GL12 Racing Gets EMX300 Podium Double at Matterley Basin

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

The #emx300 series continues through 2016 with success for #yamaha, most recently at #matterleybasin where British privateers at GL12 #racing claimed two steps on the final podium for the home fans and took more valuable championship points midway through the 7­race series.

Brad Anderson won the overall with a victory in the first #moto and a second in race two, while teammate Gregory Lewis qualified fastest and went on to take third overall following a second and third in the motos. Changing weather conditions made for tough race conditions as sporadic rain showers temporarily darkened the hard­pack dirt on the long and challenging #matterleybasin circuit.

"The crowd was awesome, and it's so good to be on the top step at my home GP," said a jubilant Anderson after the final podium on Sunday. "Thanks to everybody who came over the fence to cheer me on, and the great first and third result for GL12 #yamaha."

GL 12 #racing Team Manager Bob Buchanan said Sunday's achievement at #matterleybasin came on the back of an equally positive weekend for results at Talavera, Spain.

"For me to stand on the podium at my home GP is a lifetime's ambition. We narrowly missed it last time we were here," Buchanan said. "Ando was top at Talavera as well, and for everyone at GL 12 #racing, the riders, mechanics, tuners, sponsors, family and friends; for all the little things they do along the way, they all played a part in this great achievement for our small, privateer team," Buchanan said.

Anderson now sits in fourth overall in the 2016 #emx300 Championship standings, 23 points shy of a podium with three races left in the series. Lewis sits slightly further back in sixth, 22 points out of a top five finish.
