BSB Round 2 - Donington Park - Race Report

So this weekend we were over at Donington Park for round 2 of the BSB Junior Superstock Championship, it was included on the WSBK schedule, so was quite exciting to be in the mix with the big lads.

The weather was changeable all weekend, sunny one minute, thunderstorms the next, making it all very interesting re tyre choices and set up.

Was quite a challenging few days, starting off P2 in FP1 but needed to work on the bike a lot.

FP2, came in P3, so not too bad in the practice sessions to start the weekend off.

Qualifying on Sat morning was very wet, felt OK on the bike though and we made steps forward, but I was a little off the pace in ending in P11, not where I was looking to be at all, however we remained positive and moved on to the first race knowing I had a fair bit to do, was a close race throughout & managed to work my way up to P2, but then got pipped on the last couple of laps as the track started to dry, finishing in 4th place, which was not bad from a start of 11th I guess.

Moving on to Sunday, the 1st race of the day was good, battling up at the front end, I was biding my time, knowing where I was strong, sitting in 4th, getting ready to make a move but the red flag came out and unfortunately put an early end to the race, so I came in P4.

The last race of the weekend was touch and go with the weather, looking like another storm was going to hit, but luck was on our side and we had another dry race starting off pulling the hole shot and battling right up at the front the whole race, bringing it home in P3.

Another weekend of learning lots & how to improve, really chuffed to get a podium and I am ready & feeling more determined than ever for the next round which is at Brands 23-25th July.

Wishing James Alderson 19 a speedy recovery also and Congratulations to James, Zak Corderoy Racing & Jack Nixon Racing on their wins over the weekend.

Thanks to all the team for doing a top job with the sketchy conditions And Rob at 151s, love the new compression top design.

We know what to do for the next one and as always mega thanks to all my sponsors, family, friends, supporters for your messages & continued support.
