Fastest ever 2-wheel lap of Brands Hatch in the season finale of British Superbikes 2016
October 17th, 2016
Conditions were difficult but it was good to get the fastest ever lap of Brands in Q2 on Saturday, I got a great tow and couldn't believe the time when it flashed up on the dash. It was a tough weekend we had a lot of rain in Q3 and on Sunday morning. I had a crash on lap 2 of the first race on Saturday and that put me on the back of the grid for race 2 on Sunday and it was wet. I got through the pack and ended up in 14th and my lap time was good enough for 14th on the grid for race 3. I got a good start and was with the lead group when Rispoli's engine blew and the red flag came out. After long delays we had a 10 lap sprint for the final race of the season and I was on the back of the lead group again but just ran out of laps to move up. We made some changes to the bike to try to help get it off the turns better. Huge thanks to ePayMe Yamaha and THM Motorsport and congratulations on your first podium.
