Finishing in front of fellow rising roads stars such as Dan Cooper, Dan Hegarty, Dominic Herbertson and Sam West, a delighted Adam, stated about the four lap race:

“I’m really over the moon with this result. I could not have done it without my Team members and pit crew. They all played their part.

Of course all of this would not be possible without MSS Colchester Kawasaki, Roy Hanna Motors, Metzeler tyres, and all my Sponsors, so this is for all of them.”

Speaking about the second Supersport encounter of race week, Adam said:

“I’m now really looking forward to the second Supersport race, and with my first race under my belt, I know that I can improve in different areas of the circuit. I’m very happy.”
