After another podium for Five gloves pilot James Ellison and the JG Speedfit Kawasaki team, they left Oulton Park leading the British Superbike Championship standings.
Ellison said: “We started on the second row so I had to fight my way through the others and with nobody making any mistakes it was really hard to do something. Tommy [Bridewell] went down and then with the collision with Kiyo and Shakey, I felt comfortable behind them but we weren’t fast enough just to make a move because nobody was really any slower than anyone else, it was just a game of cat and mouse.
“It was a really tough race but hopefully exciting to watch for the fans and Stuart (Easton) rode a great race. I was waiting for him to do something silly but he never did, he went tight on the last corner which is where I was planning/hoping he would and I had in my mind that I was going to make a move on the outside but there was just not enough grip.”
Five and Gaerne pilot Billy Mcconnell had two solid top ten finishes.
