RICHARD COOPER TO RACE

RICHARD COOPER TO RACE SUPERBIKE AT BRANDS HATCH

Back to news

Richard Cooper will race in the Superbike class at this weekend's final British Superbike championship round of 2017, as well as contesting in the Superstock 1000 class, of which he is a championship challenger.

While Cooper admits the Superstock title is a tall order, sitting 15 points off the series lead with just one race left, the Nottinghamshire ace is aiming to end the campaign on a high, and add another race win to his impressive season tally.

However, after racing the Superbike at Assen, and with his teammate, Taylor Mackenzie, unfortunately out injured this weekend, Cooper made for an obvious choice of stand-in for the final round.

Cooper, who will also race in the classic GSX-R livery he debuted at Assen, said, "It's going to be a busy weekend, riding both the Superstock bike and the Superbike, but it was an opportunity that would be a shame to miss. Of course, it's never nice when your teammate is injured, but with the bike already built for Assen, it was easy for me to step in for the team to run a second Superbike.

"With Superstock, the aim is to win the race. The rest is out of my hands. Either way, we have had a good season and won a lot of races. With the Superbike, after racing it at Assen and at the Stars of Darley meeting, it's beginning to feel like my bike now, and I'm looking forward to having three races on it over the weekend."
