JG Speedfit Kawasaki rider, Luke Mossey, is determined to return to his 2017 best this weekend, when he gets on the tarmac at Assen in the Netherlands on 28-30 September.
It was a mixed weekend for Mossey in the last round of the BSB Championship at Oulton Park when he crashed out of race one, but became dogged in race two, crossing the chequered flag in seventh. And now he has one of his favourite circuits coming up, the rider is aiming for podiums.
“We’ve enjoyed good results at the TT Circuit Assen in the past, as the track really suits my riding style. It’s the only opportunity we get in BSB to compete outside the UK and I always look forward to it,” said an excited Mossey, who has built some confidence back up after Oulton Park. “I was really pleased with the last round; we qualified on the front row and it was good to be back in the mix,” he added.
Assen is known as ‘The Cathedral’ – and for good reason: it is a pilgrimage for Moto GP, World Superbike and British Superbike fans who will make the annual trip to go and witness the races at one of the most exciting circuits on the calendar.
Naturally, the racer is eager to keep his legion of fans happy at the circuit. “I’m determined to get on the podium before the end of this season. I know what I can do on the bike and although it’s been frustrating, I’ve got to put it behind me,” Mossey explained.
Focused on that podium finish, Mossey wants to end 2018 in the best possible way. “I have nothing to lose. I’m aiming now to be a Showdown spoiler – I want a trophy so I can finish the season on a high and start preparing for 2019,” he concluded.
It’s going to be another weekend jam-packed full of action – and, if Mossey can get on the podium, he could be coming home with a smile on his face.
