VOL. 50 ISSUE 34 AUGUST 27, 2013 LOWES PERFECT IN BSB A lex Lowes claimed his first double win of the British Superbike Championship at Cadwell Park on Monday, August 26, but the Samsung Honda rider came under intense pressure on the final lap of the second race with Tyco Suzuki's Josh Brookes snatching the lead before crashing out. Brookes was pushing to close in on Lowes and on the final lap he made a lunge down the inside to hit the front of the pack again. Lowes was looking to get back ahead, but that pass never had to be made as Brookes made an error and crashed out of the race unhurt. Lowes claimed the double win as Samsung Honda celebrated at its home round while an emotional Tommy Bridewell scored his best-ever finish in the championship with a second place for Halsall Racing Kawasaki team. Milwaukee Yamaha's James Ellison completed the podium in race two ahead of Shayne Byrne. In the first race, Lowes held the lead from the start, despite coming under pressure from title rival Byrne and Ellison, who would later lose the spot to Brookes on the 12th lap. Two laps later and Ellison would crash out of the race. New Yorker PJ Jacobsen ended up a lonely fifth in race one, but was a non-finisher in race two. Byrne holds a commanding lead in the series over Lowes, 330-293. Brookes is third with 284 points. "The feeling is fantastic, winning like that in front of all those spectators," Lowes said. "It is like a fairy tale weekend for me and it has just been awesome. P29 Alex Lowes won both of the British Superbike races at Cadwell Park on Monday. I could not have asked for anything more and now I am looking forward to the rest of the season. It's not that long that I was sitting on those banks watching the likes of Neil Hodgson and waiting for my chance to get out there. Now I am here and winning the races, though they were hard and luck was with me in the second one." Californian Tommy Aquino celebrated the first win of season in the British National Superstock 1000 Championship, the WD40-backed Kawasaki rider ending up 2.1 seconds ahead of Lee Jackson. SUZUKI'S ULTIMATE HAYABUSA CHAMP s a part of Suzuki's 50th An- crowned and that winner was the Tempesta A niversary celebration at the Red Bull Indianapolis MotoGP, the winner of Suzuki's first-ever Ultimate Hayabusa contest was Break Lite Motorsports Wite-Out bike.
