Lexelle-sponsored Tarran Mackenzie had his first double points scoring round in the Red Bull Rookies Cup last weekend at the Sachsenring in Germany.

Once again Tarran was hampered with a bad grid position as his team failed to get his gearing sorted for the steep climbs at the German circuit.

His bike and lap times were much better for the races and he fought hard for his two 15th positions.

Tarran said: “‘I messed up in qualifying but I had to work extra hard in both races so the good thing is it has made me a stronger rider.

“I know if I get my qualifying sorted I will run in the top ten. The weekend was tough but I am in good shape for BSB at Brands this weekend.”
