BSB Silverstone 8th September - 10th September round 9 of 12 British Supersport class.

Silverstone is one of Jamies favourite tracks on the BSB calendar, but unfortunately we were plagued with bad weather and bad luck!

Free practice 1 was rained off for Jamie due to a lot of work being completed on the bike prior to arriving we had to risk assess and realised there was nothing to gain. Free practice 2 was also difficult it was half and half conditions, Jamie completed a few laps but everyone's lap times were so far off the usual pace. So Jamie had very limited track time going into qualifying on Saturday.

Unfortunately qualifying didn't go much better it started to rain seconds before we went onto track so we tried to get out to complete some laps before the track was dampened, but it soon stopped. Jamie completed a few laps and was starting to feel comfortable but a red flag and a long out lap meant Jamie didn't feel he had a chance to get to the pace he knew that he is capable of.

The weekend continued on a downward spiral and due to rain either just before or during every session it was a whirlwind of trying to make tyres decisions.

Some how Jamie managed to retrieve some championship points on Sunday and has left the weekend one place higher in the championship in 8th place. Jamie is feeling very disappointed as he had been looking forward to his home round all season but we just didn't carry lady luck.

Quotes from Jamie:

"This weekend has made me more determined for round 10 which is next weekend at Oulton Park, hoping for a good one!"

"I will be back stronger and hopefully fighting for those elusive podium positions!"

"I am having one last massive push for my supporters club bags before the draw of the free competition (the winners of this will have a great time at the last round at Brands Hatch) - details can be found on my website or facebook: /"

"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. Don't forget to contact me if you want to join this list!"

Looking forward to meeting anybody that is coming to Round 10 at Oulton Park 15th - 17th September. Come and see me and have a cup of tea!
