Hydrex Honda Hit Top Three of Championship


ViSK British Superbike Championship in association with Pirelli Round 3 – Donington Park – 23/24/25 May

The last round was all about Hydrex Honda’s Karl ‘Bomber’ Harris double podium; this round saw team mate Stuart Easton take his own double podium, finishing third in race one and second in race two, today at the third round of the ViSK British Superbike Championship in association with Pirelli at Donington Park. This makes a total of 5 podiums so far, this season, for the Hydrex Honda team.

Race two saw Karl Harris crash out with technical issues that left water on the track causing the race to be red flagged, In accordance with official race rules, the race was restarted and the well-prepared Hydrex Honda team brought Karls’s spare bike into play. Further problems then plagued Karl but he still made it over the line in 18th. Stuart Easton claimed another podium finish with a final position of second place.

Karl Harris “I was frustrated after the first race because I felt I could have done better. But I went into race two fully focused and then the machine flipped over. I was ok after the fall and the team did fantastic getting the second bike ready to go. I held in there but right at the very end I had further problems. I am disappointed but will make it up next week at Thruxton”

Stuart Easton ”Race one I was really pleased with everything. We had worked all day on Saturday building a new gear setting and it felt great. I knew I could take other riders and that I had the pace when I needed it. If anything I have been riding too smoothly but I feel like I am where I need to be now. I would just like to thank the team and PJ (Pete Jennings) for all the work and support. It’s a fantastic team here at Hydrex Honda”

Following his second place finish in the second race Stuart said:

“The bike is feeling really good and I have one objective now and that’s to go one step further next week. I love Thruxton and I am going to do my best for the team and for myself of course”

Shaun Muir (Team Owner) “5 podiums in 6 races, I can’t complain. Last week was Karl’s week and this is of course Stuart’s week. I am hoping that next Sunday we will all see both riders on the podium together. That’s the next goal. It’s only a matter of time now before a Hydrex Honda rider wins a race. Karl will wake up on Tuesday in a lot of pain that’s for sure but his determination to get back out and rejoin the restart is a measure of the man. The first crash was by no means his fault and we as a team have to take responsibility for it, we can legislate for many things but not a simple component failure. He will regroup and come prepared for Thruxton, he has my 100% support”
