GP2  results 8th in race 1 followed by a win in race 2.

Sunday a brillant dry day.

Cadwell Park

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Qualified 2nd in the dry.

Saturday race 1 i made a bad tyre choice for me, just glad to get the bike home in 10th in the 450 race. Race 2 was a lot better had a 4 sec lead when the dash lit up red the bike was over heating. I had to back off to ended the race in 2nd.

GP2 Saturday managed two 4th’s against some very quick riders.

Sunday it was very wet which was very lucky for me as i wouldn’t have been able to race in the dry as my bike was drinking more water than me.

Results 450 class a 4th and 3rd . GP2 one win and a 3rd.

Anglesea GP2 and 450

Qualified on pole in the dry on a track i love riding

Saturday we had very mixed weather conditions and with that came a mixed set of results. This the 1st year on Bridgestone tyres with a suspension upgrade aswell i don’t seem to be able to get a set up i am happy with yet. Once a have heat in the tyres in the dry the feeling is really good and laps are normally the quickest. In the 450 class 5th and 3rd, GP2 4th and 2nd.

Sunday a dry day but very cold.

results 450 class two 2nds and a track record. GP2 two wins and the track record.

Donnington Park Gp2 round 2

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Qualified 14 due to crashing after my 1st quick lap on oil from a bike that had blown up.

Saturday my Dad and a couple of friends rushed to fix my bike just in time for me to be out in race 1. I was so sore i had gone down hard on my back smashing my helmet and riping my leathers.

Race 1 and 2 i managed to get up to 4th and 5th.

Sunday still really stiff i managed to get up to 2nd and 3rd. Not a bad weekend after all.

Donnington Park WSB 1st 450 round

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

I manage to be on pole . Race one on the saturday i didnt start that strong and within a couple of laps 1st place had over 3.5 sec on me . I put in some of the fastest laps of the race and managed to bridge the gap . With a bit of a battle and being a second or more quicker a lap  i crossed the line to win 1.3 a head of second place.

Race 2 at 9.30 Sunday morning it was a lot colder and i wasnt prepare to risk a dnf as people were crashing around me . I did manage to make ground on 1st place , but in the end had to settle for 2nd.

2011 GP2 Mallory Park

Monday, March 21st, 2011

I had a good start to the new season managering pole on saturday, a win and a 3rd . On Sunday for the 1st race conditions changed and being my 1st weekend on the Bridgestones it took me a few laps to feel comfortable and by this time it was too late to fight for the win and came home in 2nd . In the second race it was much better and chased down 1st place in the closing laps. I had it all set up for the last lap but a back marker showed up just in the wrong place so it was another 2nd but just 0.03 off the win. Next time Donnington Park with the 450’s at wsb . It should be good…

I would like to thank all my sponsors for this year  PP Construction, Nitro Helmets, Bridgestone. A big thank you also to: Ian and Myra Newton, Dave and Berandette Stewart and all at Thundersport without them this all wouldn’t be possible……….But mainly a big thank you to my Dad.

2010 Motor 450 and GP2

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

I have really enjoyed this season and had some great battles in both classes. After a difficult weekend at snetterton due to bad weather my season then got better and better.  With a lap record at Cadwell and Oulton Park and 9 wins in Motor 450 and a couple of wins in Gp2. It still was only enough to be runner up in the 450 and 3rd in GP2, but i won the supermono 450 head to head championship though. All in all not a bad season .Turning 16 at the end of the year i had the hard choice of staying with the 450 or moving on to a 600. In the end the 450 won.

Pembrey 2nd round

Mallory 2010

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Saturday was not the start of the season i was looking for being knocked off in both races for the 450’s. At least i had better luck in the GP2 races.

Sunday my 1st win on the 450 and a 3rd a much better day. Finishing 3rd in the GP2 class all in all a good weekend.
