Wrong place, Wright times for 600 ace Curtis

In EMRA, News

CURTIS Wright may have been collected by Phil Crowe’s untimely spill at Mallory Park, but he still managed to dominate EMRA’s Open 600 ranks this weekend.

The multi-time club champion didn’t have it all his own way, however. Moto Time Attack champ Andrew Wilkinson made the best of a damp circuit to snatch pole position ahead of Mark Pattinson and Christopher Stuart, while Wright sat eighth on the grid.

He may have bagged two Open 600 wins, but Curtis Wright couldn’t help getting caught up in the action as Phil Crowe went down at Edwina’s…

But the Triumph rider made short work of the front two rows in the first Marine Fabrications 401-600cc race as he carved through the pack and pulled over a second into the lead ahead of Wilkinson by the end of lap one.

And there was no stopping Wright as he continued to grab nearly a second per lap on his way to the chequered flag, 12 seconds ahead of Wilkinson and nearly 14 seconds clear of Arnie Shelton in third.

Race two was nothing short of a repeat for the former Thundersport GP1 ace as he once again launched into the lead on the drying circuit, this time trailed by Shelton and last year’s Supersport runner-up Jed Bird.

But trail is all the two chasers could do as Wright stormed to another win, this time five seconds clear of Shelton and 11 ahead of Bird.

And to top off his weekend, the 675 rider even nabbed a podium finish in the big bike-dominated Superbike Trophy race behind Leon Jeacock and fellow double-winner John Ingram.
