Two Top Ten Results For Jake Archer

Round five of the Hel Performance Motostar Championship was held at Snetterton, Norfolk. The circuit underwent a major redevelopment starting in 2011 and the Snetterton 300 circuit is a 2.97 mile challenge of international racing standards.

With grid positions based on the fastest laps in race one Archer found he had to start from 11th on the grid. Despite this set back he made a fantastic start to the race and was up to 6th by the end of the first lap. Archer found himself in a group of four riders behind the leading trio, but as they were constantly changing places it meant that the front-runners were able to move further ahead.

Jake Archer remains second in the Hel Performance Motostar Championship on 123 points.

Jake Archer said ”It was a tough weekend where we lost ground on the leader. In the first race I was involved in a battle with two other riders and managed sixth. Then in the Sunday race I got a great start but was bogged down in another group of riders. It was difficult to maintain my rhythm. In the final three laps of the race I did manage to find a bit extra and got myself back to sixth place after I was forced out wide earlier. I would like to give a big shout out to the City Lifting team who were a great support as always and to all my other sponsors.”
