Race report from an epic Donington !
Donington Park ….what can I say !!!
From starting the week feeling as sick as a dog I really didn’t expect this outcome.
Friday we had 2 FP sessions and we were somewhat there, but had a lot of work to do with the bike and setup. FP1 P8 with a FL of 1:32.030 FP2 P7 - FL 1:30.528
Saturday we qualified 4th in the dry with my fastest lap of the weekend - 1:29.752 so we felt good and were happy with how patient I was in that session putting the fastest lap in at the end. Race 1 later that day was unreal, I was in 2nd place on the first half of the race ,but then the red flag came out due to rain, the second half of the race was wet and I put the hammer down and came over the line in P1 for my first race win in Stock 1000 with a 1:39.663, this feeling was unbelievable!!!
Then on Sunday, we had a warm up first, where I came in 2nd - 1:41.279, the weather once again didn’t make it’s mind up until just before we were going out, it was really heavy rain and one of the wettest races I have ever been in. From lap 1 to lap 15 I lead the race to come over the line with a big gap to take my second race win of the weekend and the fastest lap of the race - 1:39.842.
Over the moon to do the double at Donington, thank you to everyone for all the support messages and Congratulations on the wins, everyone who came out to support me, the team and to my sponsors who have backed me from day 1 Shows why we should never give up Thank You !
