Round 1 Brands Hatch - Spoiler

Woohoo, what a start Youngy has made to qualifying. The man is 40 years old and has just knocked 0.4 seconds off his pb to stick himself bang on the front row in fourth place and just 0.1s behind pole.

Should be a great race tomorrow. In all honesty, I don't see the Came Yamaha boys of Billy McConnell and Westy getting beat. They have qualified first and second and Skippy McConnell won last year so loves the place. Seperating those two from Youngy is Pauls good friend and former championship winner Glen Richards, so it is a hell of a front row.

Hot on Youngy's tail is his new team mate Jason O'Halloran just 47 hundredths behind. He beat Youngy in Q1 by 0.2 seconds and then Youngy pulled his pb out to beat him. One of the things Paul said he was looking forward to this season was a team mate that could really push him. It always gives extra motivation.

With a quarter of the 38 starters on 675's there will sure be plenty of guys to cheer on this year. A shout out to David Jones on the Clwyd Racing 675. He has qualified 18th overall, but 1st in class (the supersport cup) so best of luck to him as well as all the other Triumph riders.

I will be there tomorrow, so will post up some pics tomorrow night along with the results, if no-one else has already done so. The British Supersport race starts at 15:30 GMT and is live on British Eurosport. Anyone stateside can watch the live timings here http://www.tsl-timing.com/?loc=major...eventid=101304 if you can't get long on to any internet streaming. Just scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the live timings button.

Got back from a great day at Brands. Anyone know why John Simpson was disqualified from the superstock race. It was fantastic, definately the race of the day.

Sure was the race of the day. Unfortunately he had the same problem as Youngy last year at Donington. The bike was too light. I don't know how much by, but there is a decent interview with him here http://www.bikesportnews.com/news-de...ON&newsid=5331

The superstock race was superb and it was brilliant to see Jimmy Hill on the Map Triumph take the win. Damn shame the John Simpson was disqualified, but such a great race.

With the full on British Supersport race, there were no less than SIX 675's finished in the points. With Glen Richards unfortunately high siding in the earlier superstock race and possible breaking three ribs, he was unable to start the superport race, so Youngy was starting 3rd and his teammate Jason O'Halloran was moved up on to the front row next to him.

Youngy got off to an absolute flyer at the start and took the lead in to turn 1. There he remained for the first 11 laps which was just awesome to see, but then he fell back as 19 year old Sam Lowes took to the front and stormed off to a great lead before ther red flag came out. The Triumphs ended as follows:

4th - Jason O'Halloran - Oxford TAG Triumph
6th - Dan Cooper - MAP Centurion Triumph Racing
7th - Paul Young - Oxford TAG Triumph
10th - Allan Jon Venter - MAP Centurion Triumph Racing
13th - Luke Mossey - LM Racing
15th - David Jones - Clwyd Heating Racing

David was also first in the Supersport Cup element so many congratulations to him. He unfortunately missed out on the fastest lap of the race in the cup by one 1,000th of a second!

Here are a few photos from today.

Oxford TAG Triumphs 5 bike team! (inc a 125)


AJ Venter looking like he has already worn the arse out of his leathers and this is round 1!


Not sure if Dan Cooper got dressed in the dark this morning. Check those boots out!


David Jones who finished first in the Supersport cup


Youngy off to a flyer and showing the youngsters the way. In almost no time he had created this lead


which I am guessing was around 1.2 seconds! lol


Westy tracking down Youngy


Before Sam Lowes does them all and clears off at the front. Brilliant maiden victory for him and he is a great lad. Need him on a Triumph next year! lol
