Don't forget the factory bikes will get new go fast parts that tech3 wont see. Once this happens Cal and Division will be a bit lower in the order.

Thar being said, they both rode well.

- Well judged race to beat his more experienced team mate.

- Second fastest lap to Casey.

- Good race pace throughout, good consistency and good tyre management.

Any one of those in itself would be worthy of commendation but checks against all 3 signal that Cal is really starting to put it all together now. More rides like this will put him on the radar for factory teams. Well done to him.

absolutely fantastic result for cal !so many times brits have flattered to deceive at the top level ,but right now cal looks on fire,and if he can stay healthy it looks like there is still a fair bit to come.for a long time it looked like dovi was holding him up,and the second fastest race lap proves he could well have run with the top 3 for at least part of the race.
that has to be the race of is career,and i for one never thought he had the consistency to run at the front at the highest level,so its great to be proved wrong .

We need to add to Cal's accomplishments today that he finished quite well despite that he didn't get off the line too well.
He managed to work his way up today.
Quite an impressive showing today.
