As could be expected, the top step was the goal. A mechanical right at the start meant that he was way back in eighth after the first pit. For the rest of the race he chased through the field but ultimately ran out of time to close on the much deserved winner. As you can tell from the picture below, Tim was really and truly happy with his performance. He should be, he overcame a lot of adversity with crash related injuries and license problems that prevented him racing some key events.

I'm planning to interview Tim for a second blog entry so that you can get an insight into what it takes what had to be overcome to get here. Look for that in the next few days.
