Jamie Harrison update – First meet 5th April Oulton Park.

We recently shared that in 2014 Slaters have chosen to sponsor local and successful bike rider, Jamie Harrison, and we shall be sharing with you all the latest updates from Jamie’s race meets.

Here is our first instalment from his first meet on Saturday 5th April at Oulton Park which was an NG Road Racing meet.

Race one
Jamie started out 32nd on the grid, but this was due not having raced with the club before. The race conditions were bad with heavy rain and lots of spray, but despite this he managed to work his way up to finish in 14th place.

The Open Race Qualifier
Next up was qualifying for the open race where he was fastest for nearly all of the session, however in the final few seconds of the session he was pushed back to second place.

Race two
Jamie started from 14th on the grid. The race was going well and he was able to work his way up to 3rd position, however the race had to be cut short due to a red flag which meant that his final position was taken from the previous lap, so he officially finished in 5th position.

The Open Race
The grid for the Open Race at the end of the day was from qualifying so starting 2nd got a good start and he settled into 2nd place but was soon over taken and pushed back to 3rd. This is where he stayed finishing just two tenths of a second behind second place.

Overall it was a really good day, a very positive first meeting of the season. Jamie was happy with his results and lap time and is looking forward to the next meeting at Oulton Park on Saturday 26th April.
