PR Racing will look to leave their mark as they prepare for rounds 10/11/12 at their home track of Oulton Park.
Despite facing mechanical issues at the last round, Joe Francis will be itching to get back out on the track. The BSB rider was forced out of race one on Saturday but with the bike’s problems taken care of overnight, Francis raced impressively on Sunday.
The #40 rider finished the weekend very strong and hopes to continue this positive momentum this weekend at his local circuit in Cheshire, as he said: “We were right there at the end; our pace was good enough for the top 10, but unfortunately starting 18th in the race 3 ruined it.”
“I was happier with 16th in that race than I have been with any other race and points this year.”
GP2 rider, Dan Jones impressed in his first race last time out, finishing P5. Having already set a new personal best in race two, 1.7 seconds quicker than race one and working his way up the positions. Jones was forced to retire. The number #44 rider is never shy of optimism and when asked how he felt going into this race weekend, he replied: “Im looking forward to Oulton Park, it’s the local one for me. It is also one of my favourite tracks so im excited to get going.”
“I will be looking to bouncing back after the issues at Silverstone, so let’s see how we go!”
Normally at our home track we would be looking forward to seeing our fans out in their numbers and everyone at PR Racing is devastated we can’t share this weekend with you. We can still feel your support and will do everything have a successful weekend as possible.
Good luck to the team and stay safe everyone.
