Tommy Searle admits its going to be difficult to win title

Yet another weekend of bad luck for the gritty Brit. Both races and a retirement in qualifying saw Tommy fighting back to top 3 positions after crashes in both moto’s.

With 5 GP’s still remaining and still 250 points up for grabs nothing is set in stone as yet and we’re sure Tommy and his team will give 100% in their fight for the world championship title.

“My chances of winning the GP disappeared yesterday when another rider crashed right in front of me during the qualifying race. I turned to miss him but the radiator was damaged by his handlebars so I had the outside gate for the GP and it was impossible to get a start in the top 20 from there. I used a lot of energy to come through to third in the first moto and the first two were too far ahead to catch, but as usual I was even stronger in the second race. Another rider lost control at turn two and we crashed together, so I was completely last, but I never stopped fighting and took second place with a coupler of laps to go. It’s hard to accept the bad luck I have had this year, but I will keep fighting for the title even though it will now be difficult.”
