This weekend at Oulton Park we went 7-6. I know with the bike on these tracks I can go quicker, I’ve done that before, so I know not to be disheartened that the bike isn’t good enough just yet, but we’ve just got to be patient now and wait for the settings to come.
We’re not a long way from where the pace setters are, it’s a small distance but it’s difficult to find that speed. I’ve just got to stay out of trouble, not crash, just keep chipping away at the points. Then just be patient for the bike to improve.
I’m missing a bit of time on the exit of the turns, as soon as I tap the throttle I’m losing the grip. The bike enters the corners brilliantly, and it holds the line great but as soon as I open the throttle, the back just spins. That’s for the team to work on.
I’m still pleased to be in the running for the showdown, of course, that goes without saying, it’s important, that’s what we’re all here for but obviously the focus at this point isn’t to continue coming fourth, fifth and sixth, the idea is to start winning so we have to keep focused on that.
