Ellison targeting Oulton Park winning performance

Tuesday, April 30 2013

James Ellison won on his return to the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship at the opening round and following recent testing, the Milwaukee Yamaha has high hopes ahead of this weekend's (4/5/6 May) Bank Holiday round at Oulton Park.

The Cheshire circuit is practically a home round for the Kendal rider and his army of supporters, who claimed his first ever podium in the Championship at the track back in 2008. The Milwaukee Yamaha team have a strong success rate at the track, claiming four of the six wins last season and coming off the back of positive tests recently they are ready to come out fighting for the victories this weekend.

Ellison said: "We have had two good podium finishes from the first four races, but at the same time I am obviously disappointed with the first races at Brands Hatch and Thruxton - hopefully that is my bad luck for the season done now! We had a test at Cadwell Park after Thruxton and that went really well and we made some more steps in the right direction.

"Oulton Park has traditionally been a good circuit for the team and it should be a good track for the Yamaha. It is one of the tracks where you really need to be comfortable and I think we are definitely getting there. We had a few laps at Oulton Park too last week, not as many as we would have liked, but enough to give us some more data so we can start free practice a bit ahead of where we would have been without it. We obviously want to close the gap in the points and put the Milwaukee Yamaha back on the podium at Oulton Park."
