NGK-sponsored Chrissy Rouse claims Donington double
Thursday, May 30, 2019
NGK-sponsored Chrissy Rouse has raced to two podium finishes in the latest round of the 2019 Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship for his Morello Racing Kawasaki team.
Having ironed out a few teething issues with the Kawasaki ZX-10RR in testing he posted fast practice times and was in contention for a win before eventually finishing 3rd in race 1.
A quick turnaround saw him back out on track for the second race and he again fought for the lead all race. On this occasion, he went one better with a 2nd place finish. The next day proved a disappointment as he failed to finish.
Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs said, “It was a fantastic performance by Chrissy to achieve a double podium at Donington and I’m sure the many NGK customers who are devoted motorcycle racing fans are looking forward to the next round of the championship at Brands Hatch on June 14-16 when he can hopefully emulate or even improve on the weekend’s performance.”
