Brads First Ride in 2013 - April & first time out on his 600 Superstock Machine

We finally managed to get Brad out for the first time this year and the first time on his old 600 GSXR k8 in the dry.
Mallory Park on a Wednesday afternoon racers test day, ice cold winds with a below freezing chill factor, yet sunny.
Brad loved every minute, mixing it up with some of the Triumph Triple and Superstock 1000’s who were all in preparation for the first round of BSB this weekend. We all struggled to believe it was only his first time on this bike in the dry and he was only 16 just three weeks before, setting some of the quickest times of the afternoon.
A fantastic job done with little grip on the freezing cold surface and proved he is worthy of any ride within a National Championship, having 3 previous years under his belt within the BSB support classes has really paid of, giving Brad a level of confidence and knowledge how to adapt to the larger bikes.
It was sad to see the other Teams packing up as they were making their way down to Brands Hatch for the first round of BSB and Brad knowing its where he wanted to be going.
Brad has certainly not given up and we are all trying to find a financial sponsor or a team to take him on, but for now its going to have to be a track day as and when we can, until somebody can put Brad back on track.
