ROUND 4


BSB Knockhill 16th June - 18th June. Round 4 of 12 British Supersport class.

Knockhill is not Jamies strongest circuit due to previous experiences of leaving injured. We also have little data and not much experience of the track due to only visiting once a year due to the distance of it being near Edinburgh, Scotland. The weather was reasonable, not perfect due to it being extremely cold for the first day on Friday. However Jamie did complete a reasonable amount of track time and started to get some good lap times.

The weather looked up and did get warmer and during qualifying and race 1 Jamie's times continued to fall with him finishing 8th in race 1. Bagging himself some points and a race finish at Knockhill.

With Jamie feeling that the gremlins had left him he started the feature race confidently and was battling away in the sunshine for 8th place, disappointingly with 6 laps to go of the 26 lap race Jamie slid off at the hairpin.

Quotes from Jamie:
"Not the best weekend with having my first non race finish of the season but very happy to be walking away from Knockhill with one race finish, a personal best laptime and fit ready for Snetterton in under two weeks."

"Really looking forward to snetterton after having completed a test day there a week ago, so I have a good set up and lap times already"

Thank you to my sponsors, Slidecodor and Andrew Pipework Services. Hoping to see some local supporters and Round 5, Snetterton - 30th June - 2nd July.
