Christian Iddon scores a consecutive 2nd place at Oulton Park

VisionTrack Ducati’s Christian Iddon stood on the podium at Oulton Park once again this weekend after matching yesterday’s result at the Cheshire circuit with a consecutive 2nd place.

Iddon started from 2nd on the grid and momentarily lost a place at the start, but held on to 2nd for the majority of the race eventually crossing the chequered flag just 0.214s behind race winner Jason O’Halloran (McAMS Yamaha).

Josh Brookes had a sensational pace during the race on his VisionTrack Ducati. He started from 8th, had made several passes to catch the leading trio of O’Halloran, Iddon and Danny Buchan (Rapid Fulfilment FS-3 Kawasaki) by half race distance. But Brookes was unable to make any further progress and finished his race in 4th.

Tommy Bridewell continued to struggle with setup on his Oxford Products Racing Ducati, and finished his race just outside the Top 10 finishers.

Brookes will line up for the final race of the weekend on pole, with Iddon and Bridewell starting from 5th and 14th on the grid respectively. 

Christian Iddon (VisionTrack Ducati #21) – 2nd
“Yesterday I made the excuse that Jason could look at was I doing for the whole race and then he mugged me. But I just looked at his back wheel for 18 laps solid and wasn’t able to do anything with him. The pace was so much faster than yesterday, there wasn’t a moment I was able to breathe. Yesterday I was taking a deep breath and able to do quite a smooth race but that race then Jason pulled such a pace that is was just a case of hanging on really. There was a few times where I thought I could have got in front. I was actually happy with the pace Json was running and was hoping that the pace was so hot we’d break away because yesterday there was a big group and I didn’t really want a big group in case something occurred. The last few laps he pulled the pin and I was just about to keep with him but could do nothing with him. My bike was really good again, a bit like yesterday. We’re strong and weak in different places. We split the difference and I think Jason said that he’s split the difference. One more to go!”
