PS Superstock cliffhanger
After seven frantic rounds of racing it’s all down to Brands
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?
