Successful weekend at Cadwell for Jenny

Free practice 1 and 2 on Friday went without hitch and Jenny, her crew chief Roger Smith and mechanics Darren Nicholson and Andy Perkins worked through an array of bike chassis settings to alter her machines geometry to help her wrestler her 200bhp machine through the tight and twisty all action nature of the unique Cadwell Park circuit.

Race two was equally as good but this time Jenny managed to pass Aaron early on and settled into a similar race long chase of another rider John Ingram.

Rider Jenny Tinmouth said:

“I’m absolutely over the moon with my Cadwell Park weekend, I love the circuit but its my bogey track and one I always struggle at, it’s such a physical circuit and its really important to get the bike set so you are not fighting it all the way around the track and tiring yourself out quickly.   I’ve never had the benefit of an experienced team before to impart their knowledge of bike set up that works at Cadwell and everything we did helped me massively and I had my most successful weekend at the circuit, I’m pleased with the improved lap time and more importantly race two, which was a vast improvement over race one, our constancy was much better and we were strong to the end even at such a physically demanding track so I’m really happy, it was a great learning weekend with all the set up changes and we finished it strong so I’m now looking forward to my home round at Oulton Park”
