Ant Moore had a solid weekend and continued to improve on his times in each session out on track. He qualified the Specsavers Suzuki in 38th position and rode hard to finish in 27th place. This put him in 33rd place on the grid for the second race of the weekend and he was riding well but was forced to retire to the pits with a problem on the final lap not wanting to risk any further damage to the bike.

Ant Moore – “I’m a little disappointed with my results this weekend. A few positives have been taken though. My pace was getting quicker, my fitness can easily manage a full race distance. The team were amazing, everything is there for me to progress. I’m looking forward to Oulton Park where I will be ready to dig deep for some strong results.”

Team Manager – Ant Moore – “It was our debut weekend this weekend at Silverstone at BSB. Our plan was to familiarise the team with how the superbike series operates. We have an amazing team of technicians that worked hard on the bikes and the set-up. 

The Specsavers Suzuki’s were prepped perfectly for every session. I think our bike livery and garage set-up looked great and we had a lot of positive feedback from the fans and the BSB staff.

We took some strong steps forward in both the Superbike and Superstock classes and we are confident for some stronger results at Oulton Park the next round.”
