Swindon Advertiser: Troy Batchelor

Troy Batchelor represents Swindon in the British GP in Cardiff tomorrow, and will be giving his all as he tries to repeat his superb performance in Copenhagen last time out.

“To get 20 points last time against those guys was amazing and everything went right, but sometimes it can got the opposite way and you get two gate threes and are out after every track grade and you just don’t have things going right.

“I’ll definitely go out there with a positive attitude and see what happens for me. If you go out and have a good first race you know you are on the money and you can work from there.”
