The Team Hero EBR 1190RX – the first American brand in World Superbike – had its best results so far of 2014 WSBK.

Aaron Yates piloted the 1190RX to a 17th place at race one at Donington Park, which is EBR’s best finish to date.

But the week was not without incident. In race 2, Yates crashed on lap 11, suffering a DNF. Luckily, though, he and the 1190RX were not damaged.

As for his teammate, Geoff May did not start at Donington due to an ongoing technical issue.

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.

Geoff May says: “I am sorry I couldn’t take part in the races. It is not so easy to sit and watch the other riders on track. Anyway I know the team is working hard with my bike and all I want to do now is focus on the next race in Sepang.”

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.”
