After a difficult qualifying session on Sunday, both Shane and Stuart had work to do in the race, coming from 13th and 23rd on the grid in the first race. Shane fought through the field and both benefitted from a stoppage mid race to clear oil from the track. Once he hit the front, the victory was secured and C4L were extremely proud to see him receive his trophy and obligatory champagne on the podium. The racing was even closer in the second race, with the first six riders within five seconds of one another at the chequered flag, which Shakey once again claimed.
The British Superbike championship is the highest profile motorsport series in the UK with extensive television coverage and race day crowds of over 40,000 people.

Paul Bird started the PBM team twenty years ago and he is the most successful manager in British motorsport history, with such a great start in the championships yesterday, local sponsors C4L are hoping for a record-breaking 2014.
Simon Mewett, CEO of C4L, said: “We are thrilled that Shane claimed both of the race victories at the opening round of the BSB championship. This was the first race featuring C4L’s logos on the bike, we were delighted it was such a success and are bursting with pride as sponsors of such a great team. As a growing technology company headquartered on the South Coast, there is a fantastic synergy between the team’s power and speed on the track and the performance of C4L’s technology and our new network, coreTX.”
