Swindon superbike star Max Cook is hoping to hit top speed this weekend in the Motostar British Championship as he returns to one of his favourite circuits, Cadwell Park.
The Lincolnshire circuit was a happy hunting ground for the 13-year-old last year as he claimed three wins from four races at Cadwell Park en route to claiming the Aprilia Superteen title.
Cook hopes to draw on last year’s “good memories” and go even faster in his Honda-powered Moto 3 this weekend in round eight of the Motostar Championship as he bids to improve on his 10th position in the standings.
“I have good memories there (Cadwell Park),” said Cook. “I clicked with the bike last year and I was fast and really enjoyed the circuit. It was just awesome.
“The team have worked on the bike since Brands Hatch so I’m really looking forward to riding the Moto3 and enjoying it even more.
“Things between rounds have been going well too. I’ve had some great Supermoto races in the Cool-FAB British Junior Championship.
“I’ve finished my homework and I’ve been working hard my new trainer Dan Maxwell, which has been hard but great fun.”
After seven rounds of the championship, Cook is tied on points with ninth-placed Mike Brouwers while the youngster took the overall lead in the R&G Rookies’ Trophy standings.
“That was a nice surprise (to take the overall lead in the R&G Rookies’ Trophy),” said Cook. “I’m leading the R&G Rookies’ Trophy. I’ll have to try and stay there now.”
Cook’s races get underway at 2.10pm on Sunday and 3.10pm on Bank Holiday Monday.
Sunday’s race can be seen live on Eurosport.
