This weekend was the journey down south to Brands Hatch for round 3 of the Junior Superstock 600, we arrived on Thursday, all ready for the Free Practice session on Friday.
The weather report was once again changeable so we had an idea it may be a challenging weekend.
Friday morning was the first FP1, starting the weekend off with a P4 in FP1, not feeling a million miles off the pace, just needed to make some adjustments to the bike.
FP2, was fixing to all go to plan, getting in 7 laps before making a mistake and crashng out, I did not have the best time or feeling with the bike prior to the off in that session.
Qualifying was a very frustrating one, starting off wet, was running up at the front until it began to dry, so we put a dry rear tyre in, however it dried very quickly and could feel the front wet tyre over heating and feeling very soft so only managed to get 10th position on the grid which was not where I wanted to be, knowing I had a lot of work to do in the race, but remaining positive.
Race day on Sunday came around and yet again we had changing track conditions all the time, we went out on dry tyres due to the track being dry with a few wet patches around, I got a good start as I knew I needed to and chipped away, Jack & I knew the red flag was going to come out due to the rain just starting to fall, he made a move on me and I just got the best possible drive coming out the last corner and so managed to cross the line first just in time before it got red flagged, taking my first ever win in the BSB Junior Superstock.
Really chuffed with the result, especially from a start of 10th, leaving Brands in P2 in the championship race.
Would just like to thank my family for all their constant hard effort and the team for the hard work this weekend and of course to my sponsors that are allowing me to be here, I hope I did you proud this weekend !
Also to everyone who came to say hello at the track, sent messages of support & congratulations over social media etc, it really does help and is very much appreciated
