Kade Verwey moved to within 13 points of the British Junior Supersport championship lead after a win and a third place finish in the latest round of the series at Snetterton in Norfolk over the weekend.
Qualifying on the front row for the opening 8 lap encounter on Saturday, Kade rode a solid race, clinging on to third at the flag by just over a quarter of a second.
Sunday’s race was action all the way, the #7 converting another front row start to a podium finish, this time the win in the longer 10 lap race.
The results, his 4th and 5th podium finishes of the year respectively move him 30 points clear of his nearest challenger as the championship moves to Knockhill in Scotland in July.
“The weekend started with a few niggles but in the end I was able to put it on the front row. Race one was good, another podium and good for my confidence. I had a good chat to Leon (Haslam) after the race and was confident for Sunday. My race two start was shocking. I dropped to sixth where I stayed for the first couple of laps. I found my rhythm and caught and passed the group ahead. I got hit at the hairpin which dropped me back again. On the last lap I was up to third when the first two collided and I took advantage which was happy days for me and good for the championship. Big thanks to my team, all my supporters. Already looking forward to Knockhill.”
