Episode Summary

Hawkspeed_Episode 8
Team spirit remains high after top ten finishes for both Glen and Dean at Croft Race Circuit, and the championship now travels to its north most point - Knockhill Race Park, Fife. All eyes are on the track as the qualifying rounds begin but, while Dean overcomes some technical hiccups to secure a second place start, Glen crashes out dramatically, plummeting down the list and sending his #1 bike barrel-rolling into the fence. And while Dean identifies his personal weaknesses and frustrations, the dedicated technicians work frantically in the pit garage, ploughing on into the night in an effort to ready the bikes for when race seven speeds off in the morning. The bar eventually beckons and, as work on the bikes draws to a close, the team retire and join the competing teams for a drink, where trackside rivalries are put temporarily on hold. As the first race kicks off under glorious weather, Glen rockets from tenth position to fourth, whilst familiar problems arise with Dean's bike - a jittery gearbox means he has to use his #2 bike for the second race. Stuart Hicken watches with bated breath as the second race commences and his riders fight for the top positions. However, Knockhill is one of the tightest circuits in the tour and the competition fast and ferocious, with everyone scrambling for a podium finish. As the season's pace quickens and Hawk's rivals keep snatching the points away, the time to turn things around and win the championship is quickly running out.moreless
