Hil­lier reck­ons he was robbed

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

James Hil­lier lost out on a podium fin­ish by just 1.6 sec­onds.

The Kawasaki star said: “It pisses me off los­ing the podium by less than two sec­onds af­ter six laps. It’s gut­ting.”

Hil­lier cir­cu­lated with Ian Hutchin­son af­ter the Bingley Bul­let closed the 10-sec­ond gap be­tween them on the road.

“Hutchy and I caught a back­marker who didn’t do any­thing wrong but he went through the flags much slower than we would have,” Hil­lier ex­plained.

“I feel we’re knock­ing on the door and car­ry­ing good pace.”

A slow-fill­ing pump was blamed for the team’s slow pit­stops and it was changed, But or­gan­is­ers re­fused to al­ter the re­sult.
