Hydrex Honda team boss Shaun Muir reckons he is frustrated by the weekend's British Superbike results despite both Stuart Easton and Tommy Hill finishing both races in the top five.

The likeable Northerner wanted to keep the momentum from Croft running and see some more podiums at Silverstone but a slight lack of pace meant they had to settle for fourth and fifth in both legs.

“It’s a measure of how far we’ve come as a team this season that I’m slightly disappointed and frustrated with the results today. For whatever reason, Stuart just didn’t have the pace to challenge this weekend and whilst he could do flat 1’26s all the time he couldn’t dip below them, which was what he needed to do to push the Airwaves riders," said Muir.


"After the highs of Croft it would have been nice to have kept at that level, or at least take some more podiums, but he got mugged on the last lap of the last race by Brookes so I’m sure he’s been kicking himself ever since it happened.

"I can’t be too hard though after his performances all year long and the triple header at Oulton will give him plenty of opportunities to put that right.”
“Tommy worked really hard all weekend and I can’t express enough how happy we all are with him. He was chasing a good setting all weekend and never did quite get the bike how he wanted so to come away with two fifth’s is a fine effort.

"He’s doing an excellent job for us and proving what a quality racer he is. If he’d had the same amount of track time as what the rest of the field have had, he’d be a definite podium contender and it would be nice if he could get on the box at Oulton. He’s doing everything we expected of him and he’s certainly putting himself in the shop window for 2010.”
