Waters: "Thruxton looks similar to tracks at home"

Rookie Waters is feeling positive ahead of Thruxton

Milwaukee Yamaha riders Josh Waters and James Ellison are heading to Thruxton for the second race of the 2013 British Superbike championship feeling optimistic and focused. 

Moving to British Superbikes this season, Waters is a former Australian Superbike Champion and is ready for the challenge facing him at a new circuit. He left Brands Hatch feeling positive, after securing a top ten finish on his maiden weekend.

The 26 year old revealed“Looking at Thruxton it seems to have very similar characteristics to the tracks we have back home in Australia so for me that is pretty cool. I think I learnt a lot from the first round last weekend so we just need to keep moving forwards with things and get two good results. The Milwaukee Yamaha feels good and I am looking forward to this track as it looks really fast.”

Teammate to Waters and Brands Hatch race 2 winner James Ellison is focused on continuing his winning momentum, and is excited to see what this weekend can bring.

The 32 year old has been a podium finisher for Yamaha at Thruxton in the past and returning to BSB after a year in MotoGP, he will be keen to pick up from where he left off.

Ellison said “This weekend is one I am really looking forward to and if myself and the Milwaukee Yamaha team continue to work as hard as we have been then I am sure it will continue to pay off. It is a fun circuit and one that we have seen in the past that the Yamaha really works well around. I think we definitely have the potential of another good weekend and hopefully the chance to be back on the podium for the Milwaukee team.”
