Twenty six points thanks to a pair of fourth place finishes at Silverstone yesterday keeps Kade Verwey in contention for the 2018 Dickies British Junior Supersport Championship title with just four races remaining.
Qualifying on the front row of the grid for the opening race, the XG Racing Kawasaki rider was once again part of the leading group in both encounters at his local circuit before losing touch with the top three to cross the line in fourth in the day’s two races.
Comfortably ahead of the chasing pack Kade heads to Oulton Park for the penultimate round next week still holding second position in the overall standings, 31 points behind the leader with 100 still available before the final chequered flag of the year is waved.
“I had two similar races at Silverstone. I got away the leaders putting in a good first few laps but i couldn’t get below 1.06s lap times and they slowly crept away leaving me in a lonely fourth. I had to just chill and not make mistakes as the points are important for the championship and I didn’t want to crash. Hopefully I can come back stronger at Oulton to keep the championshiip alive.”
