Blog | Brad in great form and enjoying Silverstone | 2014

Hello everyone,

Silverstone was a good weekend for me!

FP1 was good, I was getting used to the track again, getting my lines right and the bike setup for the rest of the weekend! I ended up finishing P4.

FP2 we only got 1 flying lap in the dry conditions and then it started spitting; we then changed to wets but the track dried out and we were on wet tyres on a dry track, from the 1 lap I did I ended up P2.

QP was okay, we were still making changes to the bike during the session and I was running P6 on my last lap; I just couldn't get a slipstream that I needed to help me along the straights. I ended up P8 which at the time I wasn't very happy with but we can always improve.

Race 1: I got a pretty good start and was making my way throw the pack, I got to third and was catching the leading 2 when it started to rain; we then had to pull in the pits and wait for it to blow over. The restart was a 5 lap race so it was mayhem on the last lap I was running P3 but then got slipstreamed down the straight and then missed and gear coming out of the last turn, I finished the race in P5, was a bit annoyed but gave it my everything.

Race 2: I got a pretty good start and was running in the top 5 on the opening laps! We were all fighting the whole race and it was the best race I've had in ages! Was P3 going into the last straight and got slipstreamed; I tried going round the outside on the last turn but made a little mistake and ended up P4 I was happy with that because again I gave it my everything.

See you all in Misano.
