Luke Mossey is hoping for a repeat of his first career double win this weekend when he returns to Brands Hatch, Kent.
Mossey took back-to-back wins at Brands Hatch in the second round of the competition in April. That race was on the shorter Indy circuit, with this weekend’s race taking place on the full Grand Prix track.
Speaking about replicating April’s performance, Mossey said: “It would be amazing to pick up another double podium this weekend, but the main aim is to keep picking up podium points in both races. If we can get a win in the process, then even better.”
With the rider three points clear at the top of the championship he made the most of a short break last week. He took time to relax and refocus his mind firmly on the challenge ahead.
A fully focused Mossey said: “I’ve had a nice holiday in Spain and feel really relaxed and fully refreshed ahead of the weekend. We’re going back to Brands Hatch, and my bike and I love it there.
“It’s a great track and round six is always a really popular race with the fans. It’s in the middle of the summer and schools have just broken up, so we get lots of support, which is fantastic.”
Mossey’s last race at Snetterton was difficult after he crashed during Sunday morning’s warm up session. His JG Speedfit Kawasaki team worked hard to repair his bike for race one, but he had to pull out after two laps. Fortunes turned slightly in race two with a tenth place finish.
Talking about Snetterton, Mossey said: “Initially I felt disappointed afterwards as there was a big build up ahead of the race and we felt good. Unfortunately it was just one of those weekends. I think only the strongest of people get through them and move on to the next race.
“What’s reassuring is that all the riders have had bad weekends. Both Leon Haslam and Shakey (Shane Byrne) have had theirs, so now I’ve had mine. My bike is back to what I know and I’m testing on Tuesday before heading to Brands Hatch, so I just can’t wait to get back on the track.”
Keen to quickly move on, Mossey will have to be on top form in Kent. His closest rival in the Championship is Be Wiser Ducati rider, Shane Byrne. JG Speedfit Kawasaki teammate, Leon Haslam is in third position, just 15 points behind Mossey.
It will be a close race, with Mossey looking to extend his lead at the top of the table.
