|Second win for Anstey in headline Ulster GP Superbike race!
Valvoline Racing by Padgett’s Motorcycles’ Bruce Anstey completed a fantastic double by taking the win in the shortened headline Superbike race on Saturday. The popular Kiwi has now recorded wins 3 times out of the last 5 visits since taking up with the Padgett's team and has managed to maintain his incredible record of podiums at every Ulster GP, North West 200 and Isle of Man TT for the last 14 years.
Team mate Dan Kneen took a tumble at the hairpin in the race and was unharmed other than cutting his hand picking up the bike in order to get back to the pits.
An additional celebration for Bruce's win was provided by a New Zealand spectator who performed the haka on the grid to the delight of the crowd.
Due to challenging conditions later in the day, Anstey was one among a number of riders who chose not to compete, Anstey instead turning up to the grid without a bike but a brolly in order to support his team mate. Kneen rode brilliantly on the slippery track to take 6th place and record the 3rd fastest lap time.
It's now a case of watch this space to see what's next on the team's 2015 agenda.
As always the team has worked incredibly hard to achieve its successes in 2015 and they would like to thank all their sponsors for their support and top quality products, without which, none of it would have been possible.
Finally, the team's thoughts are with the family and friends of Andy Lawson who tragically lost his life in the second Supersport race on Saturday.
