FP 1 and 2: Took session one pretty easy learning the track, the track was
different from most in Spain been tight and twisty almost like a British track.
We changed the gearing for session 2 and the bike felt good. I was happy with
the the bike and ready for Qualifying tomorrow.
Qualifying 1 and 2: In Quali 1 I was struggling to find grip but I managed to
set a time of 1:34.9 which wasn’t great. I was 23rd on the grid at this point. Quali 2 I did 2 laps then
lost the front into the fast left hander and that was it I was 23rd on the grid for tomorrow, I was pretty annoyed with
myself because I know I could have qualified a lot better.
Race: I got a good start although I done a pretty big wheelie. I got up to
12th overall by lap 3 and was moving up the
field having some good battles and changing positions a lot with other riders
its was a hard battle but by lap 9 my front tyre had no grip and came into a
tight right corner before the back straight and lost the front. I was not happy
because I was 10th overall my best position yet
and the front tyre let me down. Through out the race I must have saved the front
end about 3 times I knew it was a matter of time before the front went. Luckily
I was fine and the bike wasn’t to bad just a handlebar and fairings.
Overall: Not the best weekend but I proved I can run in the top 10. Just need
some luck and a race to come together.
