Thuderbike sport race.

Round 3 Silverstone International Circuit May 2015.

Well this weekend was my annual visit to Silverstone for some hooning around on the bike in the thunderbikes and minitwin classes. As it has been 6 weeks since I was knocked unconscious at brands hatch I thought I would start saturday with a crash. Fortunately I just broke a brake lever, brake lever protector and a foot peg. This all came as I started the first race in 10th on the grid, 8th in class which I think is my second best start position and I really thought was a great opportunity.

I got the repairs sorted in time for the 12 lap minitwin race. 12 Laps turned into 8 as the race was finally red flagged but I felt good and the bike with its new forks felt fantastic. I competed in fours Thuderbike (TB) races and two Minitwin (MT) races. After the off I started the second TB race in 39th and battled my way up to 25th, 16th in class. In my second race I made it up to 24th, 15th in class and my first TB point. Third race I finished in 20th, 12th in class and 4 more points. I started my first MT race in 30th out of 37 competitors, finishing in 31st. The second MT race I finished in 24th. My best time all weekend was a 1:20.882 slower than last year. All in all I enjoyed this weekend and feel like I am finding my feet again on the SV. Onwards and Upwards.
