Cadwell Park – Specsavers Suzuki

The Specsavers Suzuki team headed to the very technical Cadwell Park circuit this weekend with Leon Jeacock on the Superbike and Bjorn Estment on the Superstock machine.

This is Leon’s bogey track, but he had a good weekend despite a crash and continued to improve all weekend. He managed to qualify for the opening race in 25th place and came through to finish in 21st position. For race two he started from 23rd place and finished in the same place. For the final race of the weekend, he started from 24th place and had made up a few positions when he unfortunately crashed out, unhurt.

Leon Jeacock – “All-in-all it was a good weekend, although I crashed in the last race, decking the engine cover down and losing the front.

I’m actually very pleased, Cadwell is my worst track by far, having had a massive crash there in 2012, I missed many years going to Cadwell and for years have done my best to miss the meeting and not ride there.

To leave with a 1:27:7 and battling with people who won British Championships, I can take a lot of positives onto Snetterton.”

Bjorn exceeded himself this weekend and scored the first Championship points for the Specsavers Suzuki team by finishing in 15th place in the race. It was a tricky start with the track being totally different to Thruxton, so it took a couple of sessions to make the correct set-up changes, but they made drastic steps forward each session.

Bjorn qualified in 15th place for the race on Monday and he got a good start and was locked in a close battle, he fought hard and pushed right until the chequered flag to secure 15th place and one vital Championship point for the team.

Bjorn Estment – “I’m pleased with the ride I had in the race and happy to secure the first ever point for Specsavers racing. I’m a little disappointed as I was struggling with a technical issue throughout the race which possibly cost a few positions. 

Altogether a solid performance from the weekend and taking confidence into Snetterton in a few weeks. A huge thanks to the team for all their efforts – I wouldn’t be able to do it without them and all the people who continue to support me.”
