Episode Summary

Hawkspeed_Episode 5
Over the moon with the result at Mallory Park, Hawk Kawasaki leap forward to third in the championship, putting them in good stead for the rest of the 2005 season. Yet over the horizon comes Oulton Park, Cheshire - the bogey circuit for Hawk. The stakes are high as the team travel from their best circuit to their worst - a slip-up here could damage their position in the championship. A gratefully-received gap in the schedule allows chief technicians Paul Hallas and Bruce Godfrey to take some well-earned time off trial riding, whilst Paul talks through his career to date and tells how he initially jumped aboard the Hawk racing team. Then it's onto the dreaded Oulton Park where, after a surprisingly impressive qualifying round, Glen and Dean are both on the front-line of the starting grid. The first race gets off to a roaring start with both Hawk riders keeping up with the front-runners and, despite expecting a poor performance, both put themselves in a good position for the second race. However, nerves rise in the pit garage as rain fast approaches, and the technicians try to pre-empt the weather and take yet another gamble on Dean's tyres, whilst a breakdown in communication triggers an argument between team principal Stuart Hicken and the rest of the technical team. Emotions run high as the Hawk Kawasaki team desperately try to avoid succumbing to their fears of Oulton Park and losing their grip on their championship third place.moreless
