All the action from Cadwell Park
There were never less than two GSX-R750S in the podium positions as Liam Mccarter blitzed to three wins from three starts at Cadwell
SUZUKI GSX-R750 stalwart Liam Mccarter predicted a Superstock win for himself and his oil-boiler after round two at Pembrey.at Cadwell Park in mid-june his prediction came to fruition not once, but three times as Liam took a full house of wins at the Lincolnshire circuit. He now heads the points table from Derek Cripps and Danny Imberg, who missed Cadwell, by four points.
“Danny wasn’t there because he, well not actually him, was having a baby,” Liam told
PS. “So the wins were there for the taking. I didn’t get such a good start in race one [Saturday – JM] and when I looked over my shoulder Chriswhite was there 10 lengths behind and Derek was up there too, so I had to pull my finger out.
“My GSX-R was faultless all weekend, which was great because my Maxtontz350 melted. I’m on Metzeler M7RRS now [like Danny] and they grip right from the start. They move around a bit at the end of the race, but they’re the things to have.”
As well as taking a hat trick of wins, Mccarter further stamped his dominance on the meeting by setting the fastest lap in each
outing and taking the flag by over four seconds in the first two races and over eight seconds in the third. Liam is now fully fired up for the remainder of the season.
“I’m going to do all the rounds now and see how I get on. Danny’s three weeks off has given me a bit of an edge, but we’ll see what happens. It’s a cool series.”
Chriswhite on his beautifully prepared HONDAVFR750F got closest to Mccarter, and proved his Mallory podium was more than just lucky, with a brace of seconds and a third, solidifying his fourth place in the points table in the process.
Cadwell’s final podium challenger, Derek Cripps, who took a second and two thirds, kept his GSX-R at the sharp end of the field all weekend despite still suffering fuelling issues with the Suzuki.
“The bike’s getting better with each round, but it’s still got a horrible flat spot despite changing nearly everything trying to fix it. Tyre choice had a lot to with it. I started on Avonam22/23s because it looked damp, then put the Super Corsas on, but the fairing and cases were grounding out on the lefthand side. I was only 0.2 seconds away, so quite close, but it’s good close racing and that’s the main thing.and this series is turning out to be quite interesting.”
Not wrong there Derek.all the action from the next round at Croft on 8-9 July in the next issue.
