‘Spike’ Edwards eager for Donington Park

Mike 'Spike' Edwards lies joint second in the Ducati TriOptions 848 Challenge standings ahead of the second round at Donington Park next weekend (24/25/26 May) as the Brands Hatch double podium finisher gears up for the next races of the season.

Edwards shared a second and third place with Marty Nutt at the season opener and is feeling confident ahead of the two races next weekend as he bids to continue his podium-finishing momentum. Edwards trails championship leader Jonathan Railton by 14 points following his double win at Brands Hatch and is hoping that his experience can help him to close the advantage.

Edwards said: "The first round went as we expected to be honest; with new riders coming into the series it's always difficult to tell who is going to do what. When you race in a series a good start and racking up points early is the way to go. With a second and third place leaving me in joint second place in the standings it was a good day at the office!

"Jonathan was a complete unknown to me until the first race where he proved to be a real threat but there is a long way to go in the Challenge and I'm looking at the long game, I know my strengths and I'm prepared to bide my time and rack up those points through the year, however life at the sharp end is tough and with riders like Mr. Railton just gets tougher.

"I like Donington and know the P&H Ducati works well there, even though we haven't tested there on the bike this year I'm confident we have a great chance this time around. I've turned lots of laps at Donington this year with clients on my unique 1-2-1 on track coaching scheme - but none of them were riding the 848 Ducati; mind you! I've been going to Donington for 30 years, so I sort of know my way around. I've not actually seen or ridden the Ducati since Brands, so when the boys rock up with it at the weekend, I hope they've run over it give it a polish, and we'll just see how we get on! I was proud to win the memorial Tom Wheatcroft Trophy in the classic event there last year and a double rostrum in the 2012 Ducati Challenge so fingers crossed for this year."
