Donington BSB: Stapleford still working on ‘Supersport style’

Buildbase Suzuki’s Luke Stapleford came away from the Donington Park Bennetts British Superbike round with a decent points haul but says he is still trying to get away from his long-established Supersport riding style.

The Leicestershire youngster made steps forward in terms of setup at his home track and went away with three points-scoring finishes pleased with making some progress with the GSX-R1000.

“It’s more improvement. Oulton was really difficult for us, but this weekend, while they’re not the results we go racing for, we made steps forward, came away with three points-scoring finishes and a couple of top-10s,” said Stapleford.

We obviously want to be further up the order than that, but I know that the team and the bike is more than capable of it. We’re getting there and we’re making steps forward.

“Qualifying was good and honestly I thought the pace might have been there for a podium but sadly it didn’t materialise. I also think I need to work on my style, which is still a bit ‘600-style’. But it’s progress, and hopefully we’ll do the same at Brands Hatch next time out.”
