Over the weekend it was round 3 of the World Superbike Championship, taking place at the TT Assen Circuit in the Netherlands.

After some good practice sessions and qualifying laps, Tarran managed to qualify in 14th for race 1. Tarran got off to a good start in race 1 managing to maintain good speed and finishing 14th to claim his first World Championship points.

For race 2, Tarran picked up where he left off from race 1 and improved on his lap times, managing to jump ahead 3 places into 11th where he eventually finished the race. This meant even more points for Tarran in the Championship standings, moving him up 5 places.

This is what Tarran had to say on the on the weekend: “Considering it was snowing when I arrived in Assen, the weekend didn’t turn out too bad for the third round in my World Superbike career. I’ve always liked the Dutch circuit, but freezing weather definitely took the edge off things this time round. That said I was constantly in the top ten throughout practice and eventually qualified in 14th for Saturday’s race. A steady first lap saw me lose places, but I fought back to grab my first world championship points of the season”.

Tarran then went on to say: “Sunday’s long race start was much better where I bolted myself on to Garett Gerloff and Xavi Vierge for the whole race to come home three places better in 11th position. There’s still work to be done but I took decent steps forward over the weekend in many areas”.

Next up for Tarran is 4 days of testing at 2 Italian circuits before the next round of the World Superbike Championship which takes place in Misano, Italy, on the 14th to the 16th of June.
