Moto 1 – Position 2
Waters qualified in 3rd but an on-track incident on Saturday relegated him three positions pushing him out of Superpole and into 6th.

Despite this Waters was able to get a great start out of the gate and shoot into the lead.

Falling into second place, Waters had a lengthy battle with Gibbs for the position and came out on top for his first podium finish of the weekend.

“IT WAS QUITE FUNNY, I STARTED OFF QUALIFYING, I JUMPED TOO FAR ON THE YELLOW FLAGS APPARENTLY SO I MISSED SUPERPOLE. FIRST MOTO I GOT INTO THE LEAD AND PASSED ALL THE GUYS AND WAS RIDING WELL BUT DEAN PASSED ME BACK AND GAPPED ME QUICKLY SO ENDED UP SECOND. SECOND MOTO I GOT MYSELF INTO SECOND AGAIN AND JUST FINISHED THERE WHICH GAVE ME SECOND FOR THE DAY. OVERALL IT WAS A GOOD WEEKEND AND THAT WAS PRETTY MUCH OUR DAY DONE! HAPPY TO FINISH UP 4TH OVERALL AFTER SOME TOUGH ROUNDS, A MASSIVE THANKS AS ALWAYS TO MY SPONSORS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR ALL THEIR SUPPORT.”
