PJ Jacobsen buzzing after Oulton experience with Tyco Suzuki

'That's the craziest track I've ever ridden with blind corners that you really need to be on the gas with it if you want to be putting in the lap times' - PJ Jacobsen
American teenager PJ Jacobsen impressed Tyco Suzuki boss Philip Neill on his debut for the team in the Metzeler National Superstock 1000 class.

The 18-year-old New Yorker was also riding at the Cheshire circuit for the first time as he finished a superb seventh on the GSX-R1000, describing Oulton as 'the craziest track I've ever ridden'.

“That's the craziest track I've ever ridden with blind corners that you really need to be on the gas with it if you want to be putting in the lap times,” he said.

“I got caught out by the safety car going in, as I've never raced in that situation before but I loved the experience riding the Tyco Suzuki and I'd like to thank Philip [Neill] and the boys for the opportunity. Hopefully we can do it again.”

Team manager Neill admitted he was taken by the performance of the young prospect and stated he would relish the opportunity to work with Jacobsen again in the future after his one-off ride for the team at the weekend.

“PJ has impressed us this weekend both on and off the track. To jump on a bike he had never ridden before, on one of the most difficult BSB tracks in the series for the very first time and finish seventh, is testimony to the lad's ability on a motorcycle,” he said.

“Obviously this was a one-off ride but we would relish the chance to work with him again should the opportunity arise.”

Jacobsen was offered the chance to compete for the Northern Ireland team after he was let down on another ride after travelling to the UK from America.
