Adam Dudley, once again riding for The Fireplace Warehouse, achieved a mixed set of results aboard his Honda RS125 in round ten of the Thundersport GP3 series at Pembrey last weekend.
Dudley took advantage of the Friday practice day, in an attempt to gain valuable set up information and circuit knowledge. In the process, he elected to change the rear shock absorber, and made the switch to Bridgestone tyres, which improved the corner speed, and left him happy with his day’s work, and confident for the weekend.
Over the two qualifying sessions held during Saturday, Dudley improved his times, resulting in him being placed fourth, on the outside of the front row.

The first race saw Dudley get a flyer of a start, slotting into second position, behind series leader Ed Rendell, and just ahead of Ross Ashman in third place. As the race progressed, Rendell and Dudley would ease away from Ashman, to indulge in their own private battle at the front, passing each other at every opportunity. Dudley appeared to be getting the better drive on to the start / finish straight, and eventually took the lead, only to be re-taken after a big slide lost him momentum. Shortly after being forced back to second place, the heavens opened, and the race came to a premature end, with the red flag being shown on safety grounds.
Dudley commented: “The bike is working superb, very fast, and the Bridgestone tyres are awesome! That was a good race, and I’m now looking forward to tomorrow.”
As Sunday dawned, the riders were greeted by wet conditions, and although posting the second fastest time during warm-up, Dudley had a minor off, but with nothing a miss, he would take up his position on the front row of the grid.
Once again Dudley got a fantastic start and got away with the leading group of four, including himself, Rendell, Ashman and Robinson. At about mid-distance Dudley overtook Robinson along the start / finish straight, but in an attempt to regain the position, Robinson struck the rear of Dudley’s machine, taking both rider’s out of the race.
In the final race of the day, Dudley decided to ride for a points finish and found himself battling with Sam Burman for third position. As the race progressed, the tyres were beginning to go off, but the race was red flagged due to an incident.

On the re-start, Dudley got another flyer, but over did it this time, losing the front at the first corner. He managed to re-mount and complete the race, finishing in ninth position at the chequered flag.
Dudley will be back in action in the Thundersport series over the weekend of 13-14 September, when the series visits Anglesey for the penultimate round of the Championship.
Speaking afterwards, he remarked: “That wasn’t a bad weekend at all, it could have been better, but the bike is working well, and we are now looking forward to Anglesey."
