BSB: iForce BMW Enjoy A Positive Weekend At Silverstone For Round One Of The Bennetts British Superbike 2022 Season.
iForce BMW overcame early adversity to finish strong during the opening round of the 2022 Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Silverstone.
The first qualifying session of the season saw solid performances from both riders, with Dan Linfoot having recorded a combined qualifying time of 53.240 placing him P9, while teammate Dan Jones qualifying just two tenths behind in P18.
The first race of the weekend got off to an eventful start as Dan Linfoot had a DNF on lap 11, as a result of an electrical fault. However, Dan Jones was able to finish his maiden BSB race and cross the checkered flag in a very respectable P21.
In the early stages of second BSB race of the Easter weekend, Linfoot was caught up in an incident that saw him lose out several places to fall back to P21. However, he managed to recover brilliantly, climbing back up the pack during the 30-lap race that saw him eventually bring the bike home in P12 and record the ninth fastest time of the race with 53.516 on lap 15.
In Race two, Dan Jones was not as lucky and was the victim of collateral damage on lap one, as his BMW was sent crashing to the ground after a collision with another rider. Thankfully, Jones walked away unharmed.
The team continued to improve during the third and final race of the Easter weekend. Despite a slow start due to a lack of rear grip, Linfoot remained resilient and finished in the points for a second time this weekend.
Jones recuperated after his fall in Race two and finished the weekend strong, climbing from the back of the grid in P30 to finish P22.
iForce BMW will next travel to Oulton Park for the BSB Test Day on April 21st.
