Saturdays Qualifying was again cold but dry conditions Brandon took pole position on his final Lap with Jamie taking a solid 10th place.

 

Race 1 Brandon unfortunately made a mistake off the start leaving him in 8th position into turn one. End of lap 1 Brandon was in seventh place, Lap 2 fourth place, then moved into second position on lap 4, unfortunately Dan Jones with a clear track had managed to pull a 5 second gap, Brandon ( as agreed with the Team prior to the start of the race ) settled for second place to consolidate his lead in the championship, controlled the position by good use of his pit signals.

Jamie did not get the start he really wanted but put in some consistently improving lap times as he continued to learn the circuit securing a solid 10th position

The Weather in race two was changeable, with a small rain shower while the bikes were waiting on the grid, luckily the rain just held off for the race with the bikes going out on full slicks.

 

Brandon got a much better start, 5th into turn one and 4th by turn three. Lap 6 Brandon took the lead and started to pull a slight gap when unfortunately Jones and Swann went down on lap 7 forcing the safety car to come out for 2 laps as the bikes and riders were moved to a safe position. From there Brandon again controlled the race using his pit signals finishing 2 seconds in front of Nixon and Rodriguez

 

 

Jamie had a good start from 11th on the grid into 8th by turn two. He then had a race long duel with Former FPW racing data engineer Jerry Van de Bunt who beat Jamie to the line 0.05 of a second leaving Jamie in his best finish this year so far of 7th position
