I got the win from Chris Matthews after Carl Marsden crashed on the warm-up lap. That took the pressure off a bit so I could focus on staying ahead of Matthews without pushing too hard on a rear tyre that was way past its best.
It looks like this season will be spectacular.

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.
