Silverstone Round 8 BSB - Race Report

Round 8 at Silverstone was a tough weekend starting off on Friday with a wet FP1, I was inside the top 5 all session, but then came in with 2 mins remaining and it started to dry, finished P11.

In FP2 I finished P5, the fastest times were set in the first 5 laps, I came in to change a few things, then it started to rain a little but the traction was fine, then as I came in to the 2nd to last corner, it was raining harder, touched the throttle and I had a high side at Luffield, it roughed me up a little and I felt like I took a beating, however Saturday in qualifying I managed to get myself on the front row feeling beat up, so I was happy with that but changes were needed for the race.

On Sunday, the race started off well, getting the holeshot from 3rd on the grid but then 2 laps into the race the safety car came out, didn’t feel too bad in the race but Jack got into the lead and as we were battling for 2nd we were letting him get away, got myself into 2nd but unfortunately got passed after the back straight and so came home in P3, it was a hard pill to swallow because I knew I could have gone faster, was getting held up and battling around too much but taking the positive, coming away with a podium on a track I knew I was going to struggle at and after my crash in FP, I am relatively happy. Well Done to Jack Nixon Racing & AsherDurham64

Now looking forward to the next round at Oulton Park where I feel good and the plan is to grab some championship points back.

Thank you to the team, all my sponsors, Rob at 151’s, everyone who came out to support & sent messages over the weekend, you are all very much appreciated.
