BSB Round 5 - Donington Race Report

BSB Round 5 - Donington Park - National Junior Superstock Championship Race Report

This weekend at Donington, all started off ok with P5 in FP1, struggled a little with the bike, then in FP2 we struggled massively and unfortunately went the wrong route with the bike set up and came in 8th.

Not feeling too good, I tried to turn it around and made big changes with the bike which went in the right direction in qualifying getting P5 on Saturday, so we met our aim of the front 2 rows however was 0.4 off pace, so still had work to do.

The morning warm up was good, the bike felt good & so did I.

In the race had a good start, except I got boxed in the first corner, so made my way up to 3rd but then got passed and held up allowing gaps to appear, I was struggling with the front end of my bike chattering, but a few riders fell off in front of me, by then the gap was too big to first place, so I just tried to crack on with the minor problems I felt and managed to come home in P2, I’m really happy to be on the podium again & looking forward to Cadwell Park this weekend for Round 6, feeling strong.

Big shout out to JR Performance for a top job all weekend.

It was really good to see some of my main sponsors at the meeting this weekend too.

Thanks again to Gary & Terri for the factory chair.

Huge thanks also to Gary - Notso-Fast Rider Coaching for turning up to help whilst he was back in the UK for a spell & good to have Beno back in my team as I missed him at Thruxton.

And as always a massive thanks to all my sponsors, family, friends, everyone who came to see me over the weekend and sent messages, really means a lot to have your support.
