Donington Park – Rd1 – 2015

HEL Motostar Series British Superbikes 2015
Round 1 Donnington Park

Riding an unfamiliar bike in unfamiliar surroundings , Cameron went into round 1 at Donnington Park feeling fairly apprehensive. The Honda 125, kindly loaned by Alistaire at Mororsense, is not a race prepared GP bike like the others out there in the series , although this gave Cameron a disadvantage it also gave him a much needed confidence , win a similar riding style to the less powerful bikes Cameron is used too , he could safely push hard and commit.

During practice and qualifying Cameron’s pace was not a million miles off of some of the other more experienced riders, on much faster bikes. By Qualifying 2, he had shaved 2.5 seconds off his lap time. By race 2 , Cameron managed to get his lap times by a further 5 seconds. Finishing the weekend in joint 9th with 13 points .

A fantastic result for the 1st round, the familiar riding style and power of the Honda 125 gave Cameron the confidence he needed to push hard and show that with commitment he can dramatically improve with every lap.

With round 2 at Cameron’s home circuit of Brands Hatch only 2 weeks away, who knows what he might achieve on that familiar Tarmac.
