Itís all about the shoot-out!

Cadwell Park was a cracking weekend for us! Tommy was flying all weekend and he really put himself back up there as the man to beat this year. From Friday to Sunday we were consistently topping the time sheets and that is where we need to be.

In both races the whole team were confident that two wins were on the cards. In Race One Tommy stamped his authority early on and convincingly won the race. Tommy showed great composure and speed to pull away from the field and put in a faultless performance.

Race Two looked like it was following the same pattern with Josh only passing Tommy following a mistake over the Mountain. By the time Tommy had composed himself and got back up to Josh the red flags came out and brought a premature end to the race. Sadly Tommy was unable to get a double win and was forced to settle for second. Still it was a really positive weekend!

Yukio also came on strong at Cadwell and continued his comeback from injury. I still think Yukio could be a real spoiler going into the shoot-out. There is no doubt he has the ability to hit the podium at all three remaining rounds, which could really work in Tommy's favour. We just need to keep him on the bike.

The all-new shoot-out phase of the Championship is going to be really exciting. Everyone following the series is going to be gripped by the action as quite simply anything could happen. We know that for Tommy it's now about winning races and podium places. Anything less would be a massive blow to his Championship charge. What makes this format interesting is that there are so many riders that are capable of finding the podium. Also you can't count out the likes of Stuart Easton and James Ellison as they are going to be out to spoil the party and they have the tools to do so. The action is going to be electrifying! You would be a fool to miss it.

Also the Worx Crescent Suzuki Team and I are doing at chat show tomorrow evening in Northallerton. So if you are about in that area make sure you come down and see us at the Golden Lion Hotel. Should be a laugh!
