SOAR Practice Weekend


First time running the bike this season, no changes to the bike but planning to try stiffening the suspension. We ran Technical in the morning but a load of dirt had been kicked up on to the track from turn 2 through to the second 90 degree corner – turn 5, and it felt super slippery but I think that was more due to the cool track rather than the dirt. At lunch we voted to switch to Modified so that we weren’t running through the dirt. I dialed up all the damping settings a bit and it felt a little stiffer but didn’t notice a huge difference so I dialed them in a bit more. The front brakes didn’t feel very grabby so I bled both the calipers and the master again on Sunday when I wasn’t riding – they felt better but still not as good as Josh’s R6 brakes.

I remembered to put the GoPro on for about the last session of the day when I followed Josh round for a few laps.
