After picking up his first podium of the season last time out at Cadwell Park, Clubman 600 rider Cam Harris headed to Snetterton with BEMSEE last weekend looking for more good results.
The 2017 Rookie Minitwin champion has by his own admission struggled at some points this season to adapt to life on the YZF-R6, but he has continued to chip away and make gradual improvements since Brand Hatch in March.
After qualifying 6th in the Clubman class, he battled with Mark Turner during the opening contest to take 5th spot by just 0.094s. That would prove to be the best result of the weekend, as he took a 7th later that day, followed by 6th and 7th on Sunday.
With to work on the bike between now and the next round at Donington, the Harris Performance rider is confident of improved results in the near future as he continues to adapt to life on the supersport machine.
In Cam’s former class, front runners Charlie Crawt and Robert Breen both took podium finishes in each of the four races, with Crawt taking two wins on the Sunday to further boost his title challenge hopes.
Elsewhere, other Rookies were having a great weekend as Shane Beasley took three wins in the Thunderbike Sport class and Robert Breen went one better with four-in-a-row in the Thunderbike Extreme races.
The battle for the MRO Minitwins title also heated up, with an unfortunate disqualification for series leader Mason Williams before he bounced back to take 2nd behind Dan Singleton in Sunday’s opening contest. The pair battled it out again later that day, as Singleton took 2nd and Williams 3rd. It was a slightly more difficult weekend for fellow competitors Wil Green and Dan Harris, with Wil making a few uncharacteristic mistakes of the Faith Fueled Racing machine and Dan battling illness to take a weekend high of 5th on Sunday morning.
Next up it’s Donington Park in June for BEMSEE, as the season hits the midway point.
