Second – by 0.18s! The pace is scorching here with the top three all in mid 1m36s. Chris Matthews pipped me in the last few seconds of the session to take pole. Andrew Plaskitt is third, just another 0.2s behind me. It’s going to be a close and exciting race.
Both of them live very close by so they’re Cadwell experts. Hopefully I can learn a few things to go quicker again.
My bike and tyres feel fantastic, so I think there’s more to come. With the BST wheels fitted since our last visit there’s a big boost in every aspect of performance. In between the stress of trying to go as fast as possible, I’m having loads of fun riding it.
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.
