WSSP: Strong Progress at Donington Park for Tom Edwards and YART.
Tom Edwards and YART leave Donington Park with extra Championship points.
Tom Edwards and the YART Team round out the weekend with a few extra world championship points, finishing with a solid P14 in both race one and race two.
A lot of positives can be taken for the team this weekend, learning another new track on the calendar and Tom testing out the 600 in the wet for the first time.
Free practice one was off to a good start, Tom was adapting well to the track and making good times. But that ultimately ended on a flying lap after hitting a wet patch on the track at turn five, causing a huge high side.
Tom luckily avoided any major injuries with only a small graze on his inner thigh and a nasty bruise to show for it.
The team showed their mechanical strength, completely rebuilding the bike in time to take the track for free practice two. Tom was one of few riders braving the wet conditions, but it was valuable experience for the young rider being his first time on the 600 in the wet.
Next up for Tom and YART is Imola 14 – 16 July.
