Taking positives from mixed weekend at Cadwell Park

August 25, 2015

I endured a mixed weekend at the eighth round of the Motorpoint British Supersport Championship after crashing out in the Feature race on Sunday at Cadwell Park.

I had finished a battling sixth in Saturday’s Sprint race and was feeling confident of challenging for the rostrum in Sunday’s race when disaster struck.

It wasn’t a bad weekend but it wasn’t a great one either. I felt really strong in Sunday’s race but it was just one of those things with the crash.

You can go over the Mountain at Cadwell 100 times and be fine and then you can be off line by a few millimetres and end up on the floor. It was unlucky really but I’d been on the pace. I put a big hole in my elbow and I’ve to get skin graft on that and I’ve twisted my shoulder a bit, but nothing too major.

We found something in the warm-up on the bike and made a small electrical change and it was mint really. I didn’t get the best start but I was still in the front group and I knew it was a long race, so I settled into fifth or sixth and sat behind [Luke] Stapleford because I knew he wouldn’t be hanging around. My plan was to sit with him and see where he would go and my thought process turned out right because after I came off, Stapleford started pulling them in and before long he was into the lead. If I hadn’t crashed, my plan would have worked but that’s how it goes.

The Sprint race was a two-part race and in the first part I came through from seventh or eighth and made my way up into third and was quite comfortable. James [Rispoli], my team-mate, made a bit of a tight manoeuvre and I lost a few places and it put me behind Glenn [Irwin].

The race got red-flagged after that and there was a restart. I got going again and was up into third but then James did another close move and I ended up on the grass. After that I was off the back of Glenn and I pulled him in on the final lap but I ended up sixth. We’ll regroup and there are positives to take heading into Oulton Park.

    I’m amazed, I hae to admit. Rarely do I come aross a blog that’s both
    educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for
    something relating to this.
