Great write up J, thanks for that.
Brilliant to see Ross 2nd fastest in the first speed trap. What seems bizarre though to me, is that Ross was 2nd, Glen was 9th and Paul was a lowly 17th @ 2.4mph slower than Ross through the first speed trap, but through the second speed trap Paul was 10th with 146.5mph and Glen and Ross were a lowly joint 21st (even though Glen finished 2nd!) @ 2.2mph slower.
I guess the speed traps must be more about final drive from the previous corner and/or slipstreaming, than they are about actual perfomance. But either way, it was a great shame Ross binned it. It would have been great to see him get some good cup points. He must be able to take a lot of heart from his battle with Lowry aswell. To fight it out with someone who can definately win rces, but be very pleasing.
