Winning by 0.001 seconds - on the grass

Thu, 13 Sep 2012

Last weekend's Superstock 1000 race at Donington British Superbikes was a belter. PJ Jacobsen, all the way of the USA, was riding the Tyco Suzuki and took the fight to former Superstock 600 champion and TT racer Lee Johnston.

The duo cleared off from the rest of the pack.

It came down to a last lap battle and the closest finish I've ever seen but to top it off, PJ Jacobsen was run all the way out to the line and beyond, as he took to the grass but still managed to beat the hard-charging Johnston to the line just a thousandth of a second.

We reckon PJ owes this one to his Dirttrack experience back in the US. Not bad for your third appearance in the BSB's top Superstock class..
