Nice and dry, unlike the forecast, a little cold but thats good for engine power. Went out for warm up, something didn't feel right, turned out we had a front puncture! Quallifying with new front tyre on but still not right, pulled in and couldnt beleive it, another flat. This time it was checked and found to be faulty valves that were the cause. Qualified in 8th place after all that, so not too bad under circumstances!
Made some changes to the bike, a bit of a gamble as it was the first time out without flat tyre! Off to good start but got blocked in at the first bend, came out in 9th, got held up for 1-2 laps then made a pass stick and had a big gap to catch up with front runners. Used this race to get used to changes made and handling settings which gave us an 8th place finish.... could be better but race 2 to go.
Good start again, but so was everyone else! Everyone in British Championship are at the top of their game and they take some keeping up with, that was the senario for this race and we remained in 8th, only this time we stayed right with the leaders until lap 4 when a couple of missed gear changes messed up the run. Managed to catch them back up but with only a 7 lap race we had run out of track time. Shame as we were on the noise! Still, another 8th place, which keeps us 8th in the Championship table.
