Bike racer Mark Fincham, sponsored by Bikesure, closed the gap on the leaders in the MRO 1000 Clubman series with two wins out of two at Oulton Park last weekend.

On a rebuilt bike and on a warm, sunny weekend, King’s Lynn-based Fincham clocked a personal best on the track in qualifying of 1.46.2 to put him on pole in his class.

In the first race of the weekend, Mark made a good start and spent the whole race mixing it with the Powerbike riders and leading the Clubman class, taking the class win ahead of the championship leader.

It was a similar story in race two, a blistering start putting Mark into fourth overall and first in class. After spending the whole race swapping places with the Powerbike champion from last year, Mark took another class win and set a new personal best of 1 minute 44 seconds around the three-mile circuit, not far behind the National Superstock riders’ pace of 1 minute 41 seconds.

The double class win ensured Mark stayed in fourth place in the Championship overall, but picked up 19 points on the leader. Norfolk fans can get a close-up look at Mark’s progress in the next round at Snetterton on June 22 and 23. Follow Mark on Facebook (Mark Fincham Racing) or Twitter @markfincham23.
