Dynavolt Triumph ready for penultimate round at Donington Park
Dynavolt Triumph return to Donington Park this weekend for round ten of the 2021 Quattro Group British Supersport Championship. For Brandon Paasch Donington Park has proved a rich hunting ground, the scene of his best results so far in the Supersport category back in August with two podium successes before injury struck at Snetterton.
After two brave top ten performances last weekend at Oulton Park, Paasch arrives at Donington Park feeling much further along in his recovery and ready to take another step towards his previous form at his adopted home round.
Brandon Paasch: “I’m really excited to head back to Donington, my ‘home race’ and it’s the track I’ve got my best results at this year. My wrist is feeling stronger by the day so I’m looking to build off of last week’s results!”
Danny Webb will make his second appearance for Dynavolt Triumph at the 2.48-mile Leicestershire circuit standing in for the injured Kyle Smith. The former Moto3 and World Supersport rider Webb is excited to get to a track he knows well as he continues to adapt to the Dynavolt Triumph.
Danny Webb: “I’m really looking forward to getting to Donington Park, it’s a circuit that I’m a bit more familiar with and it’s a bit more like the European circuits I’m used to so looking forward to getting there and getting back to working with the team and hopefully getting some good results in.”
Dynavolt Triumph Team Manager Simon Buckmaster: “Two rounds to go, it’s been an eventful BSB season for us, we’ve won races and we’ve had podiums. Kyle’s crash at Silverstone meant that we’re not in contention for the Championship any more but in the last two rounds we want to podium and challenge for wins if we can. Brandon’s performance at Oulton Park, considering his injury, was very good. I expect him to be stronger at Donington Park because he understands how to get the best from himself in his current physical condition and I expect his physical condition to be better. The secret will be that one lap in qualifying because at Oulton he did have the pace to run with the group. His fastest lap at the end of the race was very competitive so he should be in a good position.”
“For Danny not having been to Oulton Park for so many years and the first time on a Triumph was always going to be challenging, then he lost the first session with an electrical issue but now he understands the Dynavolt Triumph and we are going to a circuit he knows well so I’m looking forward to seeing what Danny can do. He enjoyed working with us and we enjoyed working with him. I’m optimistic, let’s see what we can do.”
British Supersport action kicks off from Donington Park with Free Practice One on Friday at 09:35hrs (BST).
