Lichfield Superbikes star Gary Mason endured a mixed bag of results at Cadwell Park – but admitted he was pleased to finish the weekend on a high.

The MSS Colchester Kawasaki rider was hampered by technical problems in race one at the Lincolnshire circuit, leaving him with an uphill task in the second event.

But the city racer battled through from row six on the very tight Cadwell grid and set about dicing with Stuart Easton for a place inside the top ten.

With consistent laps and some decisive overtaking in a brilliant two lap spell, Mason got the better of Easton and set himself up with a comfortable margin to bring his bike home in tenth.

The Lichfield rider said:

“I’ve got to be happy with that [tenth in race two] after the weekend we’ve had and the grid position I started from. We struggled all weekend with lots of niggly problems and it held us back all through qualifying, which has a big knock-on effect in this championship because it is so close.

“A new engine for race two made all the difference because it made the bike feel a lot sharper and I’m pleased for the boys in the team who worked so hard to get the bike rebuilt in those two hours between races. The result is a positive and I’m really looking forward to Croft now.”
