The new season begins this weekend at Mallory Park and the excitement is
building. I have a new bike in a new class with new rivals. About the only
thing I do know is that it will be tough. With only half a day of testing on
a wet track so far with my Kawasaki ZX-10R, I’ve barely started the learning
curve. Be patient with me while I figure out how to be a Superstock 1000
rider and then, hopefully, I’ll be towards the front after a couple of
Mallory Park has been resurfaced over winter, so I’m looking forward to
going there much more than usual. After a seemingly very long winter, it’s
great to be excited about racing again.
Over the next few days I’ll post pictures of the bike in its full livery,
plus my new White Dalton helmet and van graphics. Even if I’m not fast, at
least I’ll look good.
A massive thanks once again to White Dalton Motorcycle Solicitors, S&B
Automotive Academy and RSRmotosport for the fantastic support they’re giving
me this season.
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.
