Oulton Park Round 9 British SuperBike
Back home from a mixed weekend at Oulton Park. Had a really positive weekend, we had closed the gap to the groupand I felt better on the bike with times getting consistently quicker. After a bad start in the race & a false netural I closed the gap ahead of me and was having a good battle until I unfortuneatly tangled with another rider & crashed. I’m OK, just tweaked a few old injuries but I’ll hopefully be fit for Donnington this week. Thankyou to everyone for your messages and to my sponsors Modern Tyres, Team & Family.Connall Courtney

Courtney in the points on Team ILR debut
Last weekend's first round of the British Motostar Championship (Moto 3 Standard) at Silverstone saw Connall Courtney score six points on his debut for Team ILR. Practice and qualifying took place in changeable, tricky conditions and Connall finished the sessions in a positive 12th position on the grid and looking forward to improving in both of the weekend's races. However the weather would have the last word, with the organisers eventually being forced to abandon Saturday afternoon's scheduled first race. Race 2 on Sunday got underway in bright, dry conditions, and at the conclusion of the opening lap Connall was circulating mid-field with a big gap to the rider behind. By the halfway stage of the race, he had lost some ground on the leaders and was now coming under serious pressure from Peetu Paavilainen, and the two had a battle to the flag with the Finnish rider managing to pull away in the last lap traffic. So the conclusion of a hard weekend for the reigning Irish and Ulster 125/300 Production short circuit champion, but he'll be looking for better results when the championship moves on to Oulton Park in three weeks time.
Team ILR owner/manager Ian Lougher:
"The start of the 2016 season was not the easiest for the team as both our classes took the brunt of the weather, with mixed conditions making the correct tyre choice almost impossible. As sessions started with no-one making the correct choice, it became more of a track session for everyone than anything else. Connall is progressing from a good opening learning year in Northern Ireland to move to a highly competitive field in BSB. And although it is a hard task to move forward in this field, I feel he has the traits to come good if he keeps focused." Connall Courtney: "I had a great experience at Silverstone. It was great to finally get the first race out of the way. I'm very happy with the progress made throughout the weekend. And I look forward to hopefully continuing this at Oulton Park."
Irish & Ulster Champion 2015
In only his first full season of racing Connall & CCRacing secures the Irish & Ulster Championships in the 300 production class. Having had a few run outs on a RS125 it was nice to have a bit of reliability so he could concentrate on his racing, which he obviously done. It was a fantastic learning year for the Team, and with the help of Family Friends and our main Sponsors, ModernTyres, MotoTech & Martin Whyte Contracts I think the Team done a super Job.
