Race Report from Glan Y Gors in Wales :
We arrived in north wales hoping for some great results in both classes as Ryan is 5th in the championship on the LC40 Elite and we think 16 or 17th in the Mini GP50 Class . Ryan really pushed hard this weekend and totally amazed us on the GP50 as he only rides it at the cool fab rounds and has been on it since March this year .
GP50 :Qualifying : LC40 Elite Class / Mini
Ryan was on pace from the start in both classes with very mixed conditions , Hes great at late breaking , a very smooth rider and his corner speed is great . well done Ryan
LC40 - Qualified : 4th
GP50 - Qualified 2nd
LC40 Elite Class :
Race 1 : Amazing race 1 battling for most of the race , were looking forward to the You Tube videos when they come out later today , edge of your seat stuff.
Ryan finished in 2nd place
Race 2 : (Wet Race) Great start into 2nd place half way round dropping slowly back to 5th place , just about to start lap 6 and the red flag came out , end of race 5th place finish , got back to pits and poor Ryan could'nt see his visor was misted up as dad cleaned it with anti fog and must have shut vents accidently , also tyres were shot ...bad dad....new for race 3 . Well done Ryan
Race 3 : (Mixed conditions) Good start pushed hard finished the race in 3rd place . well done Ryan
Ryan finished the weekend 2nd overall with a trophy and 2 medals . A very proud little boy and very proud parents . Now 4th in the championship and 24 points behind 3rd place .
Mini GP50 Metrakit Class :
Race 1 : Amazing race , awesome over taking on corners and great to see him with so much confidence on his bike , he raced his socks off as he was on fire he amazed us finishing in 2nd place and will be a great race on You Tube .
Race 2 : (Wet Race ) Bad start something not right , ended in 5th 6th at the start of the race , pushed hard got to 3rd , gears messed up at top corner , crashed out , rejoined last to finish in 14th place . Well done son for finishing the race with a sore leg where bike landed on you and bent handle bars . The cause for the crash was the clutch master cylinder sticking at the start and then every time he changed gear, while changing down for the top corner half way round the clutch stuck locked the back wheel and Ryan came off , Rob had a new one so changed for race 3 . Well done Ryan
Race 3 : Ryan had a great start pushing hard in 3 rd place , Eddie crashed in front of Ryan and finished the race in 2nd place . Well done son
Ryan finished the weekend 3rd overall for the weekend and very well deserved Ryan is now 13th in the championship.
What a fantastic weekend and one we will never forget with 4 podiums , 4 medals and 2 trophy's and to top the weekend we will share our exciting news ...in the next post.
