Andy Reid saw his British Supersport season end prematurely after a nasty crash at Oulton Park a fortnight ago, but the 21-year-old, who set pole position and the fastest lap en route to a race one victory at the Cheshire venue, is already focusing on his preparations for 2016.

"I should have just won the race, it's as simple as that," lamented Reid, who suffered a clean break between the radius and ulna on his left wrist. "I'm really sore, but it's a clean break and will need six weeks to repair itself."

To keep himself busy - albeit in a TTC Yamaha Team PR role - Reid attended his old school, Belfast Royal Academy, to chat with pupils and teachers on Tuesday (pictured).

"I really enjoyed going back to see them all and it made me realise how much I enjoyed school, especially my art classes," said the talented Jordanstown racer.

"I'd like to stay with the Team Traction Control Yamaha Team next year and bid to win the British Supersport Championship, but I also need to keep my options open."
