Glenn Allerton shines in World Superbike Ride

February 23, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Glenn Allerton made the most of his opportunity to guest ride for the BMW Motorrad Italia SBK team following an injury to the permanent team rider Frenchman Sylvain Barrier

Qualifying saw Allerton start from position 19 on the grid on the EVO spec BMW S1000RR. An injury in qualifying didn't help in the starting position for Race One.

In race one Allerton finished a very creditable 11th well up from his grid position. He managed to get as high as 10th place, passing both Robbie Rolfo and Fabian Foret by lap 5, only to be re-passed by Rolfo on lap 8, relegating him to 11th. Allerton hung on to 11th for the remainder of the race and in doing so claimed 5 well earned WSBK Championship points. In finishing 11th he was the third EVO spec bike home behind David Salom on the Kawasaki Racing Team ZX-10R and Niccolo Canepa on the Althea Racing Panigale.

Race two saw Allerton start from P14 but unfortunately was not able to hang on and finished in P15, claiming another WSBK Championship point. The injury sustained in Qualifying stopped him pushing as hard as he wanted.

Allerton's best lap for the weekend was in Race One a 1:32.892.
