Mason: My head went through the screen!

Gary Mason was left feeling somewhat worse for wear following the second British Superbike Championship race at Snetterton after 'head-butting' the screen on his Quay Garage Honda.

Having seen his 100 per cent winning record in the Mirror.co.uk Superbike Cup end with a retirement in the first race, Mason resumed his winning ways in race two with a run to 14th position overall.

However, in his attempts to keep Jon Kirkham at bay on the final lap, he ran wide at the chicane, hitting a bump and putting his helmet through the front screen of his Honda.

Leaving him feeling rather dazed – beyond the bump to the head -, Mason is looking ahead to Knockhill now after a difficult Snetterton weekend.

“I just protected my line when I passed Kirkham, so I went in a bit deep at the last chicane. I ran wide and there a big drop off and i was in the air and my head went through the screen, I nearly got him on the line but I hurt the old private parts!

“We had a DNF in the first race, but that's racing and we've had a good run. We were due for a bad weekend, so hopefully this is the one and we can move on to Knockhill.”
