Race one was dry and I got off to a reasonable start, but unfortunately I didn't get through lap one. I spun up and got thrown down hard in a really fast section of the track. I got up straight away, but the bike was a mess and the BSB rule is that once you are down you cannot re-join, so I waited until the race was over to go back to the garage.
I was disappointed. I didn't mind the track and the feeling I had with the bike was good. By the time I got back to the garage, my right wrist had blown up and I was sore all over, as you'd expect after getting off at over 200kph.
My new Dainese suit did its job perfectly and I am grateful to be in such a great pair of leathers. Likewise my Arai helmet. Advice I can give to anyone is always buy the best gear you can and Dainese and Arai are right up there at the top of the list for quality and safety.
Race two was a bit of a waste for me as my wrist was like locked solid. It was a shame as my team did an awesome job getting my bike ready for the race.
Since the race weekend I've had my wrist worked on every day, it's not broken which is a good thing, but it is torn up. Unfortunately I was not fit enough to race the first round of the World Endurance Championship this past weekend, which I was teamed up to ride for Monster Yamaha.
So at the minute I'm just resting up, trying to get fit for the next round of the BSB at Oulton Park. It's another new circuit, and it looks pretty interesting. I know that the results have not shown my potential yet and I am hoping to change all of that at the next round.
I'll report back after round three but if you are there, then please feel free to come by and say 'hi'. I'm always keen to meet the fans and have a chat if time allows.
