Reflection on Snetterton BSB standing in at EPayMe Yamaha THM Motorsports
July 12th, 2016
It was a disappointing way to end the weekend really as it had been great working with all the ePayMe Yamaha guys at Snetterton. I was feeling really good on the bike from the start of the weekend and I think we would have had a good opportunity to end the weekend with some strong results. I didn’t have to change hardly anything on the bike during the weekend and despite not getting too much dry practice laps in the bag, we were able to be in that top nine for Superpole ending and seventh on the grid which was a good feeling. Unfortunately I got punted off on the first lap as there was quite a lot of action at turn two! It pushed me onto the grass and the bike landed on top of me; it was a stupid little crash but it left me feeling a bit beaten up so that is why we didn’t start race two. I really enjoyed working with the team though and would like to have another crack at it, so I need to thank them for all their hard work over the weekend. Now I fly back to Japan to test with YART for the Suzuka 8 hour which is at the end of the month.
