BSB Round 1 - Oulton Park - Junior Superstock Race Report


So the 1st round began at my home track over at Oulton Park. The weekend started off on Friday with damp conditions for FP1, then later on in the session we changed to dry tyres and finished P4 which was a very positive start to the weekend, in FP2 we went out on dry tyres, but rain started to fall 3 laps into the session, so that session finished very early for us, ending in P8.

Saturday in qualifying, I managed to get a good time in right at the end of the session, I just got pipped on the last lap by James and came home in P2.

The first race was good, was having a solid race up at the front but then got pushed wide and made a few too many mistakes, so was knocked off the podium to 4th, the gap was only 0.513 to the leader but I sure learnt a lot in that race and was focused for Sunday.

Race 2 came around, started P3 on the grid with another great start, once again running at the sharp end of the field, even managed to lead a few laps, battling as hard as I could and I came home in P3, so a good solid weekend in the bank, leaving the 1st round with my first podium & in 3rd place in the Championship, lots learnt and now raring to go this weekend at Donington. Congratulations to Jack Nixon Racing on taking both wins this weekend.

I did my PB round here also at weekend so happy with that, was also my first time seeing spectators around the track, as in my 1st year of BSB last year, the pandemic had just begun and so did not see any all year, another new experience.

Massive shout out to the JR Performance team for all the help this weekend, they were simply amazing and to all my sponsors for making it possible for me to be competing in the races.

Thanks also to everyone who sent messages over the weekend, watched on tv, came to the track to support me, really appreciate you all.

Joe
