HEL British Motostar Moto3 Standard – Rd 5 – Snetterton

post-2017-rd5-snetterton

After a two month break from racing and concentrating on GCSE exams,
Cameron was raring to get back out on the track on Friday for the two free
practice sessions on Friday. Weather and track conditions were good at the
3mile long Snetterton circuit, a former RAF airfield noted for its long fast
straights and variety of corners. In both sessions Cameron’s fastest laps came
towards the end of each.

Qualifying on Saturday morning with excellent track conditions saw Cameron
pushing hard but was only able to qualify 9 th in his class. However, in
Saturday’s race Cameron was able to make up some places finishing 6 th in the
Standard Class and gaining valuable championship points; the long straights
proving difficult for him against the smaller, lighter riders.
Sunday and from the start Cameron was pushing hard but again struggling on
the long straights, catching up on the corners he managed to make up two places
but was unable to hold off the smaller, lighter riders finishing the race in 10 th
place but gaining further valuable points and 5 th place in the Championship
Standard Class.

After the race Cameron said he was frustrated not to have had better results
despite riding hard, but Snetterton is a tough circuit for him at the moment with
the long straights. After not competing at Knockhill at least it’s good to come
away from this round with some points and I’m looking forward to Brands in
three weeks. Again thank you to my Dad for his work on the bike, my family
and everyone who supports me
