Full report attached.
Successful day despite not finishing the race. After a fantastic first lap, Daley was already setting personal bests with the BMW. He settled in and was very comfortable on the bike. The first pit stop was slick and we gained valuable time on competitors. Daley moved up to 17th and was battling with the next few riders, up to 15th. As a second pit stop loomed, Daley was set for his best result yet setting a PB of over 125mph. Daley entered the pits on lap 4. Excited for what the next 2 laps had to bring.
However it was not meant to be. As a problem with the rear tyre was pointed out in the pits. With Daley choosing a 6 lap race tyre, the team didn't have a spare ready, in the pits. Thus forfeiting the race and dropping out of the top 15. Although initially upset, Daley and the team are taking positives from today and are looking forward to the rest of the races, this week.
Thanks for your continued support as always.
