The team will now focus on the first ever World Superbike event at Sepang in Malaysia in a two weeks with the hope of continuing the progress made at Donington Park.

Aaron Yates says: “We did a great job during throughout weekend. I felt the bike improving after every session and I think this is what really matters at this stage. I am sorry for the crash in race 2 because I wanted fight till the end but the 17th in the first race is encouraging.”
