Leon Jeacock is stopping with EBC Brakes for the 2016 season

Leon Jeacock has had a season of gaining steady points in the Pirelli National Superstock1000 Championship and plans to be stopping with EBC Brakes to gain even more! Equipped with GPFAX brake pads, Leon feels confident he will continue to climb up the Championship table and is looking forward to the next round at Brands Hatch.

Here is the latest race report of Round 7 of the Pirelli National Superstock1000 Championship at Thruxton:

Photo: Leon Jeacock is stopping with EBC Brakes for the 2016 seasonThe ultra-fast speed bowl circuit of Thruxton in Hampshire held the latest round of the Pirelli National Superstock1000 Championship with Black Horse for Leon and the Geo E Davies Racing team. A circuit Leon enjoys due to its high speed nature, he had high hopes to carry on his great points scoring form of the last few rounds.
Free practice did not go to plan for Leon and the team as the settings they thought would offer the best performance did not meet expectations, despite this he posted a time good enough for eleventh fastest. The team set about making changes to the BMW overnight and he was confident of going faster in the two qualifying sessions to be held on the Saturday.

Qualifying one was held on Saturday morning with second qualifying to be held later in the day. The overnight modifications worked well and Leon knocked a half second off his free practice time to finish in the top twelve. The hot weather and the abrasive tarmac of the Thruxton circuit meant going faster in the heat of the afternoon would be quite an achievement, despite the conditions Leon was able to slightly improve on his time which boded well for the race.

Leon Jeacock in action!

Starting from thirteenth on the grid Leon made a good start and held his position on the first lap. Trouble hit on lap two though as the BMW jumped out of gear and he fell down to twenty sixth place after taking avoiding action and running off the track. Leon set about clawing his way back up the field, carving his way through to sixteenth place and was looking to climb into the top fifteen for another points finish, however yet again the machine jumped out of gear, although he ran off track he was able to hold onto sixteenth place at the chequered flag.

Leon said after:

I am very disappointed not to carry on my good run of form, but I am looking forward to the next round at Brands Hatch on the Grand Prix layout. I like the track and am happy about the way I fought back after my off track excursions. I would like to add my great thanks to all my sponsors, family and friends for their support.
