Blog | Brad racing at the front


Hello guys,

The weekend went OK, in free practise I was 5th for most of it and ended up 7th in the last few minutes.

Qualifying 1: I was in the top 3 all the time and I came in in the last few minutes to change the suspension and didn't get a chance to try it and I dropped back to 5th.

Qualifying 2: I was in the top 3 or 4 and on the last lap of qualifying 2 I found some time and went quickest but then Hanika and Lopes pipped me on the last lap and it pushed me back to 3rd but still happy with my qualifying a front row start

Race 1: I didn't get a very good start I went back to 9th on the 1st lap and I had to fight my way up to the leading group which I did within 3 laps. I was staying with them but couldn't make a pass anywhere (safely) but ended up 5th which was a good result and good points

Race 2: I got a better start but still was 5th I was up with the leading group and I wanted to try and get into the top 3 to have a chance for the podium so I went up the inside of Lopes into turn 6 and lost the front and took out Lopes (sorry Lopes). I had no feeling in the front end of the bike, it felt like it wanted to under-steer.

Roll on Silverstone, though I've only ridden there once before I am really looking forward to my home race.
