Rowan Miller - The Comeback

Recommended Posts

After a 9 week recovery after breaking his arm it was back to the scene of the accident for the 13 year old Rowan Miller at Pembrey for a round of the NGRRC GP125 championship this weekend.


After a somewhat frustrating Friday Rowan was only able to complete 7 laps due to inclement weather. This meant it was in at the deep end on Saturday on board the Turn1Racing RS125 Honda. The first time Rowan had raced this machine and with the limited running on Friday a base set up was still being found.


In race 1 from 5th on the grid Rowan gradually reeled in the leaders and managed to grab the lead on lap 4, however the lack of race fitness and set up began to tell and Rowan had to settle for 2nd place.


The final saw Rowan struggling with bike set up and so he had to settle for 6th place.


Sunday morning was awash and although the sun was making some strong but brief appearances as the 125's went to the line another heavy shower drenched the riders. Rowan staring from 5th place once again took the lead in lap 1 and was never headed running out 6 seconds clear of the chasing pack.


Sundays final saw Rowan on pole position which he made the most of leading the pack for the first 3 laps until a couple of small mistakes saw him drop back to 4th place. Not deterred Rowan put his head down and within a lap was back into the top three setting the fastest lap in the process a titanic battle the ensued between Rowan and his two protagonists Row however had to settle for 3rd place at the end of the battle in what must have been the race of the weekend.



Rowan also competed at the British MOTOGP round Donington in the support GP125 race, against strong opposition from British championship riders Rowan aduited himself well with a strong 5th place finish.




I think we can safely say that Row felt no ill effects from his injury and the subsequent recuperation period

Big Thanks to TURN1RACING

Gary and Row
