Adon wins again at Oulton Park – eyes top three overall in the British Supersport Cup

 In News

A qualifying crash may have put Adon Davie on the back foot in the latest round of the British Supersport Championship at Oulton Park in Cheshire, but that didn’t stop the young Scottish racer from powering his JDF Racing Ducati to another win in the Supersport Cup on Sunday afternoon.

A steady start to the weekend saw Adon building confidence and things were looking good as he safely made it through to qualifying two. Unfortunately, a crash towards the end of Q1, caused by a false neutral saw the #38 crash out of contention, his bike too damaged to continue.

Great work by the team saw Adon line up on the grid for race one but a recurring gear changing issue plus a small issue with the brakes resulted in a retirement from a potential podium finish.

Overnight changes saw an improvement in Sunday morning warm up followed by an impressive race that saw Davie romp to the Supersport Cup win after fourteen hard fought laps by 0.371s at the flag.

The result sees Adon head to the penultimate round of the series at Donington Park fifth overall in the standings, only thirteen behind third!

Adon Davie:

“Qualifying didn’t go to plan. I was sitting second in Q1, and I knew I had done enough to go through into Q2 and so Id planned on coming in when I got a false neutral which put me on the grass, and I went down and hit the wall. Even though I had gone through the bike was too damaged and so we couldn’t take part in final qualifying. That meant I was twenty sixth on the grid for race one which wasn’t ideal. We worked hard to get the bike fixed and with about five minutes to go we lined up for the race. Sadly, the same issue with the quick shifter plagued us and I had a problem with the brakes too. With about three laps to go I was dropping like a stone and decided for safety reasons to pull in. It wasn’t the best of Saturdays, but we turned things around on Sunday. We made some changes with the ride height and with engine braking in the warm up and some things were definitely better. We ended up going in the middle of what we tested in the morning and what we had raced on Saturday. I made a half decent start and stayed out of trouble and involved myself in a three-way fight for the win in the cup. I ended up coming out on top after a difficult and challenging weekend. The target is the top three in the championship, but there are still some riders to miss races and so we will have to see where we stand after Donington in a couple of weeks.”
