Morgan Creasey recently carried out the Snetterton rounds of both series he races in
Lincolnshire-based motorcycle racer Morgan Creasey is currently competing in two British Motorcycle and Racing Club (Bemsee/BMCRC) championships: the DART MRO on his Yamaha R6, as well as the Thunderbike Ultra on his K7 Suzuki GSX-R1000.
Both machines benefit from EBC Brakes Racing’s GPFAX motorsport brake pads and X-Series floating brake discs.
Creasey is currently leading the Thunderbike Ultra series and sits second in the DART MRO, following another successful weekend at Norfolk’s Snetterton Circuit.
You can read how the event panned out in his own words below.
“This weekend at Snetterton was another successful one – a great number of championship points were gained.”
DART MRO 600 (R6)
Qualifying – 5th
Race 1 – 3rd
Race 2 – 2nd
Race 3 – 2nd
Race 4 – 2nd
“After qualifying, I started 5th on the grid. Due to the budget being tighter as we come to the end of the season, I made the decision to use the same tyres that I used throughout the Cadwell Park weekend. This meant I didn’t have as much grip as I would have liked or needed.
“In the first race, I got off to a good start but I wasn’t able to keep up with the pace of the leaders. I finished this race in 3rd position which brought my grid position to the front row for the next race.
“In the second race, I got a good start but again I did not have the pace to battle with the lead man. I finished this race in 2nd position, bringing my grid position up to 2nd where I remained for the rest of the weekend.
“Sunday’s races were much more exciting – I found some pace and was able to battle for the lead. In the third race, there were multiple changes to the lead which eventually ended with a drag race to the line resulting in a photo finish of 0.005 seconds between us, with me finishing in 2nd place with a PB of 1:57.701.
“The fourth race was much the same story, however by this point I had very little grip left in the tyre causing me to run wide in the final stages of the race. I brought it home in 2nd position with 0.814 to the lead. Huge congratulations to Harry Fowle on winning the championship this weekend.”
Thunderbike Ultra (GSXR)
Qualifying – 1st
Race 1 – 1st
Race 2 – 1st
Race 3 – 1st
Race 4 – 2nd
“I qualified on Saturday morning on the pole position. In the first race, I got my normal start, Stacey kept me honest all race. I was able to control the pace and it wasn’t long before we pulled away from the rest of the pack. I brought it home in 1st position.
“The second race was a repeat of the first race. In this race, there were more changes to the lead but I again brought it home in first place.
“The third race again saw close battles between myself and Stacey. Stacey was pushing me on pace all the way through. I finished P1 with a lap PB of 1:59.220.
“By race four, Kieran Smith had made his way up the grid. My start wasn’t as strong as normal, but I was able to keep the lead. For the majority of the race, the battles were between 1st and 2nd places, with Kieran watching and waiting for the right opportunity. A mistake on the final lap and I dropped from 1st to 3rd. This gave Kieran the opportunity he had been waiting for and he quickly took the lead. This gave me the chance to rectify my mistake. I pushed hard to the end and gained 2nd position.”
“I go into the final round at Brands Hatch leading the Thunderbike Ultra championship with it all still to play for. I am also currently second place in the MRO 600 championship.”
