The first round of the 2005 Super 1 series got underway on Saturday with points scoring timed qualifying at 4.00pm.
We felt that for our first run at this level of competition qualifying 50th was not so bad, we would have been happier
if we were faster.
On the Sunday morning we drew a midfield grid for our first heat (fair), but it all went wrong while being collected in
someone else's accident at Billie's the first time round, typical. Jamie soldiered on with damaged steering and a sidepod
rubbing on a rear tyre. That resulted in a relatively poor 20th place finish. Our next heat was about 10 races away so we
had plenty of time to right the damage and hit the track running for heat 14. Jamie went well, running in 5th for most
of the heat, until  about three laps from the end a trian of three or four slipped past between the Hairpin and Horse-Shoe
demoting him to 11 place at the flag, but it had been a good run and would be repeated in the next heat although
this time we only managed a 14th.
This meant the 'B' final and we managed the penultimate row of the qualifiers in front of the 'C' final runners.
We had changed our gearing, which proved advantageous, we should have done it earlier. Jamie watched, more carnage
unfold in the early laps and made some progress again towards the end of the race, but still only managed 21st.
But it had been his first 'B' Final at Super 1 level racing
We came away very content, but it should have been a little better.
