Super weekend's work for Fleetwood rider Ryan
and live on Freeview channel 276
Having completed his eight nominated rounds in the ‘Cup’ class, the Myerscough College motorsport lecturer can now only gain points in the top 15 of the main Supersport class.
The Fleetwood rider did just that for the first time this season in his home event.
Friday’s free practice saw some different gearing and suspension setting changes tried out alongside running on used tyres.
Saturday’s first qualifying session then saw Garside put in a couple of banker laps, while trying to find some clear track.
A best time of 1:42.456 put him in the second session, where he used the same tyres as in session one.
He posted a best time of 1:42.8, giving him 25th position out of 40 on the grid.
That was topped by a best result of the year in Saturday’s 12-lap sprint race.
A decent start was followed by a loss of momentum out of turn one, trying to avoid the aftermath of a crash further up the field, before recovering.
He finished 13th in class, giving him three points and ensuring he scored his first British Supersport points
Sunday’s warm-up was followed by the 14-lap feature race, in which Garside began well and kept up with the group ahead.
However, lap three saw him on the slip road to avoid going into the back of the rider ahead.
He spent the rest of the race fighting back, taking 21st overall and 17th in class ahead of the next race at Donington.
