Episode Summary

Hawkspeed_Episode 7
Despite the disappointing result at Mondello Park, team principal Stuart Hicken remains optimistic about the team's chances in the championship and, with the current leaders still within catching distance, the fight for glory in the 2005 season is far from over. After chasing the Mondello Park meeting with a relaxing night on the town in Dublin, the Hawk team now look to Croft, North Yorkshire, to rectify themselves for the woes suffered in Ireland. Having crashed out of the 2004 race at Thruxton and suffering injury setbacks, Croft is a relatively new circuit for Glen who, after inconsistent turns in pre-race tests, approaches the sixth meeting of the season with an air of anxiety. Dean, on the other hand, is just glad to be far away from Mondello Park, and shows that satisfaction on the track, securing a second place start and narrowly missing out on pole. With his performance on the bikes improving, not even his recurring arm-pump muscle strain can dampen his spirits. Front and second row starts for Dean and Glen put the team in good stead for Croft - another tight, fast circuit - but the sheer power of the leading competitors' bikes means the Hawk riders must battle fiercely to maintain their positions. A good first race is dampened by poor weather conditions and, just as Glen starts to climb the ranks, a red flag means his journey to the top of the leader board is put on hold. This, coupled with the team's struggle for sponsorship and the subsequent lack of testing, means frustrations once again run high and the fight for the championship grows evermore desperate.moreless
