Tarran Mackenzie Returns at Donington


On Sunday 22nd May, Tarran Mackenzie returned to action after two months out injured, at the British Superbikes event at Donington. In his first of three races he managed a very respectable 10th place, before an even more impressive 6th place in the second race of the day.

He then finished 11th in the third and final race, leaving him 15th overall in the Championship, making for a very successful return overall, given the length of his enforced break from racing. Here’s what Tarran had to say about the event:

“I had no expectations coming into this weekend so I didn’t know where I was going to be in terms of bike fitness. To do my fastest ever lap around here in qualifying was great, it wasn’t really something I was expecting. I was quite happy with tenth yesterday but being sixth in the second race was great, a couple of people fell off but I had a lot better pace and was riding with some good riders.

The last race was a bit tricky as I used everything I had in the second race. I had a good first few laps but I had nothing left after the safety car, so I wanted to get around and score some points and that’s what I did. I had nothing left, but to have a handful of points is something to build on so bring on Knockhill.”

Tarran’s next race at Knockhill will take place between Friday 17th and Sunday 19th of June, giving him a great opportunity to get closer to full fitness.
