Rory Skinner scored an eighth placed finish in Sunday’s opening race for round two of the 2024 Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Cheshire’s Oulton Park circuit, had to sit out Monday’s proceedings after a horror crash during morning warm up. Thankfully the Cheshire Mouldings BMW Motorrad team rider was not badly injured but was taken to hospital for checks and missed both the day’s races.

Speaking at the conclusion of the weekend, Rory said: “After the positives from Sunday we were brought down to earth with a bump yesterday. I’m a bit battered and bruised but there are lots of positives to take from what we have achieved so far with the Cheshire Mouldings BMW and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season. Thanks to everyone who contacted me wishing me well. It means a lot.”

Team Principal Philip Neill added: “Rory has settled in well and Sunday’s result was something to build on, but racing can sometimes have a cruel way of putting an embargo on your plans. For us as a team, the most important thing is his welfare, so we are delighted he came away from this yesterday’s incident relatively unscathed. It’s disappointing for him to have missed the final two races but from what we have seen so far, there will be plenty of good times ahead.”
