JOSH Day has his sights set on clinching his second title of the season as the NGRRC heads to Pembrey next weekend.
Having already won the Phoenix Open championship after riding to two solid second places at Anglesey last time out, Day is now hoping he can land the Simon Consulting Open 600 crown too.
Currently sitting on 203 points with two rounds left to run, the Swindon car sprayer has a heathy advantage over second place man Max Symonds on 144, and knows a good run at Pembrey could see him add another 600 title to his ever-growing collection.
While he is also running for the Crank Racing outfit in Thundersport GB this year, Day’s NG effort is all under his own juice with his small family-run Dayo Racing team, using his old Yamaha R6 which he admits hasn’t always been easy.
“The bike is getting on now and sometimes I’ve wondered if it was time to change but we’ve had a great season so far and it hasn’t let me down. We won the Open after a really strong season and even though the 600s have been a bit harder, I’m confident we can get there.
“I’ve got a nice lead now and as long as we keep finishing we should be fine but obviously I’m looking for wins. I’ve had a really good run recently and hopefully we can keep the momentum going at Pembrey.”
Other riders looking to land a title at Pembrey include Tom Blackwell who leads both the Mini Twins and super Twins classes as well as teenager Josh Singh who heads the F125 battle.
