Donnington Park 19th-22nd June Thundersport and Moto GP

Monday, June 30th, 2008

We had 2 qualifying sessions .In the 1st dry session i qualified 10 of 41 riders , the second wet session i was quickest.

RACE 1 SATURDAY: 10th on the grid and the race was damp but not raining. My start was good and i managed to work my way into 2ndplace. I put in some quick laps but couldn’t catch 1st place so finished second. My best finish at Thundersport.

RACE 2 SUNDAY: This time conditions were dry i had a great battle  all race withthe riders around me and finished 7th.

I really enjoyed the whole weekend, i watched some of the main events especially on Friday. I didn’t go autograph hunting but Bradley Smith handed me my trophy on the Saturday. I like to thank all at Thundersport, Ian Newton, Nitro and Aprilia for a great weekend . Next Snetterton………………

Brands Hatch a track i was really looking forward to riding.

I qualified 19 but it was very close between me and the next 6 or 7 riders.

 RACE 1: Didn’t have a great start and even lost some places into the 1st corner finished 18th.

RACE 2: A better start managed to make up a few places in the race finished 14th.

SUNDAY

RACE 1: Had a good start made up a few places but once i got up to 14th a had a good battle changing positions lap by lap . Finished 13th.

RACE 2: After a big wash out of about 5 riders in the 1st lap the race was red flagged . The race was restarted i got a good start but once i got to 6th place i couldn’t make the gap up to 5th . I finished 6th.

My first time at Brands Hatch and i really enjoyed it. I felt much better in myself than Cadwell eventhough my cold was still hanging over me. Brands hatch really suited my smooth riding style it was great to be at a track i had only played on playstation before.

Next race Donnington Park the support race with moto gp……another track i haven’t been to so its back to the playstation.
