Mason Law, fresh from his experiences at World Superbike and fully recovered from his injuries was looking forward to Snetterton 300 where he still holds the outright lap record in SuperStock 1000. Starting well, Law worked hard with his team to secure his best BSB qualifying to date moving into Q2 for the first time for 18th on the grid.
In an incident packed Race One, Law made a great start pushing as high as 10th, but his inexperience with the bike and tyre set up saw him drop back a little but still to a personal best of 12th in a BSB race. Mason continued this form into Race Two and looked to be on for a repeat of his first race result but had to settle for one place less in 13th.
"It’s certainly very positive and shows where we are at, at the minute, and how positive we all are as a team, but we are expecting more now. I’d obviously like to thank my whole team (everyone involved at GR Motosport) and the crew involved on my side of the garage. We had a few hiccups this weekend but we managed to overcome them."
Mason Law scored his first Superbike points at the third round of the Championship at Oulton Park. In the first race, Mason made a good start and settled in to build his rhythm and confidence and as the 18-lap race continued, Mason’s pace stayed strong and he fought to grab his first British Superbike points on the very last lap.
“It was a really strange weekend which started off on a positive note, when we were P6 at one point in the opening session. It’s a huge sigh of relief that we found a bit of pace at the previous week’s test, which then allowed us to try some bits and pieces with the bike at Oulton.”
“For race two we got to start a little further up the grid [one row]. I felt I got a good launch but didn’t seem to gain anything, then unfortunately I had to pull in with a technical problem to end our weekend a little earlier than anticipated.”
The second round of the British Superbike Championship at Brands Hatch was a mixed weekend for GR Motosport’s Team WD-40 / STAUFF Quick Connect Academy.
Mason Law’s rookie season in Superbike is developing to plan as he becomes more familiar with running in the premier class aboard the Team WD-40 ZX10RR. Mason continues to be in the zone with the other rookies again just outside the points, but Team WD-40 feel that their initial points goal will be in reach quite soon.
“I have to say there are tons of positives to take from the weekend at Brands Hatch, and even more than we had at Donington Park during round one. I feel we can hold our heads high and move on now to Oulton Park, after an upcoming official test there first, which is good for me personally, as I can get some laps in on the Team WD-40 Kawasaki Superbike before the May Day Bank Holiday meeting.”
