With Friday practice a complete wash out, the team worked tirelessly on Saturday to get the bike race ready. Qualifying in second place on Saturday, Rendell was set for another tantalising race with expectation of another podium finish. Setting off from the grid Rendell maintained an impressive second place ahead of championship leader Tom Carne. With just three laps to go the leader was struck with a technical problem ending his race early, Rendell moved up to first and with two laps to go, victory in sight! However disaster struck on the penultimate lap; Rendell’s rear tyre lost grip on the final corner sending rider and bike across the track. Rendell is devastated with this result and hopes his luck will fall into place when the team travel to Assen for the next round of the British Superbikes.
Rendell reports: ‘I came so close to the top step today and feel gutted that I didn’t get it. I have thrown away this weekend’s race win, and with three rounds remaining it’s going to be tough. Although devastated, I travel to Assen in two weeks, a new circuit for all the top runners! You can follow all the action from the next round on my twitter @edrendell12’
