Cook remains upbeat despite disappointing Snetterton performance

Swindon superbike star Max Cook will focus on bouncing back to form in the next round rather than dwelling on his disappointing performance at Snetterton this weekend.

Two finishes outside the top 10 saw Cook slip down the standings in the HEL Performance British Motostar Championship, but Cook immediately set his sights on round six at Thruxton in two weeks time.

Over the weekend, Cook suffered a crash in qualifying and a blowout of his exhaust in race two, as he came home 13th and 14th in his two races.

While Cook admitted he was disappointed with both races, he felt there wasn’t much more he could do as he struggled to find enough opportunities to pass his nearest rivals.

Looking ahead to Thruxton however, the 13-year-old says he must focus on getting fired up right from the off in order to compete for a top 10 finish.

Meanwhile there was a complete contrast in fortunes for fellow Swindon rider Charlie Nesbitt, who claimed two dominant victories in both Motostar races.

The 15-year-old cruised to victory in both races and now leads the championship by 57 points.

“It’s sweet to be leading the championship by 57 points,” said Nesbitt.

“In both races I just tried to get my head down as soon as I could and get some clear track in front of me and see what I could do.”

The next round of the championship is on July 22nd to 24th.
