What a great weekend bike ran perfectly although still missing top gear sometimes and a little more preload on the front to cope with the bumps in turn 1 which were pretty unsettling at first, van worked out better lot less of a hassle loading and unloading.
I was hoping we were using the old track as mentioned earlier but the new longer track was the one we used which for me was fine as I was very familiar with it, so while quite a few people were complaining I was just smiling.
My mission was to see how much I had improved since I was hear last and I was pumped to do well, I had never raced this series before but it was well run and you got plenty of track time (2 quali and 6 races), the extra track time was my eventual undoing as I was so tired and sore on the sunday arvo I didn't do the last race.
I qualified with a 2.26 which gave me grid 17 out of 20, but managed to get that down 2.22 in race 1 and 2.21 in race 2 which was the quickest I managed. On the sunday I couldn't even get below 2.26 and it seemed the harder I tried the slower I was getting.
I really wanted to get down to to 2.20 but it was not to be but was wrapped with my 2.21. This equates taking off the 35 scs the new section added to roughly a 1.46 a huge improvement on my original 1.58 from last April.
I've got some gopro footage of my 2.22 lap, stupid thing didn't work on the 2.21 and also a good dice with a ducati monster that I will put up on wednsday.
