Walker to make three hundredth BSB start at Oulton

1 of 1

MCE British Superbike legend Chris Walker will make his three hundredth BSB start this weekend at Oulton Park in the opening race of the triple-header weekend.

Stalker, who took his last win at the Cheshire track back in 2012, says he’s looking forward to returning to one of his favourite circuits of the year.

“My first ever BSB Superbike pole position and BSB race win were here at Oulton Park and now to have my three hundredth race here on Saturday is going to be pretty special for me to say the least.

“Out of those 300 races in BSB, plus the many races I had in the World Superbikes, I’ve had so many special races and memories that I’ll never forget – but as the extra special one, that really stands out, was my last race win – again here at Oulton Park in 2012 on the Kawasaki ZX-10R with the Bournemouth boys.

“I had to pass two British Champions – Tommy Hill and Shakey Byrne – to get through to the lead on the last couple of laps and that was pretty cool. “

However, looking towards the future, the class veteran says that while he might be getting on, he’s still far from done!

“I was sort of involuntarily retired at Cadwell Park, when someone said I might not be back next year – but I’m already looking forward to being able to take my four hundredth start too!”
