The last round of the MXY2 Championship saw us take the long drive from Hawkestone Park, to Langrish, Petersfield, 3¼ hours later we arrived; I spent the journey working on getting the swelling down from my dislocated knuckles sustained at the 6th Round of the Redbull.
I was very nervous knowing I only had a 29 point lead in the Championship, with my hand playing on my mind; I had to focus on my riding. Went to the gate for qualifying, the track was fast with big drop downs, this playing havoc on my hand, but had a good qualifying and qualified 6th.
Out for a sighting lap, back to re-peg, and to the gate for Moto 1, got a good jump, but got squeezed out in the first turn, having to work hard I came over the finish in 7th.
With only now a 22 point lead, I had everything to work for, I went to the gate for Moto 2, got a great start, came round the first corner in 2nd, made a mistake and went back to 6th, was holding my ground, but the front washed and I went down, getting back on my bike, I pushed hard to finish 10th, securing enough points to claim the MXY2 Championship Title.
I would like to say a big Thank You, to all the people that have made it possible for me to achieve this Title, Simon from Grittenham Tracks, Nigel from Meredith MX, and Jez from Zook for being my mechanic, and Fusion for my graphics, and all my Sponsors.
