McWILLIAMS TAKES HARLEY TITLE
September 1 2010.


Warr's rider Jeremy McWilliams put in a faultless performance at Cadwell Park on Bank Holiday weekend to take victory in the final race of the season and the overall championship winin the Henderson Harley-Davidson XR1200 Trophy. Jeremy's second race win of the day, and fifth of the season, took his final points tally at the top of the table to 165 and confirmed his title as 2010 champion.

Season-long title rival Mike Edwards made up for a disappointing DNF earlier in the day to finish 2nd, with James Webb finishing 3rd.

The start of the 10-lap race saw a four-way battle for the lead in the run up to the first corner, with Webb just edging in front. However, by the second lap, McWilliams made the move from 3rd up into the lead on the inside at Park. A race-long battle between Edwards, Webb and Alex Gault ensued, allowing McWilliams to build a gap at the front of the pack.

Edwards managed to survive a close coming together with Webb on lap three, and a near high-side on the top of the Mountain a couple of laps later to finish in 2nd behind McWilliams. It was then left to Webb and Gault to fight it out for the final podium spot, with Webb taking the advantage past the chequered flag.

Clearly delighted with his weekend's performance, McWilliams said: "Another win is just brilliant; I really enjoyed the afternoon race. The pace was red hot throughout. If I ever made a tiny mistake, I could see on my pit board that the guys behind had caught me so I couldn't lose focus for a moment." he continued.

"Warr's Racing has been super all year and as dedicated as any team I have ever ridden for. The Warr's technicians are absolutely the best and they have built me an extremely reliable and fast race bike. I want to say thank you to them and of course to crew chief Martin Szlagowski for all their hard work and support."

Jeremy's team mate, Canadian Superbike rider Darren James, also had an excellent weekend and managed to build on his points tally to end the season in 4th position, despite a previous lack of UK track knowledge. Darren said: "I absolutely love this track (Cadwell) and I could see my times improving throughout the weekend. The Warr's XR has been absolutely perfect all season and I can't thank the team enough!"

Team owner John Warr added: "It's fantastic that we have managed to make history by becoming the 2010 Champions. The amount of effort and skill required to keep a team together and performing faultlessly all season long is incredible. Well done to Martin and his crew, and of course to Darren and the maestro himself Jeremy McWilliams. Watching Jeremy - undoubtedly one of the best ever riders this country has produced - riding and winning on Warr's Harleys has been a privilege and an honour."
