Ulster GP: Anstey confident after Superbike podium

1 of 1

Bruce Anstey has said there’s more to come from him and the Padgetts Racing RC213V-S at the Ulster Grand Prix after a third-place finish in the Dundrod 150 Superbike race.

Anstey had run the same pace as race leader Hickman in the early stages but dropped back towards the end of the race, admitting he’d run out of steam after a long day featuring two practice sessions and two races for the New Zealander.

Just half an hour prior to the Superbike race getting away, Anstey had decimated the opposition in the Ultralightweight/Lightweight class to take the win on his RS250 by 36 seconds.


However, with his exotic MotoGP-replica RCV feeling good, he’s ready to take it to his rivals in Saturday’s two Superbike outings.

“We’re not far away,” he told MCN after the race. “We’ll give them a better run on Saturday. The bike is feeling awesome; it’s going really well. I just ran out of steam a bit today, it’s been a long day and I’m getting old!

"I had some fun on the 250, it’s a beautiful, proper race bike. This is an awesome circuit to ride around.”
