Dynavolt Triumph head to Brands Hatch and the final round of the 2021 Quattro Group British Supersport Championship this weekend. The 2.4-mile Kent circuit was the scene of the newly formed team’s maiden victory, courtesy of Kyle Smith back at round three in July.
Standing in for the injured Smith once again, Danny Webb will see the season out aboard the Dynavolt Triumph at what he considers his local circuit. After making such strong progress two weeks ago at Donington Park, Webb has every reason to look forward to his home round.
Danny Webb: “I love Brands Hatch, it’s a brilliant circuit. I grew up half an hour down the road so essentially it’s my home race so I’m really looking forward to getting back to Brands and racing. The natural progression should be that we should be again another step closer to the front and if we can make that step we will be very competitive. I’m looking forward to working with the team again and having a good weekend.”
With another two weeks recuperation under his belt, Brandon Paasch will be that much closer to full fitness for the final two races of 2021. Paasch gave a gutsy performance at Donington Park last time out, coming from the seventh row of the grid to fifth at the flag and is looking to end the year with another strong result at the season finale.
Brandon Paasch: “I’m really looking forward to this last round of the 2021 season, hopefully we can have a good round and go out on a high!”
Dynavolt Triumph Team Manager Simon Buckmaster: “We are looking forward to the last round at Brands Hatch. Unfortunately Kyle wasn’t able to be fully fit to ride so Danny Webb will continue to stand in for him. Danny made a big step at Donington and Brands Hatch is a track he knows well, he also knows the Triumph better now and should be in a good position to do a really good job for us and hopefully challenge right at the front for the podium.”
“The wet race at Donington was difficult for Brandon and so his qualification for race two wasn’t so good but he rode a good race, he got the second fastest lap of the race and came through to fifth. The secret for Brandon is to be fully concentrated from the word go, from Friday morning until the last lap on Sunday. If he does that he has the capability to challenge for the podium again and for the win. That’s what we’re working for. I’ll be working with Brandon to be fully ready and fast in every session. Obviously we are out of championship contention now but we are looking forward to the last races and finishing the season in British Supersport on a high with Dynavolt Triumph.”
Supersport action kicks off at Brands Hatch with Free Practice One on Friday at 09:35hrs (BST).
