Disappointing races at Oulton Park British Superbikes with a crash and bike problems
May 4th, 2015
Well Oulton Park's been a massive disaster for me this weekend. Its quite a difficult track to learn, we got some bad weather so we didn't get a lot of dry time. We went straight into the qualifying with not really a set up and I did my best but it wasn't good enough and we ended up 16th on the grid. On Saturday I had a big crash in the wet and hurt my shoulder and right arm quite badly. In the first race we made a good start and passed a few guys in the first lap but unfortunately I got T-boned into Hizzy's, I went up in the air and landed quite hard on my back and was beaten up again. The bike was quite badly damaged and the boys did the best job to fix it for the race but the brake was not quite right, it was all the way out and I couldn't adjust it in anymore and I'm not sure what was going on with the engine break. I just continued to race to get some more miles on this track because I needed more laps but in the end I didn't have anywhere near the pace that I needed. We've got the summer break now and 2 days test at Snetterton before the next race in 5 weeks, I need to regroup and come back for round 4 and try to get towards the front where I believe I should be.
