ACTIONED PACKED ASSEN TT

                 

FPW Racing had a positive weekend with Jamie Davis but unfortunately Brandons weekend did not go to plan in race 2 with a race long battle involving five riders went wrong for Brandon when the group encountered 3 different back markers in the later laps, with 5 bikes entering the final chicane on the last lap with the back marker Jodie Fieldhouse in the middle, the outcome could only be carnage, Brandon was forced on to the Green and because of tome penalty’s imposed was given 5th position after a 20minute deliberation by race control. Jamie has his best race of the season after a race long battle with Jerry Van de Bunt crossing the line in 8th 0.183 seconds behind him and only 11.6 seconds from the leader
