Ian brought the bike home in a steady 24th position in Thursday’s postponed Supersport event. The race was marred by a fatal accident involving the kiwi rider Paul Dobbs, a friend and close competitor of Ian’s.
Ian’s race was trouble free, holding off challenges from John Burrows, Rico Penzkoffer and David Johnson. The little R6 ran faultlessly and Ian pronounced himself satisfied with his performance.
Ian chose to sit out the re-run 4 lap Senior race held on Friday out of respect for Paul Dobbs.
