Top 10 finishes for both Mason and Foray at Brands Hatch
|Monday, 09 April 2012 18:59|
In an incident packed afternoon both Mason and Foray finished their first BSB race of the season in the top 10. Making the better start Mason moved as high as 4th during the first lap, only to lose out on positions later due to the slippery conditions. Making his way back through the pack in the last third of the race Mason finished in 5th place and earned a front row start for Race 2.
In his debut for Quattro Plant Kawasaki, and BSB, Freddy Foray had an excellent qualifying session and started from the second row of the grid. Again another excellent performance throughout the race for the Quattro Plant rider saw him cross the finish line in 9th place.
Mason Commented.” I am delighted with this weekend’s result. To come away in the top six and on the front row of the grid for the re-run is the best possible start to the season. Coming to Brands Hatch we were a little on the back foot with testing, but we managed to pull it all together when it mattered, which is fantastic for the team.”
He also added.“We have three days before Thruxton, so we need to keep working on our chassis development and build on our great start.”
Foray said.” The track conditions today were very slippery. After my 20th near miss I managed to stay focused and change my riding style, so I really pleased with my top 10 finish, but a little disappointed I could not go faster. The bike is performing well, but we still have to make some changes to get it where I would like it to be. My 9th place is a good result for me and the team.” Looking to the next round he added.” I have never been to Thruxton and Gary (Mason) tells me it is a fast bumpy circuit, so unlike this weekend, where we have had additional track time, I have a lot of work to do in a short space of time. It should be fun and I am looking forward to it.”
