REJUVINATED Danny King revealed how performing back at his best with two new engines gave him the reassurance it was not user error on his bike!

King recently revealed how he “bit the bullet” in purchasing some new equipment after struggling earlier in the campaign.

He followed up his maximum at Plymouth for Poole on Tuesday with 14 points from five rides in Wednesday’s 55-35 win over Scunthorpe.

Speaking to the Daily Echo about freshening up his equipment, the former British champion said: “I was struggling with engines in the early part of the year, as everyone knows.

“It got to the stage where I couldn’t fix it for some reason.

“I just bit the bullet. Now I’ve got two brand new engines and I feel like I’m going back to where I should be.

“I just felt like I wasn’t riding badly but I wasn’t getting the results. The bikes weren’t doing what they were doing last year and that’s very frustrating as a rider.

“Sometimes you know when it’s you and you know when you are not riding great.

“But I felt like I was doing things right and it wasn’t happening.

“I am pleased that I have got some new engines and they are going good, that I am showing to myself that it wasn’t me! It was the equipment and hopefully now I can push on and finish strong.”

Victory over the Scorpions put Pirates back into second in the SGB Championship table, having ridden twice more than top-two rivals Glasgow.

Whoever claims second place in the division gains an automatic route through to the play-off semi-finals.

“We want to finish as high as we can and show other teams what we are about. We had a little blip ourselves it’s fair to say,” admitted King.

“We need to push on from that now and finish strong.”
