Motostar Round 2 Preview - Oulton Park
Eugene McManus Junior and Team E15 Racing return to action this coming May Bank holiday weekend as they visit Oulton Park, for Round 2 of The Hel Performance British Motostar Championship. ( 5th-7th May 2018 )
The Wee Bull has good form and previous success around the 2.69 mile Cheshire circuit. In 2017 he finished P2 behind Tom Booth Amos in the corresponding early round and also picked up a 4th place in Round 10 last September. The team and Junior know this weekend could kick start the season after a difficult round 1 at Brands ;
" I have a lot to work on after Brands and have thought long and hard about this weekend at Oulton. I know that so far this year we've only scratched the surface in terms of my potential and I've got to figure out how we get the best of me at one of my favourite circuits to ride. A good points haul this weekend would certainly boost my confidence and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in."
The McManus family were on hand to celebrate Junior's podium at Oulton last season and Eugene Senior thinks The Bull will be back for more this weekend;
"I'd say Junior will be more like his "old self" at Oulton and we know he has the potential to go well there. We are still looking for consistency and obviously finishing races is vital, I'm sure we will be at the sharp end come Monday afternoon."
Oulton Park's combination of stunning scenery and spectacular racing make it one of the most picturesque and best-loved circuits for spectators and competitors alike. The forecast is dry and sunny so everyone at E15 Racing is looking forward to some exciting action with two Moto3 races on the card !! Here's this weekend's timetable;
Free Practice 1 kick's off on Saturday at 11.00 – 11.20am with FP2 at 14.05 – 14.30pm.
Qualifying is on Sunday 12.50 – 13.15pm with Race 1 scheduled for 15.50pm.
Bank Holiday Monday's Race 2 concludes the Motostar timetable at 14.55pm and will be live on Eurosport 2.
As always Eugene and the team would like to thank all of our sponsors for making this season possible!!
