AFM 2018 Round 2 at Buttonwillow Raceway
This round was relatively uneventful. I was struggling with rear tire traction, which made it difficult to drive my laptimes down to my 1:55 goal.
Despite that, the battles were more intense than ever, with lots of overtaking.
Practice with Dave Thomas
The racing hadn’t even started yet, and I had a great time going all-out with Dave on his venerable S1000RR.
Great battle with #775 Nick Csik, followed by a surprise as Paolo rejoined the track in the second to last lap at bus stop. A short battle with the Aprilia, and I was able to secure first.
Things get heated as the battling with Nick gets even more intense, he rides to 1st and I ride to 2nd.
Amazing battle with Nick Csik, but sadly my camera battery failed so there is no video. I took second place to Nick, who secured an amazing finish-line overtake in the last lap.
A bit of an off race for me, I must need to work on my endurance! I finished 4th.
A ZX6 in my class gets a phenomenal start. After battling him, I’m able to ride to a clean 1st place finish.
I’m definitely looking forward to round 3 at my home track, Thunderhill East!
Alex at Fastline Cycles for getting me set up with an amazing tune at the last minute
