PS Su­per­stock cliffhanger

After seven fran­tic rounds of rac­ing it’s all down to Brands

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Ps World -

After seven fran­tic rounds, the CRMC PS Su­per­stock Cham­pi­onship will have been de­cided at Brands on 7/8 Oc­to­ber (as PS goes to press). At An­gle­sey’s penul­ti­mate round, dis­rupted by a GSX-R750 coat­ing the al­ready wet track in oil, Derek Cripps (Suzuki) emerged just nine points ahead of Chris White (Honda).

They went to Brands with White need­ing to win to se­cure the crown and Cripps re­ly­ing on fin­ish­ing one place be­hind him if Danny Im­berg (Yamaha) wins (as he has at ev­ery round he’s en­tered).

“After a whole sea­son we might as well have had just one round at Brands to set­tle it,” said Chris White. “But it’s been great rac­ing for ev­ery­one ex­cept poor old Liam [Mc­carter, who broke a col­lar­bone at Don­ing­ton].”

“You have to imag­ine Danny’s go­ing to win both races at Brands,” said Cripps. “But any­thing can hap­pen.” White has a good record at the Kent cir­cuit. “I haven’t even been there since 2001,” he said. “I don’t par­tic­u­larly like it, but I seem to go well, hav­ing won there be­fore.”

White (13) and Cripps (29) have been har­ry­ing each other all sea­son. Who will pre­vail at the end?
