Buildbase Suzuki’s Richard Cooper extended his points lead in the National Superstock 1000 Championship today, winning at Snetterton on his GSX-R1000R as the season passes the halfway point.
Cooper topped every session over the weekend, including setting pole position in qualifying by a whole second. He went on to win the 12-lap race by two and a half seconds, and now holds a 42.5-point advantage in the championship standings.
Richard Cooper, "We can’t be anything other than happy with the weekend; topping every session, taking the win, and more importantly extending the championship lead.
"We’re in a really good place with the bike, to the point I pretty much just get on it and ride it in each session, and the team did another brilliant job this weekend. I’m really enjoying my racing and hopefully it continues now for the second half of the season."
