ROUND 3

BSB Oulton Park 29th April - 1st May. Round 3 of 12 British Supersport Class.

Jamie arrived at this round after a test day on the previous Thursday feeling pretty confident in the setup of the bike. Further tweaks were made through the two free practice sessions on Saturday which gave him an 8th position and a personal best lap time around Oulton.

Qualifying on Sunday morning placed Jamie 10th place on the grid for race 1. Due to nothing being on track until midday, it was a quick turn around between qualifying and race 1 and to Jamies disappointment a 50% chance of rain was forecast for the race start at 5.30pm. Rain tyres were prepared, Jamie set off for the grid with dry tyres on even though there were spits of rain in the air. Flag went down Jamie got away with the front pack and was sitting in a comfortable 8th place with 2 and a half laps to go when suddenly hands started to be raised from the riders infront of him when rain started to fall on different parts of the circuit. The red flag was put out but sadly Jamie had taken quicker action to the red flag which caused him to lose the 8th place and end in 9th.

More personal best times achieved in the race and one place up in the championship standings to 9th.

Jamie finished in 7th on the Monday race, to end the weekend on a high.

Quotes from Jamie "I'm really pleased to have got another personal best lap time, especially on my birthday weekend!"

Race 4 is at Knockhill on the 16th - 18th June, anyone pop by the awning to say hello that will be there. I love to meet my supporters and thank you to all my sponsors including Slidecodor, Andrew Pipework Services, DB Tints and Wraps and Tela Associates.
