The Specsavers Suzuki team were at the penultimate round at Donington Park this weekend with Leon Jeacock in the British Superbike class and Bjorn Estment in the National Superstock 1000 class.
It was a difficult weekend for everyone as consistent rain on Friday cut track time very short and it was left to FP3 and qualifying to find a good set-up on the Specsavers Suzuki.
Leon managed to qualify in 21st place for the opening race and was 24th in that. He was placed in 25th on the grid for race two and finished in 20th then for the final race of the weekend he started from 24th place to come through and finish in 18th.
Leon Jeacock – “All-in-all I have had a good weekend, there were a few issues we had with the bike in race two but again we have dug deep all weekend and made improvements and learnt more about a new track for me on a Superbike.”

Bjorn Estment continues to go from strength to strength in the Superstock class. It’s an extremely competitive class this year, like every year but Bjorn has stepped up his game and risen to the challenge.
He had a good qualifying session and started race one from 10th place, he was locked in some close battles and managed to finish in a strong 11th position. For race two on Sunday, he started from 13th on the grid and once again was involved in some close battles to finish in 11th.
Bjorn Estment – “It was a great weekend on board the Specsavers Suzuki at Donington Park. Really pleased with two solid 11th places, it was a great points haul and I really enjoyed it, we’ve made some great progress since I was lucky enough to join the team and I can’t wait to finish the season on a high note at Brands Hatch.
Thank you to the team and everyone involved making this happen!”
The Specsavers Suzuki team would like to send their thoughts to Chrissy Rouse and hope he’s able to make a good recovery.
