Hi everyone. Back from racing at Silverstone at the weekend. Running next years Evo spec bike in the Supersport and ended up with a 22nd and 17th (3rd in cup) in both races. Had to start back of grid for race 1 because of a crash at the start of qualifying. Hopefully a couple of cup wins and closer to top10 at brands hatch. N Coates

Looking back at Assen I was happy that I have made a bit of progress with the new Evo bike. I was a bit rusty as I have not raced in a few months and working with a new bike and team was going to take time.
I finished 21st and 22nd and 6th and 5th in the cup in both races which is not ideal but the lap times improved as the weekend went on and was just a couple of sessions behind.
Silverstone is 4-6 October and it should bring better results and hopefully a couple of cup wins.
