I rode the loaned Honda Firestorm again today, and used the warm-up session to work on the suspension. By adding loads of preload the ground clearance improved loads and I felt like I could really ride it. By the end of the day I was two seconds faster than the first time I rode it.
That put me right in the mix and I had good scraps in each race, netting sixth and fifth in the class. I’m pleased with that as I rode my heart out and scored a total of 29 points, which is useful damage limitation as I turn my attention to staying top three overall.
I’ll write more soon. For now, thanks to the many people that helped this weekend, most especially Rob Garland for his bike.
