BSB Round 10 - Donington Park National Junior Superstock Championship Race Report
So we headed to Donington this weekend for the penultimate round of the 2021 season.
Was an unfortunate weekend, starting Friday with a P4 in a very wet first practice session, in FP2 managed to finish P2 putting 2 solid last laps together in the cold.
Qualifying was wet and cold, the track was slippy with not much grip, came home P7 for the grid position, which wasn’t the best but felt happy to get through the field for the race.
The race began well, it was still a little damp from the wet morning, so in the opening laps I took my time and began to trust the track conditions. However throughout the race I really struggled with the front end of my bike, it held me back as I was not feeling much confidence in the front. I managed just to sit in for the fight for 2nd, unfortunately as I began to set my move up on the last lap I had a big moment costing me a few seconds in the battle for the podium. I tried my utmost best throughout the race with the cards I was dealt, we now have a weekend off, then to Brands Hatch for the final round.
I look to regroup during my time off and head to Brands in my best form, I’m looking forward to it, it isn’t over til the fat lady sings.
Massive thanks to all of my sponsors once again, everyone who came out to the track and for all the messages of support and to big Joe for getting the engine strip done in time, in a professional way.
