The 2021 race season continued in the FAB-Racing Minibike British Championship with Aeziah Divine back in action.
After testing some gearing variations, and not seeing what they wanted to Divine’s pit crew reverted to the settings from Round 1’s Race 2 where he was feeling at his best and battling mid-pack.
By Race 3, of Round Two, Divine felt really good with the bike and shaved almost 4 seconds off of his 2020 best lap time at Lydd (50.55) by reaching 46.63.
Divine held the pace for most of Race 3, it was an intense race with him leading the second pack after securing his best start of the two days where he climbed from 9th to 5th by the first chicane, he then defended 6th for a few laps then settled into 7th.
Divine was forced to make a risky move going into the final corner while battling another rider who is fast and wanted to get cross, Divine is good at late braking at the corner but he was putting the pressure on so Divine had to brake even later to try to turn in first, the bike pulled a stoppie going in but he brought it down to get back on the throttle and out ahead of another rider, securing the position ahead until the checkered flag.
Divine said. “These two rounds were the best I’ve felt since racing at FAB. I understand a lot more about my bike and have been working towards a mega season this year. I want to give a special shout-out to Justin Sousa, Coach Cyril Whitter III, Spencer Butterfield, and GG (my gran) for continuing their support for me throughout 2021 which I am very grateful for.”
Divine concluded, “I also wish to thank all of my sponsors for supporting me on this journey as none of this is possible without you.”
