Freddie Sheene made his race debut at Thundersport Donington Park over the weekend and came away with three podiums in the Pre-National 600 class.
The Australian, whose dad tinkered with bikes a bit, had apparently been very nervous before the event (close friend Alex Lowes said he was 'Shitting it') but settled down on a Thursday track day before qualifying in third place on his ZX-6R.
"I'd done a load of track days and when we looked at the times, I saw that I could be competitive so I thought I should have a go. I experienced everything in one weekend, first race, first crash and first podium, it was pretty mint really," said Sheene, speaking to bikesportnews.com this evening,
"I don't know what I will do now. I don't think I am going to take it too seriously, just have fun with it and see where it leads."
