Following his maiden British Superbike Championship victory at Brands Hatch last month Josh Waters finally came of age in his short British Superbike career to date with three impressive finishes during the weekend’s triple header at Oulton Park.

The Australian build-on his ninth place in race two on Sunday with sixth in the third race whilst battling for the final podium position.

“In race one the conditions were a bit iffy and we went with an intermediate front and slick rear, so I was happy to finish where I did, especially with the track drying fast,” Waters explained.

“In race two I got a good start and was amongst the freight train battle for a podium position, so overall I very pleased with the weekend having three top 10 finishes.

“I felt like I rode a lot better and the boys put together a good package on the Tyco Suzuki GSX-R1000 so I’m leaving Oulton satisfied, but there’s more to come.”

With his recent run of form, Waters has now rocketed up to 10th in the standings following seven rounds.
