Round 2 Snetterton 300 2015
Weekend Review, Snetterton 300.
Well 2015 round 2 is complete. It was a mixed weekend to say the least. Saturday morning was raining and as I had entered two classes, it meant I had to be out to qualify for Thunderbikes at 9:15.
The track was wet and my new helmet steamed up every time I breathed. My time 3:02 saw me placed in 20th for my first race. Next up was the minitwin qualifying. The track was still wet but the rain had stopped and I set a time of 2:51 placing me 29th.
I pretty well finished every race last or nearly last but this weekend was about track time and building confidence after my off at brands. I started 8 races and finished 7 retiring from one with a bike issue.
I completed 43 laps of the track equaling 129 miles and finished on Sunday with a 2:21 second lap that is the same as the personal best I set in 2013. I definitely felt happier at the end of Sunday after spending so much time on the bike, just need to sort my starts now.
