David is a ‘supersport’! thumbnailDavid Allingham on track and on board the EHA racing Yamaha at Brands Hatch.

EGLINTON motorcyclist David Allingham got off to a fantastic start at Oulton Park on Sunday as the Supersport 'superstar' confirmed his fantastic pace on board the EHA racing Yamaha by finishing third in the opening 'sprint race'.
David had previously qualified in fourth place for the scheduled 12 lap dash and made his now customary lightning start to lead the pack as they sped into the first corner.
Once the frantic laps had settled down, he was running a steady 4th place and on lap six, swept under Keith Farmer to take up third place and set about closing the gap to the leaders Tarron McKenzie and Andy Irwin, setting a quick enough pace to record the races fastest time of 1 min 37.999 seconds.
As the clouds overhead darkened, Irwin made a mistake and David was through and into second, however by now, spots of rain were making the tarmac slippery and the race was halted during the tenth lap, giving David a finishing third place.
