I can barely bring myself to write this – I ran out of fuel halfway round the last lap, 20 seconds from the flag while leading my class by ten seconds and third on track including the Supertwins. I pushed the bike most of the way, but that’s against the rules so I was forced to stop.
After some early scraps it was a good ride and should have been a strong class win. Instead, I’m gutted and can only apologise to everyone that supports me. Congratulations to Andy Denyer on his first Streetfighter win, and to Chris Matthews who pushed him hard.
The one consolation is a best lap of 1m01.8s. I’ll be looking for plenty more of those in the second race as I try to make up for this waste. Keeps the points battle interesting though, eh?
