A Successful Laguna Seca Campaign for Team ADR Fly Racing
NEWS July 28, 2011
Last weekend saw the MotoGP at Laguna Seca combined with the AMA Pro National Guard Superbike and Daytona Sportbike Series, in which Team ADR Fly Racing embarked upon both the Superbike and Sportbike series, importing Scottish Moto 2 World Championship regular Kev Coghlan piloting the ADR #25 Yamaha R6 to a stunning 7th place and AMA Superbike rookie #33 Jordy Burgess finishing in the Top 15. A luckless Johnny Rock Page #269 missed out on qualifying for the main event by 0.30 seconds.
With Team owner and rider Aussie Dave Anthony absent from the superbike at this round due to a recent Back operation, the decision was made to build the team’s 2009 model R6 and field Scotsman Kev Coghlan who was fresh from Duties in the BSB the prior weekend and challenge the top runners at what was his maiden visit to Laguna Seca.
Adjusting to the bike quickly, the experienced Barcelona based racer qualified in a close 11th position whilst finding his feet and learning the track. In a stop-start race, Kev quickly made a solid start, coupled with some quick lap times and impressive passing maneuvers, found himself in 6th place before a red flag incident on the same lap saw the race finish early and his place be relegated back to 7th.
In the Superbike Race, Burgess qualified with a low 1:28 lap time to put him in 18th for his first race at Laguna Seca amongst the experienced field. The bike remained unchanged coming into the race as Burgess was sure he could push through and improve in the race. Once the race got underway, Burgess found himself in a battle for 14th with BMW rider and fellow Australian Chris Trounson. the pair fought back and forth with Jordy leading into the final lap when a blue flag incident saw Trounson gap Burgess, leaving the ADR rider having to settle for 15th place.
