Interclub Round 3 was held on the 8th June @ P.I. And what a day! The decision to drive down on the Sunday morning was looking poor, given the crap nights sleep and thick fog that accompanied the 125km drive. After scrutineering, briefing and waiting a small time for the track to clear, practice commenced. Some dubious track conditions necessitated caution and it was more an excuse to get out on the track. The first race of my day was the Presont Over 500cc. I use this as an additional practice, but a new competitor to the class, #27 Marcus Simpson is adding additional pressure.... The start was eventful as there was an incident with #22, with a flipping bike. I waited 1 lap for the red flag, but the start line crew cleared the circuit well in time. I was racing a few of the 600's and was doing ok, until on 2nd to last lap when #27 took me into turn 1. Bugger! Coming over Lukey, I outbraked him into MG and took the lead into the main straight. Only to lose it again into turn 1...!A repeat attempt at MG was thwarted by another rider and I couldn't make it past again. Best time of 1:57 First F3 race was held in clear conditions. Gridded next to #27, this was going to be good. My start was excellent, the SV gets off the line so well and I am getting better at forcing my way into the first turn. Some small dices too place, some good overtakes and I was ahead of #27. Until turn one on the last lap. I caught up by MG, but couldn't make a pass back and came 2nd in the TS. Started 14, finished 10th. Best time of 1:55 2nd and last race of the F3 was held in the late afternoon. Another excellent start and I put my head down and just went as hard as I could. I overtook another SV (running GSXR bodywork) and was getting some good times. Conscious of my #27's excellent turn one ability, I compromised my line into that turn but reduce his chance of getting past. Some good battles with the 400's and I managed to hold on to the end. Best lap of :154. Thanks to all the volunteers, without whom this just wouldn't happen. Redninja had a mixed day. Hope you're not too sore. Next race is in September @ Broadford.
