Unexpected Trip and Racing!

Posted on 20th May, 2019

A few weeks ago Andrew got asked about an unexpected trip to one of his favourite tracks...JEREZ. Of course he said yes and with only a few short days to get everything ready the road trip down south to drop off the bike, began. With the rest of the team unable to get time off work it was a solo rider trip with the great help of Mum T! Andrew enjoyed a brilliant 3 days on track underneath the blazing sun of Spain. Andrew had 1 small crash during one of his sessions but both him and the bike are okay.


Andrew and Mum T got home from Spain on Thursday 16th May and didn't have long to rest as the team were racing at East Fortune on Saturday 18th May. Paw T chose to race the Mille this weekend, Andrew also had his Mille as the zx10rr was not yet back from its travels and Sammi had her bright pink Suzuki. The aim of the weekend was for Andrew and Sammi to get signatures which allows them to keep their race licenses as without them they can not do track days unless you have a road license. Paw T already has his road license but couldn't miss out on the fun!


Sammi was first out for combined practice and qualifying but with the session being cut short due to a red flag Sammi only got 3 laps in total and without a preferred lap time this put her to near the back of the grid. Paw T and Andrew's turn next and Andrew put himself 2nd on the grid and Paw T 6th out of the Thunder Bikes as it was a mixed class. All 3 riders finished their races and it was mission accomplished. 


Next up is a training night at Knockhill on Tuesday 21st May.
