Lewis Rollo looks to end in style at Donington


MOTO star Lewis Rollo aims to end the season on a high and start next year in the limelight.

The National Superstock rider finished third in last year’s championship, but suffered an inconsistent campaign this time around.

Eighth in the championship standings with three races to go, he is looking to end the season on a high note to ensure he is ready for the next season.

The Championship heads to Donington Park this weekend and Rollo wanted to build a podium on the Leicestershire track earlier in the season.

He said, “This is one where you’re only as good as your last result.

“The team is happy with me, they like working with me and I with them. Hope we have something to work out for next year.

“It’s about ending the year on a high note and not just for me. Obviously, it’s good to go into winter with some good results and to keep confidence, but the team has worked very hard this year. They deserve good results and it would be nice to end the year on a high and hopefully sign with them again.

“It puts us in a good position to start next year.”

Rollo, who lives between Gifford and Haddington, has fond memories of Donington.

The 22-year-old produced an impressive performance in the wet to finish on the podium earlier this year behind championship leader Tom Neave and Luke Mossey.

Rollo said: “I’ve never really had a favorite track, but Donington has been good to me.

“I got my first National Superstock victory there and got a podium there this year.

“It’s a track I get on well with and for the Kawasaki it’s also a very good track.

“At the start of the year we had a good pace, but with problems we weren’t quite able to do it in the dry.

“I hope this weekend we start racing, have some good practice on Friday, qualify on Saturday and two good races.”

This weekend’s race follows two races at Oulton Park, where Rollo finished seventh and eighth.

Although the Lee Hardy Racing driver would have preferred to fight at the forefront, he was satisfied with the performance.

He said: “To be honest it was actually a good weekend as we had some mechanical issues in the last few heats.

“Walking into Oulton Park after finding what was wrong, we had a weekend where we had no issues. The results weren’t the best in terms of position, but we’re going forward with the bike and it was actually a good weekend overall.
