Last weekend I raced in the first round of the CEV Spanish Championship at Catalunya and with 55 riders entered I knew it was going to be fun.
On Saturday it was raining all day. I had two qualifying sessions and at the end of the day I had qualified 27th on the grid.
On race day it was also raining. I had one warmup and was 14th fastest. After that I had two 16 lap races. The first race went well as I found a good rhythm and lap after lap I was gaining positions and I finished 13th which I was really happy with.
In the second race I got a better start and went from 27th to 19th position in the first lap. On the third lap I was battling with one of my fellow Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup team mates, but unfortunately we clipped wheels and we both crashed out.
I am very happy with how the weekend went as I learnt a lot. I cant wait for this weekend in Jerez for round two of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup.
See you all soon Olly #45
