Peter Hickman returned to form in impressive style at Cadwell Park on a weekend in which he regularly ran with the front runners. The Tyco Honda rider finished eighth in Sunday's rescheduled race from Oulton Park before taking fifth in both battles on Monday.
“I'm really happy with the weekend”, he commented. “We qualified well and it was a really fast pace in both of Monday's races. We were running 1:27s lap times all race – even on the last lap.
“In Monday's first race Josh Brookes held me up a bit and started to gap me but then I chased him down and was back with him. He was so late on the brake though which made it impossible to pass but I've got to say I was really happy with my performance.”
“In the second of Monday's races, I ran with the leaders throughout the entire 15 laps and it was much the same story – I had the pace to do the lap times but I didn't quite have enough to put a move on any of them.”
Team Owner Ian Woollacott praised the Louth rider and backed him to continue his impressive form in the final three events of the year.
“We're delighted with Peter's performance this weekend. He was on the pace from the very start and in the race was able to run with the leading pack in both of Sunday's races. Now we're hoping he can carry that momentum into the next round at Donington Park in two weeks' time.
