Engine revamp revitalises Wilsden rider Lund's challenge

First published in Sport by

WILSDEN motorbike rider Andrew Lund returned to form with two podium places in Tristar R&G Triple Challenge Cup Championship at Thruxton.

It came following an engine rebuild on his Triumph Daytona 675R after a fault was discovered following a bad previous meeting at Snetterton.

A broken piston ring had meant Lund was running well down on power at a circuit with huge straights, which saw him lose 53 of a 55-point lead.

However, the TSL Buntons Racing rider was back in the mix at Thruxton with a second and a third, despite tyre issues in the second race on what was his first visit to the circuit.

Lund, aged 41, is now just six points behind leader Sam Thompson in the overall standings. Thompson has won six successive races, having won both at Thruxton.

With four rounds, featuring eight races, to complete the season, there are still 200 championship points to play for in the competition, which is a support series of British Superbikes.

The next round takes place at Cadwell Park during August bank holiday weekend – a spectacular event which attracts over 50,000 spectators.

Lund’s Bunton Plant Hire and Temp Station-backed team are looking for additional sponsorship to ensure they can complete the season.
