Appleyard Macadam Integro Yamaha extend championship lead at scorching hot Thruxton

Round 7 of the Dickies British Supersport championship was to be held at the famous Thruxton race circuit. Synonymous for its wide, fast flowing layout, the former world war II airstrip always throws up some spectacular racing.

Our Appleyard Macadam Intergro Yamaha team arrived at the circuit on Thursday, still unsure as to whether Jack Kennedy would be physically fit to ride. The whole team worked incredibly hard to adapt the bike in order to accommodate Jacks physical condition and make him as comfortable as possible.

Jack Kennedy:

"All in all a very hard weekend for me. I was initially surprised by what I was able to do on Friday. The feeling with the hand was not great but it was very important for our championship that we tried this weekend. After the race on Saturday, my condition was less than perfect so to come away with the race win and extending our lead in the championship by 25 points was incredible. I will be doing everything possible now to be fit for Cadwell Park. Thanks to my team and all my personal sponsors for their support.”

The team is now preparing for the next round at Cadwell Park in just under a fortnight.

The challenge will be as equally tough due to the tight and twisty nature of the circuit coupled with the injuries to Jack's hand. Hoping for victory, the team will be focused on getting both riders in the top 6 throughout the weekend and consolidating their championship lead.

We wish the boys the best of luck for Cadwell Park on 18-20th August. Also, a big thank you to all of our partners for their continued support.
