Qualifying crash puts paid to Adon Davie’s Oulton Park weekend

 In News

The second round of the 2023 British Superbike Championship took place over the Bank Holiday weekend at Oulton Park in Cheshire, with Adon Davie a notable absentee from the events two Supersport races.

A solid start on Saturday saw Adon running comfortably at the 2.7-mile circuit, confident of another front running performance aboard his JDF Racing Ducati Panigale V2. However, a crash in wet qualifying put paid to any hopes of the talented Scot making the grid. Despite a valiant effort by the team to repair the bike, the new qualifying rules implemented for the event meant that there was no chance of improvement in Q2, with Adon having to reluctantly cut short his weekend.

As always, the #38 rider is taking the positives and already fully focused on Round 3 at Donington Park in a few weeks.

Adon Davie:

“Well that’s not what I wanted or expected from the weekend. A crash at Lodge corner in qualifying meant that we didn’t have a time fast enough to put us on the grid. With a packed grid there was no space to allow us to even start at the back and that cut short our weekend. I am really disappointed as I was looking forward to a wet qualifying and race and felt really good on the bike after practice. I would like to thank the team, my mum, dad, Neil, and John for all their hard work. I am already looking forward to Donington Park in a few weeks and hope to put a few things right.”
