Changed one of the fork springs looking for more front end feel and just found more weaving! So that's being put back for tomorrows qualifying. Just five of us on 1.59s with me in 4th. Bit cross with myself really as I know I should have done better. Qualifying is at 9am. Nice.
Just done the session. Bit of discussion amongst 848 riders as we are sharing the track with the Nordic BOTT. The organisers are wanting us to race and share the start with them. ok we're lapping faster overall but I don't want to arrive at the first corner on the opening lap to be confronted by a gaggle of slow 1098s who simply powered off the line.
Thanks to four counties for their support and sponsorship of my new V121Pro coaching support vehicle. Make sure you phone them to give them the opportunity to quote for all your track / racing / vehicle insurance requirements.
2017 is now upon us; all things considered, like most people I'm really feeling 'the pinch' and will have to seriously think about the time I take away from work. As I freely admit, I'm just a truck driver who is quite good on a bike, so to compete in anything this year I will need to secure financial support to help me through the season.
If anyone can make a contribution, no matter how small, it'll be greatly appreciated.

On the roads I've won the Macau Grand Prix on a ROC 500 and the North West 200 Supersport 600cc race. I'm the last Briton to have won the Imola 200.
