Quattro Plant Kawasaki's Dan Linfoot was far from impressed with his results at Donington Park, where the Yorkshire rider confirmed his place in the MCE British Superbike Championship Showdown.

Linfoot took eight place in race one, but a clutch problem hindered his prospects in the second race and he limped across the line in 14th position.

The 26-year-old struggled with the front end of his ZX-10R throughout the weekend and is now looking ahead to stepping up his performances in the final three-round Showdown, which gets underway at Assen on September 21.

"I'm a bit miffed with how this weekend's gone and whilst it's been nice to finally confirm my Showdown position, the results here at Donington haven't been what I wanted," Linfoot said.

"I've had a bad feeling with the front all weekend, particularly from the Old Hairpin to McLeans and although I could make up time towards the end of the lap, I was losing too much time through the fast stuff.

"I just couldn't run the pace I wanted and in the second race, just when I looked like getting a half decent result the clutch went," he added. "I didn't want to pull in so persevered until the end and at least got a finish.

"It's all about the Showdown now though and it will be nice just to be able to concentrate on racing. I've got three rounds and seven races to impress and give the front boys as hard a time as possible."
