That was a cracking morning out. HE was gridded 7th and spent the first 8-9 laps hanging on to 6th place as the top 5 had honestly cleared off a bit. Then one of the Vivaldi boys lobbed it (i think it was Brogan) but Hego seemed to be having a few issues with turning into Paddock and was passed a few times. THen a little mistake after Graham HIll and suddenly he was 12th....
Finished the race 12th which TBH in your debut on the bike and in a class the scale of Superstock with riders like Steve Brogan, John McGuniness and Adrian Coates, it's a bloody superb result. I'm really pleased for him and the team.
Spent the weekend spannering for a mate in Superstock cup, Steve Hix #12.
Had a cracking weekend, qualified in 3rd place on the grid and finished 5th in the pouring rain. Steve had his best lap of brands (49.7Q and best of 53.4 in the race), best qualification and best race result all in one weekend!
Yep, we were both there all weekend. We arrived on thursday evening and left sunday evening.
I intended to look for Hego but honestly never got time! I can't even think how many times we changed the wheels in that bike over the weekend! It was really hard work but it was worth it to see the results he got and how happy he was with them.
