Stuart Easton 'growing stronger all the time'

'I think Thruxton showed that we have the pace and moving on to Oulton Park I am really looking forward to it' - Stuart Easton
Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki rider Stuart Easton proved he is back with a vengeance in the MCE British Superbike Championship following an impressive performance at Thruxton.

Easton finished fifth and fourth on the ZX-10R, narrowly missing out on a rostrum finish in race two by 0.083 seconds to team-mate Shane 'Shakey' Byrne to demonstrate that he has put his horror accident at last year's North West 200 road races firmly behind him.

The Scot has battled back to fitness and his old confidence has returned as he prepares for the May Bank Holiday meeting at Oulton Park in Cheshire.

“I think Thruxton showed that we have the pace and moving on to Oulton Park I am really looking forward to it. The track will be more physical but I have been making big inroads with my strength all the time,” he said.

“I think the time off since Thruxton will only help this again as I have been able to continue my training and preparation. I really want to build on our result from Thruxton now and I think we can continue to push on and start to peg some of the leading guys back,” added Easton on the official British Superbike website.

“It is one of my favourite tracks and hopefully with three races we can score some good points for the championship.”

Oulton will host a Bank Holiday BSB triple-header after the race postponed from Brands Hatch was rescheduled to take place at the third round of the championship.

Last season, the Hawick rider finished on the podium twice at Oulton, underling his affinity with the circuit and Easton will be aiming to repeat the feat next weekend.
