Relentless British 125GP contender Lee Costello aims to improve on his disappointing results in the last four rounds of the 2008 season.
The Bolton rider sponsored by Vent-Axia comes to Cadwell Park following a DNF at the last three rounds, at Mallory Park his bike failed mechanically, due to another rider at Oulton Park he was forced off track and finally at Knockhill a rider came off in front of him, who he unfortunately came in contact with.
Costello said: “This year I just seem to be having bad luck, last year everything went right, but I had a slow bike, but this year I have a better bike, but bad luck.  Kevin from Vent-Axia seems happy with me and he says he knows its not been particularly my fault, but still it’s disappointing.”
He currently sits eighth within the championship on 63 points, which includes stepping on the podium twice with a third place and a win.  Following the first wet qualifying on Saturday morning Costello was disappointed with his fourth place that was hindered due to traffic, but was only a mere 0’00.3s off pole position.  However he made up for it in the second session by moving up to second by the end of the dry session.
Costello’s aim was to clinch the Championship title before changing championships, but the plan looks to have been shattered due to his non point scoring rounds.  He will continue to battle through to the end of the season as every competitive racer does before looking into his options for next year.
Due to age, his frame size and the preference of his main sponsor a change of category is on the cards for 2009, at present no definite choice have been made, but it will include a four stroke.  Costella said: “I would like to stay on the 125s, but it’s not possible and Kevin at Vent-Axia wants me to move up.” 
“Nothing has been decided and talks are still to be made, he wants me to try the Henderson R1 cup, but that’s just a possibility but we will see.  I am pretty sure, hopefully, that Vent-Axia intend to sponsor me next year, but where we will be is to be decided.”
