James Ellison was left thor­oughly dis­ap­pointed as an­other dif­fi­cult week­end saw him drop out of a top six cham­pi­onship po­si­tion with just two rounds re­main­ing before the Show­down cut off.

De­spite flashes of pace across the week­end, Ellison con­tin­ued to be plagued by the power de­liv­ery is­sues both he and his team-mates have en­dured over the past few rounds. A fur­ther prob­lem with how his ZX-10R be­haved when the tyres started to wear left him walk­ing away from the week­end with just a ninth and tenth place to his name.

“Given a bike that works I can run at the front,” he told MCN after the second race. “If there’s some­thing miss­ing on the bike, that’s out of my con­trol.

“I feel I’m get­ting let down a lot by things that are hap­pen­ing out of my con­trol so we need to get to the bot­tom of it. Hav­ing dropped out of Show­down con­tention through no fault of my own is re­ally frus­trat­ing and hard to take, so we need to work to­gether to find out what is go­ing wrong to see if we can fix it.”
