BSB British GP2 | R1 Silverstone Circuit
Round One - Silverstone
After an impressive practice and qualifying session, Joe was happy with the set-up and confident that he could get a result in both races.
This was the first time the team had been out on a dry track, and they worked hard to set-up the new bike. With changes made for the morning warm-up session, Joe was happy with the improvements that had been made.
In race one Joe showed the full potential of the Krämer GP2 bike, by winning the first GP2 race of the season.
Race two saw Joe battling with top Supersport riders and leading the GP2 class when bad luck struck with only a couple of laps to go. The bike developed a problem with the clutch, a newly fitted component, which resulted in an early retirement from the race. On the upside the team has learnt a lot over the weekend and know what improvements need to be made to the bike before round two at Oulton Park, at the end of this month.
Rider, Joe Collier comments; “There are many positives to take from round one. With the lack of track time on the bike I am really happy with the progress we are making. I am really pleased to take the first win of the season in the race one. It was very unfortunate for both the team and I to have to retire out of P1 in the second race due to a teething problem, but we are hoping to make amends at Oulton Park. I can’t wait to get back out! Big thanks again to to Eddie, Ally, Cindy, Steve and Kev for all the support.”
Team Owner, Eddie Roberts comments; “As a whole we are all very happy with the first round and the progress we have made. I would like to say a big thanks to Joe and the team; Ally, Steve, Mark, Kevin, Lynsey and Cindy for your hard work. I would also like to thank our sponsors and supporters, Build Maintain Refurb, Charterhouse Auctioneers & Valuers, GB Racing Protection and Motorex.
Round two at Oulton Park, Cheshire - Bring it on!”
