Neary takes third place in championship

0

LYMM motor cyclist Sean Neary secured third place in the Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup after the two final races in the championship at Donington Park.
Going into the final two races, the Team SMC rider still had an outside chance of actually winning the championship and began the first 10 lap affair from the head of the second row in fourth place. After completing the first lap in fifth place he passed Josh Wainwright for fourth place and began to close in on the top three riders.
On lap five championship leader Josh Day made a mistake and ran off the track which gifted Neary third place. As the race unfolded Neary was pushing hard and closing up to Rob Guiver who held second place but in turn Neary was being hunted down by Wainwright who had found a second wind and was anxious to take third place. But Neary was not to be denied and crossed the finish line to take third place and his 10th podium finish of the season.
He said: “I am really disappointed with the race. As the season goes, I feel like I rode well but my first lap today was terrible. I was closing in on Josh and Rob and I could see they were having a battle but at the pace they were going, you are closing a few tenths but its not like you are eating into them. With two laps to go I thought, right we are on here. I had gained on Rob but unfortunately I came together with a back marker and that put an end to my challenge. But a massive thanks to the SMC team, the bike was brilliant.”
In the second race, Neary started from a front row grid position and moved up into third place but then dropped to fourth on lap two. He ran wide on lap five and lost ground to sixth position but pushed on to end the race in fifth place. The points accrued were just not quite enough to secure the runner up spot in the championship and he ended the season just three points back in third place.
