Dramatic end to season for SGR Racing

Dan Moreton aboard his SGR Racing Honda salvaged a 20th place finish during the final round of the Speedyretail.com 125GP British Championship at Oulton Park in Cheshire. 
 
The team worked hard over the weekend to set the Morpeth based SGR Racing Honda up for the undulating circuit. The changes in gradient were causing some concerns compared to the flat nature of Silverstone last time out.  

Qualifying in 28th place left Moreton with a lot of work to do once the lights went out. He made a cracking start but unfortunately a first lap crash unfolded in front of him and he had to take to the escape road. This left him right at the very back of the pack of 35 riders. 

Moreton settled into his race and picked off as many riders as he could during the 10 lap race, coming home in 20th place thanks to his efforts. 
 
Moreton said:“After scoring points at Silverstone I wanted to do the same again but after the first lap incident it was going to be a tall order. I’m pleased with the progress we made this weekend; we learned a lot which we can take forward to 2011. I think we’ve done a good job considering we have only been working together for the final three rounds.” 

Team Manager Steve Kinghorn said:“It’s been a good weekend and has helped get us set-up for next year. We are thrilled to have product supportagain from Power Bar; we are pleased to have their assistance. Dan worked really hard all weekend giving us great feedback so we could improve the bike even further. I’d like to thank everyone for their support this season; we really appreciate it and are looking forward to our 2011 season.”
