Race report Round 5 from Redlodge
Friday practice on the Air cooled went very well , on pace with the fastest lads considering the bike needs a rebuild and down on horse power so had to push the bike as hard as I could . On the water cooled that went well to still getting used to the extra power really quickly.

Qualifying went well but couldn't get close to the leading group and managed 8th on the grid out of 20 riders .
RACE 1 - AC40 PRO CLASS :
Great start but on lap 2 another rider crashed and his bike fell in my way had no where to go apart from hit it , which I did and high sided and rolled , got back on with help from David Maguire who also stood in front of me so no other riders could hit me , (Thanks David really appreciated it you kept me safe and for getting me up and running again .) I was so cross as I was 2 seconds back from the last place rider ,but put in my best time for the weekend while trying to catch up , I finished 16th and just missed out on 15th by a hundredth of a second not bad going as I was hurting and sore .
RACE 2 :
Had a better race and was battling for 5th and finished 5th place
RACE 3 :
Race 3 I struggled bike really needs a rebuild and still have to sort my corner speed out but a good race finished 6th so am happy , 8th place overall for the weekend .
