ROUND 5

BSB Snetterton 30th June - 2nd July round 5 of 12 British Supersport class.

Went into this race weekend feeling comfortable due to having good base settings from a previous test day a few weeks before. Weather forecast slowly changed and was looking very positive! New set up in the paddock as I was offered a garage this weekend due to my current championship position, so I was surrounded with the big teams. The big teams come with big lorries and lots of mechanics which is slightly different to my small family run team but we were not to be daunted.

Jamie chipped away at his times throughout free practice and qualifying, placing him in 8th position to start race 1. Jamie turned this into a 7th place finish collecting more valuable championship points. Woke up Sunday to more glorious weather and started Race 2 again from 8th place, Jamie battled throughout the race and came home with a fastest personal lap time around Snetterton circuit and a highest position to date in the Supersport class of 4th place!

Quotes from Jamie:

"Massively pleased with my 4th place finish from a basically underfunded family team, but still envious as my favourite drink is champagne, I was so close to a podium I could almost taste it as I crossed the line."

"I would like to give a massive thanks to all those that make my racing possible and a special thanks to my sponsors Slidecodor and Andrew Pipework Services. Also thanks to Mark Sadler at Go Racing Developments, who continues to try to make my bike go faster on a minimal budget."

"Just coming up to halfway through the season and funding is getting difficult, so if there are any local businesses out there who would like to discuss an advertising opportunity I would love to hear from you. I would also like to thank local company DB Tints and Wraps who have helped me to put together some Jamie Perrin supporters merchandise, please find details on my facebook or website -www.jamieperrinracing.com / www.facebook.com/jamieperrin75."

Looking forward to meeting anybody that is coming to Round 6 at Brands Hatch GP - 21st July - 23rd July.
