Thruxton BSB: Engine mapping changes positive for Ray

Buildbase Suzuki’s Bradley Ray is feeling more positive about this weekend’s Thruxton Bennetts British Superbike round after engine mapping changes at a Cadwell Park test cured some of the issues he experienced at Brands.

Ray, who made his Suzuka Eight-Hours debut last weekend, couldn’t get the feel he needed from his GSX-R1000 and the engine was also inducing push but the team’s technicians have come up with some solutions.

“Suzuka was a good experience, for sure. It was a shame we had the crash early on as I thought we could fight for the podium, but it was great to be involved with the Yoshimura team. My focus is firmly back on BSB now, and it was good to get out at Cadwell and spin some laps on my bike,” said the youngster.


“At Brands we got a little bit lost in trying to fix our problem with front end feeling, and we worked on the chassis and geometry. Since then the guys have been working really hard back at base and the Cadwell test was really positive. We’ve revised our engine mapping which was just pushing me on into corners when I was trying to stop the bike and get it turned. We’ve made big improvements though, and we’ll keep working from FP1 at Thruxton and hopefully have two good races on Sunday.”
