A tough weekend in Scotland, while the rest of the country bathed in sunshine and heat it pored hard on Saturday afternoon at Knockhill. All action was stopped for around two hours due to standing water on the track, this put the timetable out for the day and as a result the 2nd Junior Supersport race was postponed all together and will be added to another round later in the year.
Saturday's first race saw a steady ride from Jamie as he settled in to ride the 2019 Yamaha YZF R3 for the first time in race conditions at Knockhill. Starting in 31st place on the grid, Jamie came in 26th overall and the 2nd place Yamaha in the field.The race was cut short after a race incident brought out the red flags.
Saturdays race two was completely abandoned due to the heavy rain.
Sunday got underway early to make up for time lost on Saturday.
The two Sunday races where a challenge due to technical issues, one of those being clearance on the Yamaha R3 exhaust system. This was continually grinding out on the raise curbs that Knockhill has. So ongoing adjustments where made through out the day.
The weekend finished with a lot of bike setup done and lots learnt. Now ready for Snetterton later this month and hopefully will be chasing down some of these Kawasaki's that are currently dominating the class.
