Cook full of confidence ahead of Cadwell Park

Cook full of confidence ahead of Cadwell Park

25 August 2023

Rookie Max Cook narrowly missed out on a debut Bennetts British Superbike Championship podium finish last time out at Thruxton and now the Cheshire Mouldings Kawasaki rider is ready to carry the momentum into Cadwell Park this weekend.

Cook will make his first appearance on the Superbike at Cadwell Park and is ready to take in as much as he can as he continues his learning curve since progressing from the Pirelli National Junior Superstock Championship last season.

Cook said: “I think Thruxton went pretty good! I didn’t really expect to be right at the front to be totally honest; I had a totally open mind-set. I knew it was going to be fast and I think every track I have been to so far has felt completely different on the Superbike so I just had no expectations, thought I would learn from it, work out how to manage tyres and it totally went the right way. It seemed to suit my style and I had a great weekend straight from the off.

“To be running at the front, was something that I wasn’t expected but I felt comfortable riding with the boys with clean overtakes and good racing. The Kawasaki was working well and both myself and Lee were strong. It was awesome for the team, and me and Spud [Charlie Nesbitt] as rookies being up there.

“Heading into Cadwell Park it’s another different circuit and a complete opposite to Thruxton, it’s another leveller so I am going with an open mind set and carry this boat load of confidence that I gained at Thruxton into this weekend and just enjoy it.”
