|Andrew? Where are you?|
This was a good thing and a bad thing. Good thing was that the racing would be much tougher and longer. Bad thing was our late transfer meant we were both starting from the back row, 6th row to be exact.
The start was a bit scetchy, long paved straightaway with a left hand turn onto gravel. The goal, keep it upright and more importantly, don't let anyone else take you down. I managed a decent start and went about weaving through to the front.
|Matt, off the front taking the holeshot|
By the time I got close to the front, Matt was away with Taylor Carrington and I was opting to let Andrew Coe do the work to chase them down. Andrew brought us up to them and continued to drive the tempo putting in surge after surge. I made a few efforts myself but the only place I really had an advantage was over the flyover, and Taylor and Andrew were more than strong enough to pull me back on the wide open sections.
|High speed run-up|
One race, One podium. I can live with that :-) Matt and Jay finished the day off in 7th and 10th. Great start by the team with no issues at all.
