I was fired up for Silverstone as I love the track and was hungry for a good result! FP1 and 2 went well good lap times and improving each time out, Qualifying also went well with a best lap time of 2.11.8 which was 1.2 seconds quicker than last year! I was happy and starting 16th overall on the grid. the bike was working perfectly and I was ready for a good sprint race!
I got a strong start and was up to 3rd EVO I got overtaken by a couple of riders but kept my head down and sat on the back of the group battling for 3rd EVO. I got into a fight with Ben Stafford and we both ran wide at turn 16 and I lost the front and went down! I was annoyed but I was pushing and shit happens, unfortunately I didn't get in a great lap time as it was only lap 3 when I went down. I was starting 10th EVO for the feature race tomorrow.
I got another solid start and was up to 6th and with the leading group on lap 3 the safety car came out for 2 laps, Ant West desided he didn't want to stay behind me, Stafford or Allingham under the safety car so he passed us! I thought to myself what are you doing! The safety car came in and I was stuck behind West but I past him and then got passed Stafford and Allingham and was chasing down the group in front. I caught up with Paulo, Pett and Hipwell and we were having a good battle I managed to keep Paulo behind and made a tough pass on Hipwell into turn 1 on the last lap and made it stick to finish 5th EVO with a good lap time of 2.11.3 which I was very happy with. Even though I didn't finish on the podium i was still happy with a solid finish and strong lap time which has put my confidence up for Brands the last round!
