Thoughts of the 2018 season:

‘It has been a challenging year in the Supersport championship to say the least. The team as a whole has continued on a huge learning curve with a results list some what of a roller coaster. I feel that I began the season with a strong pace, however, a series of red mist moments left me out of the results having crashed out during some bold overtaking maneuvers that didn’t pay off.

The end of the season brought some constancy with series of finishes in the points. The highlight for me must be the Silverstone round. To begin with we were all disappointed to find the GP circuit was not being run, however, the short new circuit offered us the best results of the season with a second row qualifying and P6 & P7 finishes for the races.

I cannot thank the team enough for their efforts and the dedication they show to continuous progression. Our focus now turns to the 2019 season as we begin our testing in March.’
