Motorcycling: Harrow's Steve Heneghan rode the Quattro Plant, HCL, Yomotto Yamaha R1 to a brilliant finish at Snetterton after first lap problems prevented him from a higher finish.
Steve started the weekend well on the Norfolk track, known as one of the fastest circuits in the UK.
After a good time in Friday's practice session around the two-mile circuit, he was looking good, and being clocked at over 150mph on the back straight, a phenomenal speed to reach, before braking hard for the tight esses section, that is taken at less than 50mph.
Steve ended the day with the first qualifying session, placing him in a provisional 32nd position. He improved his time from the warm-up by almost a second and increased his speed through the speed trap. The second session the following day was not as warm, leaving Steve with his original time, and placing him on row nine of the grid.
The first race itself started well for Steve, with a blinding start taking him to the middle of the pack. But, after the long back straight, he had to run straight on, as there was nowhere else for him to go, with another rider squeezing him out. This placed him dead last, as he had to run around the corner and wait to get back on track and racing again.
He slowly clawed his way back up the order, passing another rider almost every lap, and jumping the order up to a brilliant 28th position from the 40-strong field.
Steve did not get to race again due to storms causing delays earlier in the day and the light conditions would not have been suitable, so the second race will be re-run at a later date in the year.
Steve now has a small break until the second visit to Oulton Park, when the sixth round of the Championship takes place on July 20, and he will be hoping to be back up to speed and have better luck at the Cheshire-based track.
