Snetterton BSB: Dixon bounces back from crash to finish fourth fastest

Despite a mid-session spill that curtailed his track time, Jake Dixon went fourth fastest in today’s second free practice, a mere 0.126s off the top spot.

The 22-year old hit the deck just over half way through the session, but made it back to the pits in time for the Lee Hardy Racing squad to send him back out with 10 minutes to spare.

RAF Regular & Reserves man Dixon admits not attending the official Snetterton test hurt he and the team, but believes there’s much more speed to come if he can make a few tweaks.


“Not doing the test when Haslam, Mossey and all the top teams doing the test – that hurt us a little bit in some respects,” he told Bikesport News. “But the bike is working fairly well, so if I can change a few things, hopefully it can give me the consistency to go fast and feel comfortable going fast.

“I had a small crash, but it was nothing major. Glenn caught my eye as he tipped in front of me, he was just on an out lap, and I just hit a bump at like two mile an hour and fell off the side. 

“But I picked it up, brought it back and the team got me back out for the last 10 minutes, and we went quicker again.

“There’s a few things I want to change after today and I think we can go a lot faster yet.”
