Ta-da. I won race two. My start wasn’t ideal again and I was third for the first couple of laps, but once past Keith Smith I reeled in Denyer and overtook into the hairpin a lap later.
There were a couple of close calls with backmarkers, especially Mark Lumb who changed line on his Ducati 900 mid-corner and we collided. Luckily we both stayed on.
The bike is going great, so all it needs is a new rear Dunlop D211GP.
Thanks to everyone who has been texting me with support, and to Danny and Locci who came along today. Also massive congratulations to my friend Sam Cox for a stunning first outing on his new CB500.
All the best.
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.
