Thoughts of the 2017 season:

‘It has been a challenging year moving up to the Supersport championship. The team as a whole have encountered a huge learning curve as we have had some brilliant results for our rookie year in the class, however, there have been many downs also. As I was always told, if you aren’t crashing then you aren’t trying.

I am pleased with the top 10 finishes that we have achieved throughout the season along with new personal best lap times and damp sessions challenging at the front. I am over the moon with the team for their hard work and dedication along with all of our sponsors and followers.

I am excited to begin the 2018 season and hope for a greater consistency and stronger results at the sharp end of the championship.’
