4th on the grid at Brands Hatch BSB highest placed qualifying of the year for ePayMe THM Yamaha
August 7th, 2016
I tipped off the bike this morning and I was a little bit nervous heading into qualifying because I didn't feel so good on the front, We tried something different for Q2 and straightaway it felt good and was a big change. Straightaway I felt more comfortable and the 1m 25.5s started coming. Then in Superpole you always want to go full noise but you have to hold back a little bit. In the end we did a good lap and it was the best qualifying I've had in a long time. Our race pace is pretty good and I think we can fight in the races. I think in Snetterton we also had good race pace and it was unfortunate I got taken out so early in race one, I broke a rib and couldn't race that weekend unfortunately and I was upset because I felt we had the pace to battle at the front.
