Motorpoint looks to the positives

Dan Linfoot endures a frustrating end to what looked like being a strong weekend at Cadwell Park
The Motorpoint Yamaha team was left to look to the positives at Cadwell Park after a fine ride from Dan Linfoot in race two failed to provide the youngster with the result he deserved.

Linfoot had finished the opening race of the weekend in tenth place but battled hard to climb to sixth in race two.

However, Linfoot was then caught out at the treacherous Mountain section of the circuit and fell in the closing laps which forced him to retire and brought out the red flags.

Despite that disappointment, Linfoot insisted he was pleased with his pace over the course of the weekend and was confident that he has now turned a corner ahead of the remainder of the season.

“I know I did not quite get the whole weekend sorted but feel I have turned the corner and can run with the faster guys,” he said. “I really only got comfortable in the last session on Saturday so race day was still a learning curve. I was really happy to finish the first race and learn a few things about tyre life and how the bike felt this helped me push much harder in the second race.

“I got the gas on a bit strong leading up to the mountain with a couple of laps to go while in sixth position and the bike let go, firing me over the bars. I'm sorry for the team and the boys they have all worked hard for me this weekend, I will pay them back at Mallory!”

Team-mate Ian Lowry endured a weekend he regarded as 'very tough', admitting afterwards that tenth in race one and twelfth in race two 'wasn't good enough'.
