Joe Collier – Brands – Round 2
Round two of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship took place at Brands Hatch this weekend. Joe Collier riding for the EHA Racing team on the Aprilia, secured a fifth in race one on Saturday and fourth in race two on Sunday.
Joe made several changes over the weekend on the Aprilia to find a good set-up in the dry conditions. He was consistently in the top ten during practice and qualified for race one in 10th place only 0.6 off pole. He was keen to get a good start in the opening 24-lap race and he held his position after the first lap. He soon started making his move through the pack and worked hard to push himself through to finish in a strong fifth place.
For race two he started in 11th place on the grid, another fantastic start saw him sitting in seventh place after the opening lap. His lap times were once again extremely consistent and he continued to work his way up through the field to finish in a strong fourth place at the end of the 24-lap race. Joe is now in fourth place in the overall Championship standings.
Joe Collier – “We made good progress throughout the weekend and it was a shame we qualified as low down as we did, as this put us on the back foot in both races.
I had a good battle in both races to work my way through the pack. The second race was tougher, I felt like I had the pace to run for a podium but I was locked in a real battle with Alastair Seeley which probably held us both up.
It was another weekend with two solid points and I am still fourth in the Championship, it is a long season so I need to be as consistent as I possibly can be.
Thanks again to all my sponsors and also the EHA Racing team.”
