BSB Oulton: Clutch trouble forces Farrer out of Stock 600 battle

In BSB, News

TEEN bike racing ace Charlie Farrer suffered mixed fortunes this weekend as he returned to the British Superbike paddock for another crack at the National Superstock 600 class.

The County Durham rider has been dipping his toes into the BSB support series this year as he balances 600cc duties with a place in the British Talent Cup, where he’s tucking into a tiny 250cc Moto3 machine for five rounds this season.

After winning the Thundersport GB Superteens championship, the Bemsee Team Green Junior Cup and Team Green Overall title last year, Farrer hopes to move up to the National championship full-time towards the tail end of this season.

But in his latest outing at Oulton Park for the second round of the series, he wasn’t so lucky – the youngster’s clutch gave up after just five laps of the feature race.

“The clutch went just as the safety car came out,” he told UK Clubsport. “It just started slipping and I had no choice but to pull in.

“I’m a bit disappointed, but it’s not like we were in it for a championship. We’ll get it next time.”

Farrer is bidding for better luck next time out when he gets stuck back into Talent Cup action at Snetterton in June.
