Front row in qualifying at Brno
July 21st, 2012
Just finishing qualifying in Brno, we had a few delays today and had to wait for the Superbike Superpole to finish. We finally got underway, we had provisional pole yesterday but we lost that today, we concentrated on the race tyre and at the end we started to get a bit of rain so we waited, I was going to have 2 goes, I went out on the first tyre and we went quickest, quicker than yesterday, then I came in and got another tyre, the same tyre, and it just had really bad chatter and unfortunately I couldn’t even finish the lap it was so bad. I’m a bit upset because I wanted to get pole and I felt we had the pace. Anyway we’re feeling good for the race, the bike feels quite good, they made some improvements since the last race so I’m looking forward to tomorrow and want to try and get on the podium.

4th place finish in cooler conditions at Motorland Aragon
July 1st, 2012
Just finished the race in Aragon we ended up 4th. Quite a difficult race, the start wasn’t the best, we had a restart and ended up 6th off the start, we got up to 3rd at one stage but during the race I was just trying stay on the front guys and struggled to be there, they had quite a lot of power down the back straight, we were losing quite a bit off the turns and I was playing catch up all the time. I felt like I was pushing quite hard in the corners, I had a couple of front end moments I’d regroup and catch again but at the end of the race we weren’t there for the podium. Its unfortunate because its the middle of the year and we want to be battling for the wins. Anyway we got a test here tomorrow, hopefully we can come out with some new ideas and take that to Brno, it’s a horsepower track up the hills so hopefully we can put the power to the ground.

Broc qualifies the Ten Kate Honda in 6th in high temperatures at Motorland Aragon
June 30th, 2012
It’s been a very hot couple of days here in Aragon. We started the weekend really good and we still got the best time of the weekend yesterday in Friday morning Practice, but we crashed yesterday afternoon and with the temperatures being so high it’s been quite difficult to improve on that time. We struggled a little bit just now in qualifying, we tried some stuff to try and make the bike better in the hot conditions. We tried a couple of tyres at the end, one that was harder and then a softer one at the end and we ended up hitting traffic both times. The times at the front are very close and we ended up sixth. Not really where we should have been, front row is always a goal. Race pace is still OK, but we need more punch off the corners, race tyre is going to be a bit of a gamble, one of the tyre’s is not that quick and the other may not go the distance and that seems to be the best of the two. We’ll make a decision tonight and talk to the boys and the get on with it tomorrow. Click here to see the full video.
