Harrison on pace with stock en­gine

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Sil­i­cone En­gi­neer­ing Kawasaki’s Dean Harrison led a de­cent chunk of Sun­day’s Su­per­bike race, a feat that is all the more im­pres­sive for the young York­shire­man when it’s con­sid­ered he was run­ning a stock ZX-10R mo­tor.

Hav­ing blown two Su­per­bike en­gines dur­ing the week, Harrison was left run­ning his stock en­gine in the Su­per­bike race but it didn’t slow him much as he fought for the lead through­out be­fore cross­ing the line in an im­pres­sive third place.

“I def­i­nitely have the pace to run at the front of the su­per­bikes,” he said. “We were just lack­ing a bit of power up the moun­tain. We blew two su­per­bike mo­tors dur­ing the week so had to re­vert to a stock mo­tor but I’m not get­ting the vi­o­lins out of the bag.”
