Portimao race starts in tricky conditions and ends in 4th position
September 23rd, 2012
It was tricky at the start because of the rain in the morning and some huge thunderstorms, no one expected that before the race. I was lucky I was on pole so I got off the line good and lead the first couple of laps, there was a couple of wet patches but we just made our way around them. There was something going on with the bike at the start of the race, something electronic with the traction control or something, it sort of mucked up my rhythym a little bit and then we had a really good battle all race with the top guys, going at each other all the time, missing breaking points and running a bit wide. It was an enjoyable race but unfortunately I missed the podium and ended up 4th. It was a much better 4th than the last race because I was there in the fight. To be honest we were lacking a bit of power in the straight, this season its been difficult and today it was quite obvious because its quite a big straight. There's only one more race to go this year at a little bit less of a horsepower track, its a good track for me, hopefully we can try and get that win. Click here to watch the full video.

Pole position in an intense session at Portimao
September 22nd, 2012
It was a pretty intense session really the track here is such a physical and hard track and the temperatures have been quite high. We went out at the start of the session, my speed was quite good but not really what I expected. We made a couple of changes during the session, trying a few things on the rear shock and front suspension in a direction that we knew and the bike started to handle a lot better and felt really consistent. I'm really happy for the guys they haven't had one for a while we've missed out a few times, its been really close but this one we're on the right end of the stick. Its nice for me, its the last 2 races, its that time of year where I need to be there for next year. Click here to watch the full video.

4th in Q1 at Portimao 21 Sept 12
September 22nd, 2012
It’s been pretty good to day and we’re pretty happy. We concentrated a bit on tyres and distance today to see what happened. The tyres are pretty much the same as the last few races so nothing different really. I’m pretty comfortable on the bike and we changed it quite a bit, just to try some different things. We ended up with a pretty good package and there’s some more things to try tomorrow.
