Race Report - BSB Round 5 - Donington 2-4th Oct

Race Report - BSB Round 5 - Donington Park 2-4th October 2020

So we arrived on Thursday ready for uncertain conditions at Donington Park .. Friday didn't go to plan at all, it was dry but very cold conditions & unfortunately I had a fall in FP1 at Craners, one of the biggest crashes I have had to date, the bike was beaten up & my Dad and JR did a mega job of getting the bike back out for FP2

FP1 - 1:38.066 (+2.508) 17th 😞

FP2 was in wet conditions ... I was finding my feet again from the crash in the morning finishing P10 and also found some problems that were consequently fixed. FP2 - 1:50.770 (+2.086) 10th Saturday, the weather was pretty grim...... Storm Alex was out to play, so qualifying was cancelled & we didn't ride at all so our FP1 time was used for the grid positioning, this wasn't good news for me because I was of course 17th in FP1 after the crash Row 6 on grid so had a lot of work ahead of me in the race So Sunday we had some very difficult choices with the tyres as the weather was still unpredictable.. last minute we decided to run full wets for the race, I worked up to 2nd from 17th, but then my tyres were gone and had very minimal grip, so the other riders on drys caught up to me and I finished P8, which all in all was a good recovery from the start of the weekend. Race - 8th (+11.724) FL: 1:40.413 on Lap 8 Leaving this round with only 1 to go, I am 9th in the Championship, my team mate Dan is in 8th by 1 point & the next 3 are very close in points ,so all still to play for at Brands Next we are back at Donington this weekend for the No Limits final round Thank you so much to all the team JR Performance, Dad & Ben for getting the bike fixed for FP2 Mum for all the help, top notch food & support All my family, friends & supporters Terri for the lush cupcakes My sponsors Warrington MotCentre Cadre Components Bikes and Blades Notso-Fast Rider Coaching Altius Healthcare RageDesigns James Lewis Concept Furniture International Ltd Thermal Technology Race Kippax Moto Jay Collins Janet & Paul Collins Janet Collins Peter kirk Snap-on tools South Warrington Lloyds Estate Agents & Lloyds Property Rentals Warrington Andy Heaton Driving Instructor Brownlowes Autobodies KH Commercials Bespoke Commercial Cleaning Services Bathrooms by LV Steve & Christine Clark MD Hotel Interiors Warrington Barry & Fran MSS Performance Bennetts British Superbike Championship Johnny Blackshaw DLR Transport SHARK Helmets Formaboots RST Media - FireStallion Photography 📸 Bonnie Lane OMG Racing UK Kawasaki #bsbstock600 #kawasaki #jrperformanceracing #oultonpark #joetalbot19racing
