Second on the grid is ok. It puts me on the front row with a clear run at the first corner.
Carl Marsden is on pole, a few tenths ahead. My plan is to give him a race from the start and not let him get a gap. Hopefully I’ll find a little more pace too. I didn’t get as much as I hoped from the new tyres this morning.
Andrew Plaskitt and Lee Hardy are third and fourth on their Tuonos. There’s even a Harley-Davidson out here, Warren Scott on fifth, one of the racers from the BSB support series getting some practice in. He’s going well, but rather him than me on that thing.
Wish me luck.
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.
