Oulton Park: Ellison hungry for more victory in opener

'This win means a lot to me and the Milwaukee Yamaha team have worked hard for this; we just have to try and do the same tomorrow' - James Ellison
Milwaukee Yamaha's James Ellison wants more of the same on Sunday after wrapping up a hard-earned victory in the first of the weekend's three MCE British Superbike races at Oulton Park.

Ellison never put a foot wrong as he came under intense pressure from reigning BSB champion Shane 'Shakey' Byrne during the final laps at the Cheshire circuit, holding on to claim his second win of the season for Shaun Muir's team.

“It was a tough race and we knew we needed to try and get away at the front as they have done that at the last few rounds,” said Ellison.

“We had the pace, qualified on the front row and made some decent passes during the race. I thought 'Shakey' was going to make a move and my pit board was showing me +0 and I thought 'here we go'.

“I tried to keep the lap times consistent and ride a bit defensive on the last lap, especially into Lodge and that did the job,” he added.

“This win means a lot to me and the Milwaukee Yamaha team have worked hard for this; we just have to try and do the same tomorrow.”
