NG Road Racing: Big bike sweep for Ducati-mounted Day

In News, NG Road Racing

JOSH Day got back to winning ways this weekend as a spare bike helped salvage his championship chase at NG’s Anglesey round.

Just weeks after a massive off at Pembrey left the Dayo Racing R1 in tatters, the Ducati TriOptions Cup leader’s spare Host-it.co.uk Panigale was wheeled out to keep his points tally ticking over.

Not only did he manage to do that in the Open class, but Day grabbed three wins as Chris Barnes, Richard Wilson, Chris Pope, Allister Haynes and Dave Mackay were left in his wake.

If Day’s rides were impressive against the out-and-out Superbikes, then so too were Bobby Varey’s as the latter picked up two podiums and a fourth place on his R6, with the fourth place after he had missed the call to the grid and was forced to start from the back of the grid.

Varey set the second fastest lap of the race behind Day’s as he fought his way through the pack, missing out on a podium by just 1.3sec.

Former NG 600 champ Max Symonds recovered after his ZX6R went awry in race two to pick up enough points to hang on to third in the season-long championship.

Day was back at it in the Powerbike ranks as he brought his tally to 12 wins from the 18 rounds. And while still on his team’s spare 959, he was untouchable as the S1000RRs, Gixxer 1000s and R1 could not get a sniff of the V-Twin.

Haynes was having another strong weekend after a troubled early part of the season, gaining confidence on his Suzuki after a wildcard appearance at last weekend’s Thruxton BSB Superstock round.

His reward was a hard-earned podium on the seven-one.co.uk machine as he moved up to fifth in the championship, sharing rostrum honours with Barnes and Wilson.
