Snetterton 300: Double podium acts as confidence builder for Linfoot

After narrowly missing out on victory in both races at Snetterton Dan Linfoot wants to use the results as a confidence builder as he seeks to crack a first BSB win.
After narrowly missing out on victory in both races at Snetterton Dan Linfoot wants to use the results as a confidence builder as he seeks to crack his maiden MCE British Superbike win.

The Honda Racing rider was beaten to the chequered flag by team-mate Jason O'Halloran after making a mistake out of the final corner which forced him into a slide while leading.

In race two Linfoot had been keeping pace with leader Shane Byrne but was denied a shot at the win after his team-mate Jenny Tinmouth crashed and spilled debris and oil on to the track forcing an early red flag stoppage.

Despite once again coming close to a first BSB race win, having also led at Oulton Park and been in strong contention at both Brands Hatch Indy and Knockhill, Linfoot wants to use the experiences as motivation for the upcoming rounds and is certain he's getting close to a first victory.

“I'm so pleased for Jason and the whole team, we've both given them results today and everyone works so hard, so it's nice to be able to be here with a 1-2 for Honda,” Linfoot said. “I don't want to sound disappointed with race one, I made a mistake but we came second and that's more points towards my Showdown.

“Race two I'm happy with and to come second to Shakey at that pace I can't really complain about it. I think we had an equal pace and if I'd been on the back of him I would have been able to make a move, with a bit of bravery.

“I am starting to believe now that I am good enough to win races and we're nearly there, I just need some luck on my side and I'm sure it will come soon.”

Linfoot's double second place finishes extends his rostrum run to four-in-a-row which has propelled the 28-year-old up to fourth in the BSB championship standings.
