Walker counting down to Oulton Park races

Friday, April 26 2013

Chris Walker celebrated in style at Oulton Park last season when he was victorious in Cheshire and now the Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki rider is gearing up to challenge for a top position again this May Bank Holiday weekend (4/5/6 May).

Walker currently lies just a single point outside the top six in the overall standings and after battling for the top five at Thruxton before a technical problem curtailed his charge, the 'Stalker' is aiming high for Oulton Park. The Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki rider will also be sporting some special edition leathers for raceday to recognise the Dickies round of the Championship, who also personally support him.

Walker said: "It has been a strong start to the season for us, we have finished each race in the top eight apart from the technical problem we had in race one at Thruxton and before that we had been fighting in the top four. We just need to stay in a position that can put us in the Showdown and even with the one DNF we are only one point off that at the moment so that is about where we need to be at this stage of the game. The updates that the team have been working on throughout the winter and over the first two rounds have made a difference for sure and we want to be back near the front again next weekend.

"Going back to Oulton Park is something I can't wait for now after the break since Thruxton. That equivalent race last year was fantastic and I am sure everyone will be looking at us to have another good result next weekend now. This is the Dickies round of the Championship, who also support me personally, so it would be great to put on a good show for them especially as I will be wearing their special edition leathers for raceday! We are all working hard so hopefully we can have two even better races and put ourselves into that top six."

The next round of the  MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship takes place this May Bank Holiday weekend (4/5/6) at Oulton Park. Advance adult tickets for raceday cost £26 online in advance with children aged 12 and under admitted free. For more information and to book click here or call 0843 453 9000.
