After a wet warm-up session this morning, which felt terrible but saw me
fifth on the timesheets, the sun came out and I finished today’s dry first
race fifth in the Superstock class and tenth overall in GP1. Importantly, I
went faster and stayed near my best pace more consistently. That shows that
I’m learning the bike and the set-up changes have taken it the right way.
The racing is hard and a real challenge. Getting on the podium is my aim for
the year and it will really give me something to work for.

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.
