Episode Summary

Hawkspeed_Episode 9
With the technical hiccups dragging Glen and Dean back to seventh and tenth finishes at Knockhill, the team look to the faster track at Snetterton Circuit, Norfolk to claw some points back. But the nightmare continues as Glen suffers another agonising crash-out during test runs, shattering his collarbone and putting him out of the eight meeting entirely. With one rider down, Stuart desperately searches for a replacement in time for the qualifiers, eventually recruiting ex-Hawk rider Lee Jackson. Meanwhile, Glen's technicians try to salvage something out of the twisted metal of the freshly damaged #1 bike, and Dean's team continue to alter the settings ahead of the qualifiers, all the while worrying that their fuel supply is running low. With the pressure to perform mounting on his shoulders, Dean walks around the circuit discussing technique with Stuart, whilst Glen marvels at the amount of space he has at his disposal in his motorhome. Unfortunately, things get off to a shaky start on the track. The superior power and speed of the other teams means Dean can only scrape a third row start, whilst Lee's three-year hiatus from Hawk's bikes shows as he qualifies in twenty-third position. The lack of sponsorship and funds rears its head again as the faster, more tested bikes rip past Dean on the long stretches. With the odds stacked menacingly against them, things can surely only get better. Yet a wrongly-marked tyre distributed from Dunlop means Lee has to pull out of race one and, as Dean struggles for speed against the front-runners, things do not look good. Frustrated and angry, the team look forward to the coming five-week break, where a serious rethink and plenty more testing needs to be done in order to turn their championship bid around and realise their dreams.moreless
