After issues at the previous round which was tracked down to a faulty fuel cap, causing a vacuum in the system, Andrew was using his wet bike engine for this round. A lower spec engine that had not been set up on the dyno but got him on track at least. Not knowing where to start with the jetting everything was jetted very rich to be safe at the expense of performance. 
 
A steady start in qualifying ended up with a 9th place grid position. 
 
Race 1 was again a steady affair with the bike still running far to rich and hugely hampering the performance, but a 10th place finish was respectable, with Andew gaining confidence. 
 
Race 2 saw a stoppage and with the waiting around the bike fouled a plug....did we mention it was rich? Unfortunately that put Andrew out of the re start. 
 
Overnight Andrew decided to come down on the jetting to get it running a bit closer. 
 
Having to start from the back of the grid for race 3 Andrew hauled himself up to 8th with the bike feeing much better. The lack of engine set up time meant things were far from perfect but the jetting had brought it closer. 
 
Race 4 with a much better grid position Andrew carved his way through the field all the way up to second place, a mistake on the final lap saw him drop back to 3rd but it was another podium result and a new 350cc class lap record in the process. 
 
A fantastic result that no one expected given the mount of time to get the bike on the grid. Still thoughts of 'what if' whirled around if the engine had had some set up time, but some work carried out on the handling really did help the overall package and allowed Andrew to make much more of what he had.
