UNDER-FIRE Mildenhall captain David Mason is determined to get back to winning ways starting this Sunday at West Row.
Unknown to most supporters Mason is nursing two broken fingers sustained in an accident at work last Friday but the Sussex based racer was unaware of the extent of the damage until being examined by the medical staff at Buxton.
Mason said” I injured my left hand on Friday at work and then slid off in my first race on Sunday further aggravating it which obviously was painful for my further two rides, I have now got the fingers strapped together and will be ready to race on Sunday”
The Fen Tigers captain then went on to say “I want to start scoring points for my new team as I know I can and should be doing, I am going back to basics this week with my bikes, I am just not gating but my confidence remains high as I know I can do a job for The Fen Tigers”

Mason admits it was a long journey home for him and his back up team on Sunday evening as a rider that once obtained an average of over 11 points at this level “we left home at 7am and did not get back until the early hours and after all that to score zero was not good for me””
He knows that he must deliver a decent performance on Sunday and has set himself a high personal target “I want at least 10 points from my 4 programmed rides on Sunday, I need to start banging in the points as I feel I let Mildenhall and our supporters down at Buxton but did not want to cry off injured as I thought I would be OK and I usually go well there but obviously the fall did not to my hand much good and from there it went bad to worse”

He continued “I seem to be going OK at home but having a nightmare time away and some of that is down to me making silly mistakes like picking the wrong engine to use but I am going to get it right and to start scoring both home and away for The Fen Tigers “
Mason knows that the talking however has to be done on the track and starting this Sunday he knows he must deliver a Captains performance.
