Practice went well on the WeTrackBikes.com CBR1000cc Honda – I wanted to lap at 123mph but was well over the moon when I did 124.1mph and still getting to grips with the blade I was doing well. I did 188mph through the speed trap so was happy with the set up for the race, I qualified 28th and managed to finish 19th with a lap time of 124.6mph and was only half a second off 125mph lap. Sadly Lee Vernon lost his life, it put a dampener on the meeting for me, as he was a great person and friend.
The Club #98 R6 Yamaha was also flying and I hit the speed trap at 172mph from a screaming 600cc. I managed 17th in that race but red flags went out on the last lap so everything went back a lap and I was demoted to 18th, still a good result and a PB on the 600cc as well, unfortunately the clutch went in the 2nd race.
A big thanks to everyone who came and said Hi and supported me in Ireland, and a big thanks to Neil and Nick for coming with me for the week and helping out.
