Delves aiming for a quick recovery at Silverstone

Ben Tyler 28th Aug, 2020

A TROUBLESOME afternoon at Snetterton was in store for Liam Delves in the second round of the Pirelli National Superstock 600 Championship on Sunday.

The Birmingham racer crashed out after a collision with two rivals on the track, despite appearing in control up to that point following a smooth ride in qualifying.

A third-place finish gave the 20-year-old’s hopes of a podium finish the world of good, having previously impressed in Saturday’s free practice despite some technical complications, so the collision in the third lap came as a hammer blow to Delves.

Speaking on the crash, which occurred after an attempt to make a charge on Championship leader Ben Luxton in third place, he said: “I got away with the leading group and started to move forward, and then I got sandwiched between two other riders that were out of control trying to win the race on lap three.

“I will now regroup and be ready to attack at Silverstone in two weeks’ time [September 4-6].”
