Reflections on most successful weekend ever for THM EPayMe Yamaha team at Brands Hatch
August 10th, 2016
I felt like the weekend went well and we have to look at the big picture. This was the first time I had actually raced, because at Snetterton I was involved in the crash at turn two. To get into Superpole again and qualify fourth was better than I had initially expected but a great result for me and the team. We changed something after warm up and in the race I was really in the mix with the guys and was running in the top five until the very end of the race when I got done and ended up sixth, but it’s so close in this championship. In race two we made another change between races and then for the first time in the weekend I kept feeling like I was going to lose the front and a few times I did rescue it. I was in a big battle with Dan Linfoot and Christian Iddon at the end and they have both been on the podium this year, so it just shows how tough these races can be, but I am happy with the progress we are making. We had some good input from what I experienced with the Yamaha at the Eight Hour which the team are working with and hopefully we can take another step forward.
