It stayed dry for race one. Nigel rode brilliantly to finish third in class B. I got a good start but didn’t have great pace and also finished third in my class. Chris Matthews won with Andrew Plaskitt second.
Although it’s dry, it’s very cold so we’re all wearing as many layers as possible and sheltering from the wind.
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.
