There are 35 bikes in GP1 this weekend as riders from other series and the
British championship squeeze in some extra racing before the end of the
season. It makes a hard class even tougher.
The session was wet, with more heavy rain falling part way through. It was
also littered with crashes. I pushed fairly hard but didn’t take any risks,
so I’m 11th in superstock and 21st overall.
The stability that I said yesterday is so important at Oulton Park is sorely
missing and I just can’t open the throttle enough in several key places. I
have a couple of ideas of what I can try in morning warm-up to improve it.
Well done to my friend Sam Cox, who is flying on his Aprilia RRV450 and
qualified third in his class. Sam is one to watch. Not only is he talented,
he’s a really likeable kid with a great attitude, a sponsor’s dream.
