Streetfighters and GP1 races

Streetfighters and GP1 races

23 Oct 2011

I won the Streetfighters race comfortably and then fitted a new soft tyre for GP1 which got me 12th and this lap time. That’s half a second off my Streetfighter best and a frankly ridiculous time on one of these bikes. The GSX-R felt so good to ride and I’ve never had so much fun […]

Mallory - last race

Mallory – last race

I won the last Streetfighter race by 20 seconds, enjoying riding hard for the hell of it. Between us we took the decision not to go out for the last GP1 race. My rear tyre is finished so I’d be off the pace and at risk of getting lapped by the leaders who will be […]

I got pole in Streetfighters by a second, which was nice, and qualified 13th in GP1 despite going nearly a second quicker again. This looks like being a real rollercoaster weekend. The sun is out and I’m simply happy to be here.

Back to winning ways! I got away and won by 7s. It feels great to win again and it’s a reminder of just how tough GP1 really is. Two more races this afternoon, GP1 first.

Riding in the beautiful weather today was joy incarnate. The bike is working brilliantly and is loads of fun. In the long GP1 race I was 12th overall and 6th Superstock (kind of). Three of us were covered by less than a second, though I was third of the trio. It was great to fight […]

As previews go, this one is rather late. I wholeheartedly apologise. By the time anyone reads it I’ll probably have finished qualifying. But then, until a couple of hours ago I wasn’t sure exactly what sort of weekend I needed to preview. The first big shuffle came last weekend when my ZX-10R was sold. It […]

Oulton race two

08 Oct 2011

I was 5th in class and 9th overall and I’m really happy. Conditions were drying all afternoon and it was a tough choice between wet or dry tyres. I went with wets, along with the majority of the grid, but nearly all the track was dry. Luckily, the few wet patches evened things out. I […]

Oulton race one

What a race! I was 6th superstock and 12th overall from 21st on the grid, and I beat Chris Barnes too! I made lots of changes to the set-up before morning warm-up and the bike was loads better, with the stability needed to use all the power. In the race I got a decent start […]

07 Oct 2011

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 […]

It’s 10.36pm. I’m in the back of my van in Oulton’s paddock, tucked up in ‘bed’ (two sleeping bags and an airbed with a slow puncture). The thin metal roof stops the rain from actually landing on my face but otherwise repeats the weather conditions with me verbatim. The temperature outside is identical to in […]

Despite the bad luck of breaking down at Pembrey, missing all the races there and having to ride the streetfighter at Brands, I’m still fifth in the points standings but by just two points. That’s worth fighting for so I’ll be going all out at the last two rounds to keep that place. Results, photos […]

Brands race 3

Brands race 3

18 Sep 2011

I was 9th, with a destroyed rear tyre costing me the drive I needed to get onto the two bikes that were just ahead. It was another really fun race though. In case you’re wondering, had I been in the Streetfighter class I’d have won every race comfortably. Even so, I’m really pleased that I […]

Brands race 2

Brands race 2

7th! I’m really pleased with that against the big bikes, and I dipped into 49s too. I got a great start from the second row and slotted into 5th before a big bike powered past me. I held 6th until a few laps from the end when Rob Elsemere powered past on his GSX-R1000 – […]

It was hard work but a lot of fun racing the streetfighter against the 1000s. I knew I’d slip back a bit from my grid position in the dry but I got a good start and pushed hard. I finished 10th, which I’m pleased with, having been passed in a straight line by two 1000s […]

Brands Hatch qualifying

A huge downpour an hour before qualifying really shook things up and, seemingly, played into my hands. On the 750 Streetfighter I qualified 7th on the GP1 grid, which is fantastic. The conditions minimised the power disadvantage so I felt my way around, kept building the pace and stayed smooth. My best lap of 55.6s […]

This weekend is going to be even more exciting and interesting for one surprise reason – I’m going to be riding the Suzuki GSX-R750 Streetfighter again, but in the GP1 class. As fun an idea as it is, there was no choice in it. The ZX-10R isn’t ready after the engine problem encountered at Pembrey […]

Pembrey

26 Aug 2011

Good news and bad news. Bad news first. My bike dropped a valve during practice and my weekend was over before it had begun. I’d hoped that the poor running was an electrical fault but when I found pieces of metal – valve collet, it turned out – in the airbox, I knew I wasn’t […]

Finally, there are some photos from Snetterton in my web gallery, thanks to Team Principle (this week’s excessively grandiose title) Rob Wright, aka RSRmotosport, aka RJW Consultancy. The images show the wide range of weather we faced, including the river running through the paddock. The next round is at Pembrey in Wales on the bank […]
