The 7.27 was a personal best time, and the incremental times on all runs were among the best it's run so far. One of the highlights for me were the 60ft times, a string of 1.07's and a 1.06, which is really on fire!
Due to slightly wet weather there were only 2 qualifying sessions on Saturday, 10 bikes made a qualifying pass in total and a 7.29 put us in second place behind Fil Papafilippou who ran a stunning 6.71.
In the first round i met Dale Leeks, who left me on the tree which is quite unusual but his race ended prematurely when the bike wouldn't change gear and we took the win. In the semi finals it was like old comp bike days, and i ran against Allan Davies. Allan however had been having a terrible weekend, damaging pistons and had to work hard to build an engine out of parts to even make eliminations at all. His poorly engine did well to run a 7.7, but we ran yet another 7.2 to take the win.
And so we were in the final - against Eric Richard. Eric had run a couple of back to back 7.4's so i knew we had to make a clean run. Eric left first but i'd pulled ahead by 60ft and never saw him after that. And so, we took the win with yet another 7.29.
That makes it two events in a row!
In the points championship we are a little further ahead now, but it's by no means a safe lead - 190 points or so is only 2 rounds.
