Well what can I say. We are now at the end of my first season in Superstock 600 and it has been a year full of learning. Even if my results don't show how much I have improved and how our team has improved, I would just like to say a massive thank you to EVERYBODY who was involved this season. I cannot thank you all enough and it absolutely means the world to me that I have people behind me wanting me to do well!
Start of the weekend was not great. I think my confidence had taken a knocked after Donington, so I wasn't where I wanted to be but brought the bike back in one piece.
Saturday's qualifying, I managed to step up my game a little and and ended up up in 11th but with the track being half wet and half dry and me not stopping in the pits I didn't check my tyre pressures and they were way too hard so was running wide everywhere.
I was feeling good and comfortable running the pace and I was no where near my limit, unfortunately I made a mistake after the safety car went in, I tried too hard straight away and ended up having a huge highside. I was really disappointed as I know I had the pace to run with the front runners!
Really sorry to the team and all the sponsors!
Will be back next year fighting fit and ready to get up there #1 #33 ✊
I would like to say a huge thank you to my dad Dale Beanz Thomson who puts EVERYTHING into my racing and it's more than what people see, people don't see the sleepless days, nights, weeks, that it takes to keep us going. Thank you so much dad and I will repay you soon - we will have a less stressful year next year.
If it wasn't for the following people it would be impossible to make it with Dad already working every hour under the sun.
