Paterson Racing was making their second trip to Knockhill, this time in the reverse direction, in the 2016 Championship and it was to prove to be a frustrating weekend for Torquil on both his Yamaha and the Perth Motorcycles MV Agusta. Lewis had his best outing of the season on his Cupar Motorcycles Suzuki 650 with improving finishes and more experience on the bike.

Lewis Paterson

Lewis had a good qualifying session and first race, where he managed to keep up with the quicker bikes on his standard engine bike. He was feeling happy with the bike and how it was handling.  The second race of the weekend he had a good start and was trying to stick with the leaders but the lack of power just eliminated his chances of catching the front runners. It was a solid Saturday for Lewis.

On to Sunday and Lewis knew if he could get a good start he would stay with the front runners and thats exactly what he did. Lewis’s pace was very good considering the power he had and had 3 solid finishes inside the top 5. Lewis was pleased with his weekend and he knows he can run with the front runners.


Torquil Paterson

Torquil was riding 2 bikes at the weekend. His own Yamaha and also the Perth Motorcycles MV Agusta. Torquil struggled with pace and setup all weekend round the 1.27 mile circuit, and had his worst results of the season.

Torquil had his shock done in between the rounds by Jamie Black and this proved a much better feeling then previous. The MV Agusta had never been raced before so this would take time for Torquil to get to grips with the bike. Torquil quickly got the hand of the new machine and was enjoying the pace of the new bike.
