What a weekend. I won the last race by 9.5 seconds to complete a clean sweep. That’s four wins, pole, and another new lap record of 1m14.3s. It’s such a buzz and I’m really happy.
The Streetfighter B championship went right to the wire. Craig Morley and Barry Utting were tied on points at the start of the race so whoever finished ahead would be champion. Craig crossed the line 0.1s ahead for a well-deserved title, especially as he missed the first two rounds.
Behind me, Andy Denyer completed an amazing season of 31 uniterrupted podiums and Keith Smith took third place and third overall.
I’m second overall, but with 17 wins, 6 poles and 6 lap records I’m more than satisfied.
Thanks to all the people that came to support me this weekend, and everyone reading these blogs. It’s really appreciated. Finally, one more big thanks to S&B Automotive Academy, White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors, and Aprilia. It’s been epic.
The 2008 season was my novice year, and I entered Thundersport’s top class, GP1, on a GSX-R1000 K4. Racing on a shoestring, with no back-up at all and riding the oldest bike on the grid, I scored strong results against fierce competition. These performances earned recognition and praise from commentators, organisers, and rivals alike, culminating in the club’s Rookie Of The Year award.
