ELLISON GETS A BREAK

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

James Ellison en­joyed his strongest week­end of the sea­son to walk away as sec­ond high­est points scorer of the week­end be­hind Shane Byrne.

It’s been a frus­trat­ing sea­son for the Cum­brian so far, who has shown blis­ter­ing pace on his MCAMS Yamaha but been un­able to turn that into con­sis­tent re­sults. While he ad­mits a sixth-place fin­ish in race one isn’t what he goes rac­ing for, the run­ner-up spot in the sec­ond out­ing meant he fi­nally fin­ished a week­end with a solid points haul.

“I think this is the first week­end we haven’t led a race, but I’ll take that if we can walk away with two strong fin­ishes in­clud­ing a podium rather than be­ing on the deck,” ex­plained Ellison.

“It’s been an in­fu­ri­at­ing year, know­ing we are so strong, in a po­si­tion to fight for wins, and then things just not com­ing to­gether. We weren’t able to run with Shakey and Josh this time, but it’s nice to be back on track.”

There were pos­i­tive vibes on the other side of the MCAMS Yamaha garage, too, with Michael Laverty start­ing to make progress af­ter fi­nally cur­ing the chatter is­sues that have been hold­ing him back so far this year.
