Erm, I won. By 15 seconds.
My start was ok and I was third on the first lap, second by the end of it and in the lead on the third lap. After that I got my head down and pushed for a couple of laps, scoring a new record of 1m14.2s on the way. Once I had a gap I kept it smooth but found I could still run in 14s comfortably. It was a mega win and I was pleased to have the chance in the TV interview to thank Aprilia, S&B Automotive Academy, and White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors.
Really looking forward to the last race of the year. There’s only one aim, of course. 🙂
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.
