APRILIA RSV4-RF TRIUMPHS AT THE THUNDERSPORT ROUND AT DONINGTON PARK
British Supersport regular David Allingham was joined by George Stanley on EHA Racing Aprilia RSV-4 RF machinery at last weekend’s Thundersport round at Donington Park. The duo clocked up two wins from a handsome return of five podiums between them in the GP1 Sportsman & Elite class.
More impressive, is that the flame-haired duo were enjoying, only their first and second weekend of racing action aboard 1000cc Superstock machinery. British Supersport regular Allingham stood on all three Thundersport podiums on his 1000cc debut: a brace of second placed finishes clocked up either side of his race two victory on the EHA Racing prepared Aprilia. The Northern Irishman also took fastest laps in races two and three. 19-year-old youngster Stanley, who finished sixth in this season’s British Superstock 600cc class, also collected a well-deserved Thundersport victory and a fastest lap to boot on his RSV4 RF, from his front row qualifying position. He took ninth place in race one [and the aforementioned fastest lap] and was third in race two before taking his race three win, just 0.3sec ahead of team-mate Allingham.
