse who I think it’s fair to say has touched everyone in the paddock, especially John (my team owner). Unfortunately, on Sunday the issue we had a few races ago with the throttle re-appeared and so my race was over before it even began which is a shame as I really thought we could fight for the podium, if not the win. I want to thank everyone that has helped me this year and I am excited to see what the future holds for me.”
