WSS: McCoy delivers Triumph first podium

Triumph celebrated their first modern era World Supersport podium on home ground after Garry McCoy claimed a superb third place finish at Donington Park.

While the manufacturer, which entered the Supersport series last season with the Daytona 675, has shown flashes of speed over the last year and a half under the BE1 Racing banner, Donington Park proved to be their most convincing showing.

Indeed, after qualifying sixth, McCoy ran with the leaders in the early stages before embarking on a tussle with Kenan Sofuoglu as they disputed the final podium spot.

Eventually, the Australian would win out and ride to the chequered flag to complete a historic result for the manufacturer.

"It feels great to be the first rider to score a podium result with a Triumph. I've been collaborating with the English manufacturer for two seasons now, but with Giuliano Rovelli's team only since the last round. We didn't start the season on the right foot but now we're score great results.

“I knew that sooner or later I would ride a great race. I have to thank the entire team for a good job done on the machine which is getting better and better. Now we broke the ice but there is still a long way to go in the championship".

McCoy's result places him ninth in the World Supersport standings.
