Penalty sees Ward handed podium spot

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Sport -

Tom Ward warmed-up for the fi­nal round of the Dick­ies Bri­tish Su­pers­port se­ries this week­end with his first podium of the sea­son at Assen, Hol­land.

The Lit­tle­bourne rider put his Aero Le­gends/go Rac­ing De­vel­op­ments Ya­hama on the third row of the grid for the opening race in which he fin­ished 13th and in race two he came fourth be­fore a 60-sec­ond penalty for cham­pi­onship leader Keith Farmer saw him el­e­vated to third.

Wing­ham’s Ross Twyman was fourth in the sprint race.

After putting his EHA Rac­ing Yamaha R6 on row two in the sec­ond race, tech­ni­cal prob­lems meant the bike lost power from the start forc­ing him to pull in.

The fi­nal round takes place at Brands Hatch this week­end with Twyman sixth over­all. Wing­ham’s Carl Mitchell in rac­ing ac­tion at Snet­ter­ton, Nor­folk, over the week­end
