2018 Ulster Supersport Champion.
What a day at Enniskillen two more race wins and enough points to secure the Ulster Supersport Championship for the third year in a row.
It wasn’t all easy though the first race I was pushed hard by Simon Ried who led the opening laps of the race mid way I took the lead and managed to hold him off crossing the line with just over a second between us.
Race two I had a start finish lead, again it was Simon who was my closest challenger until he out braked him self going into the second to last corner. Going into the last lap my pit board said I had a three second lead so I relaxed a bit, maybe a bit to much, which allowed Mark Conlin to close right up, I took the flag by only 0.2 seconds, a little to close for comfort.
A great finish to a busy year, between racing here at home in the Ulster Superbike Championship and across the water in the Thundersport GB Championship it’s been tough going but a great experience.
Next outing is my first BSB at Brands Hatch next weekend. A dream come true! I had a decent run at Brands earlier in the year in the Thundersport Championship with two wins and a second place. I’m under no illusion that it’ll be an easy ride BSB is in a different league all together but hopefully with that bit of previous track knowledge I can put in a good show and maybe get a point or two.
Then on to the final races of the year at Bishopscourt for the Sunflower Trophy Races.
Huge thanks to everyone who is working so hard in the background and helped in any way to make it all happen.
