Beverley’s James ‘Westy’ Westmoreland competed on board the Gearlink Kawasaki in the Dickies British Supersport Championship, placing the Kawasaki fourteenth on the grid for the first of the weekend’s two races in a time of 47.2secs.
As the lights went green for the first race of the day Westmoreland made up four places to tenth place.
He maintained tenth place until lap five when Dan Stamper (Allied Motorsport) made a move to relegate ‘Westy’ to eleventh place. Westmoreland remained in eleventh until lap fourteen when he dropped another place as Kurt Wigley (Wigley Racing) made a move. On the final lap (16) ‘Westy’ made a move on Wigley to retake eleventh place.
For race two Westmoreland line up thirteenth on the grid. With racing underway he made a flying start during lap one as he moved up into sixth place. Lap two and three respectively saw Robert Kennedy (Team ILR/RK Racing) and Bradley Perie (Diamond H Racing) pass Westmoreland.
Now running in eighth place he was pushing hard to regain the lost places when again on the final lap he made a move on Bradley Jones (Integro Yamaha) to claim seventh place at the chequered flag.
He gained a reasonable point’s haul during the weekend and now sits sixth in the championship standings on thirty five points. He will be in action again on the 5th-7th May at Oulton Park in Cheshire.
