"Personally I didn’t have the best start and took too long to get into the groove, so I just took it on the chin," said a slightly disappointed Duggan after his 12th place finish.

"It’s still the best result I have had but we know what I need to improve for the next round.

"I couldn’t have done it without the help of Tye Kinton Rider Coaching and Sam, as well as input from Benny and JR Performance with the parts and machine knowledge.

"None of this would be possible without all my sponsors – B.O.M Batteries, Sure Sleep Beds Doncaster, DRC Race Leathers, WSC-Performance, Surefit Carpets Doncaster. ”
