Meet my Kawasaki ZX-10R, the bike I’ll be racing this year in the Superstock
1000 class at ThundersportGB.
Today is practice ahead of the first round. It’s chilly but sunny and it’s
great to be here. The aim for the whole weekend is to learn the bike and
settle myself in. I’ll post updates regularly. 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.
