Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup Sponsorship

Salus Approved Inspectors will be sponsoring Sam Middlemas for a fourth consecutive year in the Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup 2019, a support series for the extremely popular and well regarded televised British Superbike Championships.

This year, Sam has joined Team Boast and along with team mate Josh Wainwright are focussed to be at the sharp end of the grid. Pre-season testing went well with both Sam and Josh in the top 5 in all sessions.

Race by race review 2019

ROUND 1

SILVERSTONE NATIONAL 19 – 21 APR
Race 1
Sam Middlemas Position 6th – Time 14:37.838
Race 2
Sam Middlemas Position 6th – Time14:38.667

I finished 6th in both races and beat my previous lap time from last year. Race 1 was going well and I made it up into the top 5 only to be hit by a fellow competitor moments later relegating me back down the order. I still ended 6th. Considering this was my first race back from a shoulder injury I was quite happy with how the first round went. We hadn’t done much testing in comparison to previous years and managed to iron out bike issues throughout the weekend. We came away 5th overall and 5th in the Championship.

ROUND 2

OULTON PARK INTERNATIONAL 4th, 5th, 6th APR
Race 1
Sam Middlemas Position 8th
Race 2
Sam Middlemas Position 9th

I had hoped for a repeat of last years podium. However a bike issue in qualifying meant I missed the final 5 minutes of qualifying on a drying track meaning I set my best times with the rain falling. I started 12th due to this and made it up to 8th in race 1 and then a red flag stopped the race at just over half distance halting any further progress. In the last race I got a great start and was up to 4th position. Unfortunately my gear change fell apart meaning I was struggling to change gear and it meant I fell back to 9th which was frustrating  but at least we got up to where we should be if only for a number of laps.
Onto our local round at Donington next.
