THE British fans were not disappointed at last weekend’s Moto GP round at Silverstone with at least one home grown rider winning an event.

Danny Buchan, the 21-year-old from Burnham-on- Crouch, gave the crowd something to cheer as he graced the top step of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 podium.

The Tsingtao Racing rider onboard the Kawasaki ZX10R had earlier achieved his seventh victory of the season beating his arch rival Jason O’Halloran into second place, with Lee Jackson in third.

This win gives him a 53 points advantage at the top of the table and with just three rounds remaining Buchan could, with a top three finish, clinch the title this coming Sunday at Donington Park.
