I needed binoculars to see the lights from the 11th row and there were so many slower bikes in front of me that I had to keep rolling off to dodge them on the way to the first corner at the start. It was soaking wet too.
Somehow I made up 22 places to be 10th overall and sixth in class. That’s useful damage limitation as Matthews only regained 6pts on me.
My team-mate, Nigel Davis, was 14th overall and 5th in class after a brilliant ride. I had to work very hard to catch and pass him. It was a really impressive ride for a rookie at Cadwell for the first time.
The weather is crazy. In the time I’ve been typing this it went from sunny to a hailstorm and back to dry. Hopefully it will stabilise for later.

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.
