Easton 'reasonably happy' with results

Stuart Easton feels he could have fared better at Donington Park, despite posting his best results since round three at Oulton Park.
Stuart Easton has mixed feelings following yesterday's ninth round of the MCE British Superbike Championship, where the Scotsman was the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki team's sole representative in the absence of Shane Byrne.

'Shakey' was missing from the action as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury sustained in a fall at Cadwell Park, leaving Easton to fly the flag for Paul Bird's outfit on his own.

He finished fourth and seventh in the two races on the ZX-10R, but the Hawick man feels he was hampered by the physical effort required to ride a superbike at Donington.

“I'm reasonably happy with a fourth and a seventh but I think it could have been a bit better,” he said.

“I was struggling a little bit with direction changes as Donington is a physical circuit and certain parts of me are still not 100%, but I'll take these results.

“It was good to have some additional input from 'Shakey's' side of the garage, which helped and I hope we can continue with some more positive results at Assen in two weeks.”

Byrne has undergone surgery and is targeting a return at Assen for the Showdown opener at the legendary Dutch venue.
