BSB Supports – Oulton Park: Day clinches third Ducati Cup crown

In BSB Support, News

JOSH Day claimed his third Ducati TriOptions Cup championship on the bounce with another clean sweep at Oulton Park this weekend.

In another commanding performance, the Host-it.co.uk Racing rider got the better of David Shoubridge as he completed the weekend double to move out of reach of his nearest title rivals.

Rich Energy man Shoubridge got the better of Day off the line as he slotted ahead of the pole-sitter heading into Old Hall but before they hit Island Bend Day was already back to his usual position at the front of the field.

The two soon pulled clear of the chasing pack, led by 4t2 Racing’s Chris Walker, Craig Neve and Dragon Racing man David Jones, with Max Lofthouse not far off in sixth.

By lap three, Day and Shoubridge had two seconds to spare over the rest of the field as a moment for the reigning champ allowed his race rival through at Britten’s.

As their advantage grew to more than four seconds with five laps remaining, Day sat behind until lap seven when a slide for Shoubridge at Island allowed him back into the lead.

And just as they were heading for the penultimate lap, red flags brought action to a halt for Jacque Foley’s crash as Day was declared the winner from Shoubridge, while roads man Neve got the better of Walker and Jones to take the final rostrum spot.

With his 10th win of the season and a 76-point gap ahead of the final two races at Brands next month, Day lifted his third consecutive Ducati Cup title.
