I've been on the road for so many days it's hard to remember when I left as so much has occurred in such a short time period. As always, before I begin I really need to thank James and Lidia for their amazing hospitality and friendship.

Notes on races:

Race 1
SuperBike Race 1
Weather conditions - hot hot hot
Tires front / rear - soft dot front - medium dot rear
Total laps - 8
Result - 1st
As is usually the case, there was a little drama before we went out for the first race of the day. During the heat race it became readily apparent that my clutch was slipping quite badly. James had only thirty minutes to change the clutch plates despite the engine being extremely hot. Regardless, he managed to pull it off effectively saving my butt. Thanks bro. I got a decent start in this one and luckily led the field into turn three with a tight pass on my good friend Steve Dick. From here I really put in some hard laps and fortunately managed to get a small gap on Alan Schmidt who was rapidly closing in. Alan had the pace to win, but luckily for me, we ran out of laps before he made up too much ground giving me the win.

Race 2
600 Supersport
Weather conditions - hot hot hot
Tires front / rear - soft dot front - medium dot rear
Total laps - 10
Result - 1st
: I got another decent start in this one, but Alan did one better and we went into the first lap nose to tail. We put in some really god laps and I managed to just squeeze by him going into turn one. From here Alan was all over me, but I was able to hold him off in the end for another lucky win.

Race 3
SuperBike Race 2
Weather conditions - hot hot & even hotter
Tires front / rear - soft dot front - soft dot rear
Total laps - 12
Result - 1st
I got a decent start and went into turn two with Alan once again. This would turn out be a really good race between Alan and I. I managed to get in front only to have Alan right on my rear fender for most of the race. With the temperature being as hot as it was, the race and weekend were taking their toll on me and I had to dig deep to keep up the pace to the end. Again, I got lucky and was able to hold off Al for the win.

From here I have a week off and then it's on the road again to Mosport. No rest for the wicked. :o)

Stay tuned.
