Oulton Park 5th April Thundersport GB 2nd round

Monday, April 7th, 2008

Qualifying was wet and i ended up 15th on the grid of 41 riders.

1st RACE: My start was better but not good. After 2 laps the race was red flagged due to a couple of crashes. We restarted back on the grid i was now 17th. I managed a much better start and had a good rhythm and was able to make up a handful of places finishing 9th of 41 riders and 5th in the Nitro newcomers.

2nd RACE: As we sat on the line it started hailing. My start was much better and i managed to make a couple of places. By the end of the race i was battling in a group of about 4 riders, we were changing position at nearly every corner. At the end of the last lap i was at the front of the group and managed to hold on to 8th place over the line, and 3rd in the Nitro newcomers.

I really enjoyed my 1st race at Oulton Park. I still need to improve my starts,but i am getting a better understanding and feel for my bike. It was a good weekend and my 1st podium at Thundersport. My next race at Mallory Park 20th April with EMRA.
