Stroud-Racing-cornering

Round 1 of the Southern Downs Race series got underway at the weekend where the Stroud Homes Honda made its debut.

Andy make a mistake during practice and unfortunately put the bike into a slide, luckily there was minimal damage and the weekend was able to continue as planned.

Qualifying

Qualifying didn’t go to plan only gaining 9th spot on the grid and times were down on expectation. “The third row isn’t ideal, but it is a short run to corner one so with a good start I may pick up a spot or two.”

Race 1

Race one was horrific and the lack of practice showed after a good start an up to 7th, Andy fell off the pace over the last couple of laps and dropped to 10th. “This is very disappointing, especially after seeing the lap time sheet”.

Race 2

Stroud-RacingSunday was much better after a good night sleep and a lot of thought into the poor performance on Saturday. “I made some changes to the bike, gear ratios, seating position and tyre pressure and tried to forget the day before. The first race was much better, again a good start, up to 7th and only losing 1 spot during the race and staying with the guys ahead. This continued during the day and by the 4th leg was able to hold onto 6th and see the times come down almost 2 seconds on Saturday.”

The overall result was 7th, a great job by Andy after a troublesome start to the weekend and showed plenty of promise for the coming rounds.

The next round is only 3 weeks away, to be held again at Morgan Park Raceway in Warwick.
