Cadwell Park 18-19th May Thundersport GB

Sunday, May 25th, 2008

SATURDAY and my 1st time at Cadwell Park i qualified 23rd of 41 riders.

1st RACE: My start was much better the race got red flagged a few times and i finished 13th of 33 riders.

2nd RACE: I got a really good start and lead the the race, as i went into a corner a rider under took me hitting my handlebars. I ran off the track onto the grass. I managed to keep the bike up right and rejoined the race putting in my fastest lap of the race to finish 5th of 23 riders.

That was my 1st day at Cadwell. I found it a hard track to learn, but was pleased as my lap times had improved during the day and i knew where i was losing time.

 SUNDAY 

1st RACE: My start was good and my lap times improved finished 14th of 33riders.

2nd RACE: I got a good start and lead the race again for a few laps but couldn’t hold the pace and finished 3rd.

I had a good weekend, my starts have really improved. Normally i have no problem learning new tracks, but i found Cadwell a real challenge. Not feeling 100% i found it hard choosing the right lines for my riding style. I felt i did well and it was great to be on the podium in the last race. Next race Brands Hatch 31st May with Thundersport GB………

                          

Mallory Park 20th April EMRA championship

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

It was the 2nd round of the Emra championship. The 1st round on March 2nd i had entered on my 70cc conti as i didn’t have my Aprilia then. It was a good weekend with 2 wins . This time i was racing in the formula 125 class.

Qualifying was wet ,very similar conditions to the thundersport 1st round at Mallory. I was really pleased as my lap times had improved and i was on pole.

1st RACE: I have been practising my starts a couple of times and my start was much better. I was up battling with the back of the GP 125 field and finished 1st in the formula 125 class.

2nd RACE: My start was not as good and battled 2 or 3 laps for the lead. I managed to pass and to create a gap to win the 2nd formula 125 race.

It was a good weekend and it was nice to be at emra as most of the officials know me. I choose to stay on the Dunlop tyres that i use at Thundersport despite other riders opting to use full wets. I was really pleased my lap times had improved and i felt much happier with my bike. Next race at Cadwell Park with Thundersport……….
