Blog | Tarran faster and well in the points at Silverstone | 2013

Hi everyone,

This weekend at Silverstone was one of my best this season.

After a tough qualifying with the new tyres and some suspension problems I only managed to qualify 17th.

For Race 1 the WP guys made a small change to my bike which made a big difference! I got a good start and got away with the front group but on lap 1 I got pushed wide and lost the tow to the leading group so from then on it was a lonely race! I went a second faster than qualifying with consistent lap times and I was gapping the group behind me, with a few crashes on the last lap I came round 9th! Which I was very happy with.

Race 2 was strange for me. I went a second slower than Race 1 and although we didn't change anything suspension wise I didn't have the same feeling as Race 1, which was a shame.

Hopefully Misano will be better!

This weekend I have a British Moto 3 Championship round at Donington Park!

See you,
