BSB Assen 29th September - 1st October round 11 of 12 British Supersport class.

The weekend started off very promising for Jamie with dry weather and the sun shining! Free practice 1 and 2 were spent with Jamie familiarising himself with the circuit and made improvements throughout with my lap times.

Woke up Saturday extremely disappointed the forecast was correct and the track was wet for the start of my qualifying session, after a couple of laps Jamie realised there was a dry line so came in to the pits for a tyre and setup change to match the drying conditions. This took a chunk of the 25 minute qualifying session. Jamie was still relatively happy coming out with a 9th grid position for race 1.

As Saturday progressed the rain started and continued to get heavier, the bike was put back to wet settings and Jamie finished the race in 11th place.

Jamie started Race 2 from P17 due to the lap time he completed in the sprint race. Jamie was quite disappointed with this and knew it was going to be difficult to be at the top end. Jamie had a great race and battled throughout, coming over the line in 5th place. Due to a rider ahead receiving a penalty Jamie was awarded 4th place. The lap times Jamie was completing were very competitive and if he had started further up the grid Jamie was confident he could have ran in the leading pack.

Quotes from Jamie:

"I can't believe that podium place has eluded me again! I am leaving Assen feeling positive after a good weekend"

"Massive thanks to Tela Associates for supplying the tyres for the weekend! And of course thank you for the continued support from Slidecodor and Andrew Pipework Services and Mark Sadler at Go Racing Developments."

"Thanks to my supporters who continue to buy my merchandise all of which keeps me on track and enables me to compete. If anyone is interested in supporting me contact details can be found on my website or facebook: /"

Looking forward to meeting anybody that is coming to the final round at Brands Hatch 13th Oct - 15th Oct. Come and see me!
