Cadwell Park proved to be yet another eventful, final race meeting of the season with a first place in race 2 for Team Arkoni’s Dave Brook in the Thundersport GB series.
Dave commented: “This is like the cherry on top after a nightmare year. Qualifying went OK. I was second early doors but bumped down to 6th as the session went on. It wasn’t a problem though as I could work with the 2nd row. In race 1 I tried to make a break for the front in lap 1 but was barged back down the grid, I settled into 6th and went faster every lap but tucked the front on a slow corner after no warning from the tyre. It’s an ongoing problem that I’m trying to get to the bottom of.
The start of Race 2 didn’t exactly go swimmingly after getting duffed up into turn 1 and I ended up 7th but over the course of the race I built my speed and eventually went through the entire field to win the race, I was so pleased. I don’t think I appeared ecstatic or anything even though other’s might have been for me. It’s just that deep down sense of satisfaction, a job well done sort of thing. That feeling is what keeps you going through the bad times.
“Race 3 was a non start unfortunately, rain just as we were about to leave parc ferme and no spare bike ruled us out of the race but it wasn’t the end of the world. I’ll go in to winter feeling good and cant wait to get going next year with some new equipment!” added ‘Brooky’.
