Richard Cooper finished on the podium in yesterday’s National Superstock 1000 race at Donington Park, taking second place with his 2017 Bennetts Suzuki GSX-R1000.

The two-part race, held at the sixth round of the World Superbike Championship, saw Cooper battle at the front for the opening half, as he, along with Danny Buchan, escaped the chasing pack. With four laps to go before the pit-stop, Cooper hit the front at the Esses but a mistake into the Melbourne Loop allowed Buchan to close in on him, before another mistake into Goddards saw him surrender his race lead.

Another attempt into the Esses on the final lap saw Cooper take the lead again, but he was re-passed was unable to mount another attack, crossing the line in second place.
