New backer opens doors for Westmorland

1 of 2

James Westmorland raced his JW racing/JT Performance Triumph in British Supersport at Oulton last weekend with a new backer: Came (pronounced Camay), an international company specialising in electronic gates, security barriers and automatic bollards.

And the hope is that that the firm will back his 2010 racing programme.

Westmorland certainly gave the new backers value form money as he battled for the lead, setting  new lap record before eventually finishing second to title winner Steve Plater in the final round.

It rounded off an impressive end of season run for Westmorland who seemd to get to grips with the Triumph mid-term and in his last five races score two wins, the Oulton Park second,  a third and fourth – to assure him of third in the championship, only eight points behind runner-up Bill McConnell. 

Westy said: "I am happy with the race because I gave it everything – even though I didn’t manage to win. To get another lap record is incredible and that’s four in one season, which shows we have serious pace with the 675 Triumph.

“Steve was taking big risks and I couldn’t put a safe move on him towards the end of the race. What a fantastic season we have had this year.

"The consistency we have shown is incredible and we really have been the pacesetters of this championship for the past six or seven rounds.

“I must thank everyone who has shown faith and belief in me and JW Racing. I’ve worked with some incredible people this season, and it has been the most enjoyable season of my career so far.

“I hope people take notice of the success we have had, and realise how difficult it has been to challenge at the very front of the championship week in week out."
