Brad Ray at Le Mans

Blog | Brad in the CEV podium hunt at Le Mans

Hello everyone!

Last weekend I was racing at Le Mans for the CEV Spanish Championship alongside MotoGP.

Qualified 9th on the grid only 0.6 off pole position! Got to the race day and made a few changes to the suspension the make the bike handle better when I crack the gas to stop the front popping up.

Got a good start in the first part of the race but unfortunately it got red flagged because of a nasty accident on the start line! I hope the 2 Rookie riders who were Involved are OK.

Second part of the race, didn't get such a good start and finished the first lap in 12th. Bearing in mind it was shorted to a 9 lap race after the the accident, worked my way up to 7th and made a mistake, run off track and got back on 1 second back from the group.

I caught that up within a lap and was with the group again. On the start of the last lap I was 5th and was looking strong for a podium finish but nearly had a big high side out of turn 2 so dropped back to 7th and that's were I finished!

Very happy with that result but for sure if it was a full race I think a podium was possible!

See you all in Mugello,
