The superstock race was superb and it was brilliant to see Jimmy Hill on the Map Triumph take the win. Damn shame the John Simpson was disqualified, but such a great race.
With the full on British Supersport race, there were no less than SIX 675's finished in the points. With Glen Richards unfortunately high siding in the earlier superstock race and possible breaking three ribs, he was unable to start the superport race, so Youngy was starting 3rd and his teammate Jason O'Halloran was moved up on to the front row next to him.
Youngy got off to an absolute flyer at the start and took the lead in to turn 1. There he remained for the first 11 laps which was just awesome to see, but then he fell back as 19 year old Sam Lowes took to the front and stormed off to a great lead before ther red flag came out. The Triumphs ended as follows:
4th - Jason O'Halloran - Oxford TAG Triumph
6th - Dan Cooper - MAP Centurion Triumph Racing
7th - Paul Young - Oxford TAG Triumph
10th - Allan Jon Venter - MAP Centurion Triumph Racing
13th - Luke Mossey - LM Racing
15th - David Jones - Clwyd Heating Racing
David was also first in the Supersport Cup element so many congratulations to him. He unfortunately missed out on the fastest lap of the race in the cup by one 1,000th of a second!
Here are a few photos from today.

AJ Venter looking like he has already worn the arse out of his leathers and this is round 1!
Not sure if Dan Cooper got dressed in the dark this morning. Check those boots out!

Youngy off to a flyer and showing the youngsters the way. In almost no time he had created this lead
which I am guessing was around 1.2 seconds! lol

Before Sam Lowes does them all and clears off at the front. Brilliant maiden victory for him and he is a great lad. Need him on a Triumph next year! lol
