Round 1 race report.
After only doing 1 race weekend each of the past 2 years, 2016 & 2017, I have committed to a full season with a 2 bike program. Ducati 848 and Ducati Panigale 1299 Bing prepared by Boulder Motorsports.
Round 1 at #PPIR turned out pretty good in the end. It was a bit hectic getting there and trying to get all the preparation done for the weekend. I was missing a few pieces of equipment but we pushed through without it.
Friday practice was good and the new #Dunlop racing slick tires were super sticky.
I had a couple races on Saturday. I was severely outgunned all weekend trying to race my little 848cc Ducati twin agaisnt mostly 1000cc bikes but we made it work.
I got top 10 in every race, Formula 40, Supertwins GTO, Open Supersport, & Thunderbike with exception of Amateur GTO.
Best finish was 6th place in Supertwins after an awesome race long battle with Bobby Mills also riding an 848.
Overall not a bad weekend with good results especially being gridded dead last in every single race.
Lap times were on point with when I was at the track 2 years ago in 2016.
I felt strong all weekend. I want to give a huge about out to #TeamBodyvisions #ThriveMD #Supplementgiant. They supported me and helpedget mass in shape all off season. Without them I would have been nowhere. They helped me lose fat, gain muscle, build stamina and I will continue to depend on their support all season. To highlight the benefit of the training and nutrition, I put in my fastest and most consistent laps of the whole weekend on the last race of Sunday. It's a testiment to the fitness and nutrion program they put me on.
Again Massive thanks to #Dunlop. I only used 1 set of tires all weekend. And the tires felt as good or better on Sunday as they did on Friday. Incredible. Against fastest lap of the whole weekend set on a tire that problably nhad 75-100 laps on it.
