Brands Hatch BSB: Rookie Jacobsen claims best result yet

'Race one went really, really good. I know a couple of people dropped out but you have to finish the race to score points' - PJ Jacobsen
British Superbike rookie PJ Jacobsen celebrated his best result in the championship to date with a superb ride to fifth place in race one at Brands Hatch.

The New Yorker has made sound progress in BSB this season after being granted a Superbike ride with Northern Ireland's Tyco Suzuki team following impressive one-off rides in 2012 in the National Superstock 1000 and British Supersport classes.

Jacobsen, who finished eighth in the second race at Brands, is ninth in the championship overall following the first six rounds, 29 points outside the Showdown top six.

“Race one went really, really good. I know a couple of people dropped out but you have to finish the race to score points,” he said.

“The second race also started really well and when the safety car came out and I knew if I could get away with Kiyonari, I could run the front pace, but I'd kind of just wrecked my tyre as I'd been going so hard on it and I had to settle for eighth.

“That was my best weekend results in BSB so far so I'm looking forward to Oulton now, but a big thanks to the team.”

Team manager Philip Neill added: “PJ had an excellent day with fifth and eighth places, which is great progress for him at a track he still doesn't know terribly well.”
