Round 3 at Rowrah
Ryan was on track on Thursday as M4 Karting hired the track , Ryan was very fast on both bikes and loved the extra track tine well worth the £70 as he was out every half hour .
Friday was just as good getting into the low 55s on the Water cooled and low 56s on the air cooled .
Saturday/Sunday we had rain and bike issues as everything was so wet. The clutch went on the WC bike , then carb full of water and wouldn't run , and in a rush to change clutch and clean carb for the race dad must have bent fuel float so out of 3 races Ryan had 2 DNFs ,and an 8th place . The AC didn't do not much better just managed to get 3rd in qualifying as the bike was slowing down and bogging out and again water in the carb , cleaned it quickly for his 1st race and Ryan was flying and finished 3rd but he said it wasn't picking up , Race 2 and Ryan went straight to 1st place and on the 2nd lap his bike slowed and everyone went by , he managed to pit and the clutch had gone so another DNF , Dad quickly changed the clutch , chain and the snapped sprockets but we couldn't bed the clutch in and had to be done in the race , Ryan was 1st again but half way round the bike was slowing and didn't have the power to pull out of the corners and was being over taken and managed to finish in 7th due to the clutch . So a very expensive weekend and Dad feels he let me down but its not the case it's the bikes fault and just one of those things and yes I was upset as I'm way down in points now but we have 5 more rounds left .
On a better note Ryan had his 1st go on a Mini GP 50 and was really impressive , was not phased or nervous at all , he just got on and rode it and amazed us all and a big thank you to Ryan Johnson for making Ryan smile so much after a bad weekend and Mason for letting Ryan use his bike.......Thanks guys we all appreciate it
Hopefully Ryan will have a better time at Tattershall in 3 weeks time.
