2 x 1st's for Lee @ Mallory Park

Lee races with New Era at Mallory Park and wins both Sound of Thunder races

"After problems with the bike last weekend, we were keen to resolve the issues this weekend" explains Lee.

"I'd been struggling with gear selection, and the problem returned again. It litterally took us until the last race to realise what the problem was, and (thanks to Lou) we realised it was quite simply the angle that we had got the rear sets set up."

Anyway, good racing, Chris Norris had his first outting on his 1098, and is quick straight out of the box, so looks like we'll have some battles this season - and he hasn't got used to the bike yet!"

I was still a second of the lap times I'd like to be setting, but it was a cold windy day, I'm still getting up to speed with the changes we've made to the bike and like I've already said, I was struggling with gear selection every lap, so quite pleased with how it all went."

4 x 2nd's for Lee @ First Round of 2009 Season

Only 4 weeks after having surgery on his knee, and only 1 test on the bike Lee enters the first round of the 2009 Thundersport GB Championship

Despite being very rusty and having a very swollen and sore knee, Lee manages to finish 2nd in all four races.

"I'd actually been signed off work for 6 weeks, but we couldn't afford to give away so many points at the start of the season, so we entered Mallory to try and pick up as many points as we could."

"I haven't been able to train due to the surgery, we've also made some big changes to the bike over the off season and the bike was only ready a week before, so I knew we were going to have a challenge ahead of us!"

"All things considered I was quite pleased how the weekend went. I took qualifying and the Saturday's racing quite steady, just trying to get back into the swing of things and getting used to the new geometry of the bike and the 16.5" wheels and slicks."

"Sunday was a much nicer day from a weather point of view and I was determined to try and fight for a win, however the bike had other ideas! I just started to get somewhere near the pace in the first race and the bike started giving me gear selection problems - I almost pulled out of the race, but managed to find gears again and finished the race."

"Between races we thought we found the problem, but they returned again after about the 2nd lap of the 2nd race, so I had to ride a bit of a measured race, as every now and again I would find a false neutral - frustrating, but at the end of the day we are only 20 points of the Championship leader instead of 100!"

"Well done to all the guys, Michael Price - who won all four and was unstoppable, Jamie Wilkins in the Streetfighther class, and Stuart Bradford for his podium in the second race. Best Wishes to Nino who crashed heavily at Devils Elbow - get well soon chap!"

"Looking forward to Cadwell in a months time, hope to be fitter by then and have the bike singing!" Lee.
