Chris Walker produces battling performance at Oulton Park

'Chris worked really hard all weekend and despite still struggling with his injuries and being in a lot of pain, he put in three fantastic performances' - Pete Extance
Chris Walker delighted Pr1mo Bournemouth Kawasaki team owner Pete Extance after sealing three top 12 finishes at Oulton Park.

Walker, who secured a popular victory at Oulton in May, is recovering from two broken heels sustained at Knockhill.

He finished seventh in Saturday's opener before finishing 11th and 12th in the remaining two races on Sunday to end the weekend with 16 championship points to move into eighth overall in the MCE British Superbike Championship.

“Chris worked really hard all weekend and despite still struggling with his injuries and being in a lot of pain, he put in three fantastic performances,” said Extance.

“It was quite a tough schedule with three races and not a lot of time in between sessions but he gave it 100 per cent as always and grabbed a solid haul of points.

“It's enabled him to move up two places in the championship and he's still well within striking distance of the Showdown places, so there's plenty to be positive about.”

Gary Mason, who replaced the injured James Hillier at the Cheshire circuit, struggled with an electrical fault.

He failed to finish Saturday's race and the opening event on Sunday, but battled to 18th place in the final race of the weekend.
