I came into Brands confident and was excited to be back at Brands! After a good start at Brands I was buzzing for the race and raring to go. I qualified 7th EVO and the times were so close 0.5 of a second between 1st to 7th!
I got a shocking start but made my way through at turn 1 up to 5th behind Freddy Pett, I got into a good battle with Freddy, Levi Day and Niall Campbell, we were all swapping place the whole race with some hard overtakes! I was good fun and I finished with a great laptime of 1.29.7 which put me 4th on the grid 15th overall for the feature race tomorrow! I finished 5th.
I got a better start this time and ended up in another battle with Levi and we started to catch Jamie Perrin and then I had a 3 way battle and some awesome racing! We all put in some good overtakes as we were fighting for 4th, Bjorn went down and we then were battling for 3rd, I got about 1 second ahead of Levi and Jamie and the next lap I noticed that Levi had gone down with Jamie and I could see Marshall Neill ahead and I was closing, so I pushed on and made a pass on Marshall at Druids on the last lap and finished 2nd my best result of 2015! I was so happy with the result and the weekend. Also the trophy and champagne were a bonus!
Levi's crash was worst than I thought and I wish him all the best on his recovery and hope to be battling with him again soon!
