Firstly a big thanks to Steve and the team for their hospitality this weekend!
What a weekend it proved to be , with 3 bikes out for the weekend inviting local Eazi-Grip™ sponsored TT Rider Michael Niblett to join The Ram and Josh.
With most of the weekend wet John and Josh were more than happy , John rode well in the practice and qualifying rounds and came home 12th in Saturdays sprint race taking another 1st place in the Cup , Michael pulled in midway through after snapping the crank but had put a fast lap in to move him 8 places up the grid , Josh was in a league of his own on the wet track and managed to finish 13th in qualifying in the weekends only dry session.
Sunday came and The Ram and Nibbo went out for the feature race , after just half a lap it began to rain and the race was red flagged , the lads had to choose their tyres as the track was dry but the clouds said otherwise , after just one lap of the restart the Rams choice of a Wet Front Tyre proved him wrong as he slid across the gravel at Hawthorn Bend , Rider was fine and it was down to Nibbo to carry the team forward , Nibbo finished 12th overall and picked up 3rd place in the cup , not a bad effort considering he’d never seen track or bike before Thursday.
Josh was out straight after the Supersport Race and got off to a flyer , battling for 3rd place with a group of riders he lost the front at Clearways and ended upright in the gravel , he managed to keep running and get back on the track in 13th and battled to take 11th place by the end , Josh was disappointed with the outcome but also content with his best finish of his 2013 season.
