Old Leake rider Jack Drury made the step up to the Pirelli Super Series, and left Donington Park with three podium finishes.

Having already wrapped up victory in the No Limits Metzeler 600 Newcomers’ Championship by a massive 115 points with a round to spare, Drury (pictured) decided to test himself by making the step up.

After qualifying on pole, he finished with two seconds and a third place, with only experienced British Superbike riders Luke Jones and Sam Cox in front of him.

But despite a year to remember - which included a Superstock 600 wildcard entry at Cadwell Park - Drury’s campaign didn’t end the way he had planned when, in his last race of the weekend, and on the penultimate lap whilst pushing Cox for second, he lost the front of his Triumph 675 going into the Foggy Esses, leaving him and the bike in the gravel.

Drury got up and walked away with no injuries.

He has earned a total of 22 podium finishes this year, with 17 wins, four seconds and a third-place.

Drury is unsure of where he will be riding in 2016, but he is eyeing a run in the British Superbike support races in either Superstock 600 or Supersport.
