I leave Donington Park with my head held high on the back of two positive race day results. I sadly missed out on any test time before the meeting and had to rely on my distant memory of a track day I did in 2004! Luckily for me the track hadn't changed very much. After two refresher laps I was on on track for a respectable qualification time which resulted in a P21/30 1min 24esc. In an effort to make it even more difficult for myself I decided to use Continental racing slick for the first time (which have totally different characteristics to any other tyre I've used before), brand new suspension in the front folks and new Brembo brake disks & race pad. The upgrades were fantastic which increased my confidence and the slicks were tractable with more grip than I knew what to do with. My plan for Race 1 was to further bed in the new components but it turned into a dog fight with my closest competitors resulting in a enormous late braking lunge into the last corner of the last lap to secure 22nd. Race 2 was a lonely affair after a much more aggressive start. I picked off a few places on the first lap and found myself at the head of a train of riders . With a clear track ahead of me I could focused on my rhythm and improving my corner entry and corner speed. With the Grunt of the Honda SP2 out of the corners I managed to keep the pack at bay much to their annoyance. This resulted in a finishing position of P19. For the final race (no3) we made an adjustment to the bike to try and improve the handling characteristics. Sadly this change didn't give the feedback I was looking for and I had to work hard to get the bike home in 22nd. Although the setup was detrimental to the performance it was an important decision to make. The end result being we now have more data on the settings for the bike which we can use at the next round. There's plenty to work on for the next meeting but overall I'm happy with how the Donnington event turned out. Thank you to everyone who makes this possible. I couldn't do it with out your support. ... See MoreSee Less

In hot conditions Talan Racing Team kept their cool. Massive congratulations to Andy H for his podium finish in the final ThEx Rookie race of the weekend. William S also performed extremely well for his first visit to the circuit. Upgrade signatures all round for the two ThEx racers. Talan wasn't able to turn a wheel in the races due to a mechanical issue with the bike that caused a retirement from qualifying and any subsequent riding.

Big thanks to all the team, Darren, Danny, Gareth, Gio, Helen, Derek, Peter for their help and support at the meet.

Great to meet others who came along to see what we do.

Thanks to MWSolicitors, BDS, Held, MotulUK, GetGeared, BMCRC, Lemonade Screenprinting, R&G, for supporting the team.
