After a restful summer break, the VisionTrack Racing Team were excited to be back on track. The second half of the season kicked off this weekend at Silverstone – a circuit both riders have had good results at before.
Friday was a colder August day than is typical – but dry. With this looking to be the only dry running of thew weekend – the riders got straight to work. Josh had good pace, and his best time put him in 19th place.
Saturday was a wash out and the wet conditions created a nervous atmosphere all the way down the paddock. Josh showed great pace but was unlucky to set his fastest time under yellow flags. His second best time good enough for 24th place on the grid.
In the race itself, Josh had to take two long-lap penalties that were handed to him in Assen. With this burden, he had little chance of making the most of his home GP. Nevertheless, he had some chance to get involved in some battles and crossed the finish line in 25th position.
“A lot to be proud of after this weekend to be honest, had a good pace in the race and a great weekend overall but obviously with the long lap, there wasn’t a lot I could do about it! We’re in a decent way at the moment so I’m counting down the days till the next one to show the steps we have made!”
