Snetterton BSB Test
May 28th, 2015
It’s the first time this year it has felt like my bike. I just haven’t had any feeling with it for the first three round, a little bit at Brands but not like today, we have made quite a few changes these two days, it has been a good test as we had the new tank which I waited until today to test. My position on the bike is different now, I am quite a bit higher than before. This seemed to change the bike for me, it’s easier to ride and suits my style more. Basically, every track is new to me except the first round. Oulton Park was a disaster, I was really upset with my performance, so the last two or three weeks I have been trying to think of a way to fix myself to suit the bike but I feel today I have found the right direction.

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.

16th on the grid first time at Oulton Park for the 3rd round of British Superbikes 2015
May 3rd, 2015
Unfortunately we didn't make the top ten in qualifying, we didn't have the pace to be there. Its so close this year you can easily look a lot worse than you are and with the wet conditions yesterday and this morning we lost a bit of time on the dry track. Going straight into qualifying I just had to try and make up a bit of time I didnt have with a lack of experience with the track. Starting from 16 on the grid is not where I wanted to be, but we got two races tomorrow so I just have to make up for it in the two races and hopefully come away with some good points.
