Seton impressed by Buchan's progress
11:00am Friday 30th August 2013 in Sport
Danny Buchan registered a brace of top-ten finishes for Colchester-based team Seton Tuning Yamaha at Cadwell Park.
Buchan, from Burnham, was in good form at the latest Motorpoint British Supersport Championship round of action, in front of a huge crowd in Lincolnshire.
After finishing seventh in the opening 12-lap Sprint race, Buchan followed that up with a tenth-place finish in the main event.
Buchan said: “I’m pleased with how the weekend went, considering the lack of time we have had on the bike.
“We think we’ve found my good happy medium with set-up now.
“The team worked mega all weekend, as ever. I just wish I could have repaid them with a top-five in race two but a rider error caused me to mess up and drop a few places on lap one.
“I’m feeling comfortable now with the R6 and overall, I’m happy with the weekend and looking to move forward again at Donington and keep progressing.”
Meanwhile, Seton Tuning Yamaha’s James Mutton produced another solid and mature performance, in the Pirelli National Superstock 600 event.
After qualifying in 22nd, the young Australian rider became caught in traffic on the narrow circuit, dropping back to 31st.
However, Mutton remained undeterred to enjoy a strong ride over the remaining laps to bring his bike home in 22nd and maintain his qualifying position.
Team Principal Phil Seton said: “It was another good, strong weekend from both Danny and James.
“Cadwell is a very difficult circuit to learn and to go fast at, so for Danny to show that kind of progression and to get two top ten finishes is excellent. His confidence is coming back and his lap times are getting closer to the leading group.
“Danny’s fastest lap time of the weekend was only a tenth away from the fastest lap my Supersport has ever done at Cadwell, so it’s excellent progress in such a short space of time.”
Seton Tuning Yamaha are next in action at Donington Park, over the weekend of September 6-8.
