Matt Kuhne finished 13th in the British 125 GP Championship at Round 2 at Thruxton. Matt disappointed after qualifying back in 20th place had problems at the start dropping back to dead last place. Matt managed to get back up to 30th place after lap 1 and continued to pass riders to get back to 13th place after the red flag finished the race 2 laps short of full race distance.

Matt said: the bike just bogged off the start and I had to pull to the side of the track to avoid being hit. After all the bikes passed by I managed to get going and pushed hard to get back as many places as I could. I am so disappointed because the team worked so hard to get the bike running so well for the race. We had problems with performance on Friday and Saturday but by this mornings warm up we managed to be 10th fastest in the 10 minute session and I was over a second quicker than my qualifying time. In the race I was able to again improve my lap time by over another second with a lap time that would have qualified me on the front row. I just have to get up to speed on these new circuits quicker so I can qualify better for the race.
