Cal Cooper at Snetterton extends lead in Aprilia RRV 450 championship

Cal Cooper extends lead in Aprilia RRV Championship at Snetterton.

Held on the modified old Snetterton circuit in Norfolk, JDF Racing's Manxman, Callan Cooper extended his lead from 50 to 82 points over the weekend.

The still superfast Norfolk circuit was a challenge to the riders in very changeable conditions, tyre and gearing choices were always going to be the key to achieving the best result possible.

With the exception of Colchester rider Tom Oliver all the front runners in the series had falls over the two days racing in the testing conditions. In addition to the wet and damp track situation, the wind speed and direction changes caught a number of the riders out including Callan.

Cal Cooper "I had worked my way to the front on the last lap and new it was going to be a grandstand finish for all of us. The key at this track is to get yourself in a good position with regards slip-streaming on the drag out of the final corner. The rider who leads out of this corner dragging two or three riders with him will not usually take the win, the wind caught me out going onto the back straight, great race though and a good win for Tom!"

Despite the fall leading the second race on the Saturday, Cooper put in mature performances with three podium results including a win in race one on the Sunday.

The Rockingham circuit hosts the sixth round of the series.
