Railton targets Donington delight at second Challenge round

Jonathan Railton had the dream start to his Ducati TriOptions 848 Challenge campaign when he celebrated a double victory at the season opening round at Brands Hatch and now is aiming to maintain his winning streak at Donington Park next weekend (24/25/26 May).

Railton combines his racing in the Challenge along with the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship, but intends to push hard again as they join the programme for the Superbike World Championship event at the Leicestershire circuit.

Railton said: "The opening round surpassed our expectations really. I hadn't ridden the bike in the dry before free practice on Friday so tried to stay open minded, but I felt comfortable straight away on the bike and the handling was almost perfect. To set a new lap record in both races and come away with two race wins was fantastic.

"Donington is a circuit I enjoy and it suits the 848. I am confident that I can battle for podium positions at the very least. I've tested at Donington and made a few changes to the Brands Hatch settings since the last round. There are couple of things I still want to try, but it has given me and the team a direction for the race weekend and that was a big benefit of the test we had. 

"The goal is definitely to try and pick up where we left off at Brands Hatch, but it won't be easy. I'm sure Mike Edwards, Marty Nutt and numerous other riders will have been working hard over the five week break to improve. It's going to be another busy weekend with my Superstock commitments that weekend as well but I am looking forward to it."
