The battle for the 2014 TriStar R&G Triple Challenge resumes this weekend at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire, as the series enters the exciting final stage. With the total points amassed being halved following the conclusion of the previous round, the top four in the Championship are now covered by just 10.5 points. In the Cup class, the leading two are split by a mere six points with four rounds remaining.
It was Sam Cox who dominated at the high speed Thruxton circuit last time out, taking pole position and both race wins. With title rivals Pett, Atkinson and Pitchers only achieving one podium each, the four riders are now split by just 10.5 points meaning it is all to play for with four rounds remaining. In the Cup class, an outstanding run of six consecutive victories has seen Sam Thompson take the Championship lead from Andrew Lund, currently heading the standings by six points.
The 2.18 mile picturesque Cadwell Park circuit is a firm favourite amongst riders and fans alike, with thousands of spectators typically packing the banking opposite the main straight. Featuring a mix of fast, flowing corners as well as slow speed sections, the highlight is still the infamous ‘mountain’ section which sees riders jump into the air.
T3 Racing owner and series organiser Tony Scott is looking forward to returning to Cadwell Park, “The Bank Holiday Cadwell Park weekend is always a fantastic event and a real highlight of the calendar. The large crowds always give amazing support to the riders and I’m looking forward to seeing that again this weekend, particularly with the series being as close as it is.
Including this weekend, there’s just four rounds remaining and I’m excited to see how the remainder of the year will pan out, with at least eight riders still in with a realistic chance of lifting the final TriStar R&G Triple Challenge crown it’s all to play for!”
