Saturday’s Racing Update
Starting on the front row from 4th was always going to be a struggle to get into turn 1 with the lead, but add to that Wayne’s poor start and he was sitting in 8th position on lap 1. Wayne clawed his way back to 5th position and then suffered arm pump which made it very difficult to hang onto that position. Wayne finished the race in 5th position with the second fastest time of the race and also clawed back one point towards the championship lead.
Wayne got a better start and only lost one position at the end of the first lap, it was a dicing match mid way in the race with a few riders of which Wayne managed to break them with 3 laps remaining. He managed to finish 4th in the race after experiencing braking issues.
Wayne said: “Today was a bit of a struggle which wasn’t expected, I got arm pump in the races and just felt that I had to make the best of a bad situation. Sunday we will make some changes to brakes which will hopefully see me be a lot more competitive and stay in the championship hunt for 2015”
