Team Paramed UK competed in their first round of the British Superbike Championship this weekend at Cadwell Park.
For this event, David would be changing tyre manufacturer to comply to the Metzeler control tyre rule of the British Superstock Championship.
This proved to be a big obstacle for the young Scot although he was able to continually improve with each outing over the Three days of practice, qualifying and racing.
The Championship is full of Superbike pedigree with riders such as Steve Plater, John Mcguiness and Karl Harris!
With only 36 riders allowed on the grid at the narrow 2.1 mile circuit, qualifying for the race alone is a mean feat. Almost 50 riders ride in qualifying with the aim to reach the grid for the race. David put in a valiant effort over these stages and managed 30th position on the grid.
The heat on race day made the riding conditions very difficult. After an average start to the race, David battled over the 15 laps and managed to finish the race
in 20th position!
A good start to his British championship riding, although naturally David was not so impressed and hopes for better in the weeks to come.
"I've got to be honest, I'm a little disappointed not to have managed into the points this weekend. I knew it would very competitive and I was not wrong. It's unbelievable!
I just cant wait for the next race to prove I can go better after more time with these tyres"
