Sunday 15th May, round six
Sunday’s brisk breeze kept temperatures cool for the final day’s racing. The Pirelli backed GP45 racers formed on the grid back to their original slots, Harrison faced another challenging heat from 26th. Seasoned Metrakit, GP125 and MOTO3 rider Rowan Miller took the reins from Symonds on the NGRRC Kawasaki single.
Harrison once again battled through the field to arrive at the flag 4th on the road and first Super Twin home. Thrower achieved another impressive result in 8th, this time three seconds clear of Andrew on the Single.
Henry Cox was back out on the gofasterbits.co.uk GP45 Super Single making many passes throughout the race to 13th on-the-road, three places behind the leading GP45 Suzuki of Andrew. Gary Moran made better progress this time, getting his Machine Tool Sales Online Suzuki next in line behind Cox. Bridgefoot and Annetts enjoyed a dice with just 0.16 separating them at the flag. Despite a promising opening lap Miller pulled in with a suspected problem.
For the Championship points race the GP45 riders were evenly spread throughout the grid, Harrison and Thrower line astern on rows one and two. A Super Single, or two, on each row from three to six. Early on Harrison settled into 3rd spot overall and successfully defended this position to the flag. Thrower battled hard race-long, exchanging places with his Somerset neighbour and awning companion Henry Cox. Unfortunately Cox crashed out one lap from the end leaving Thrower to collect 9th on-the-road, one place behind the Super Single of Andrew who was enjoying another strong ride, dominating the Super Single class.
Rowan Miller, now sorted on the NGRRC GP45 Single progressed through the field to claim 14th position on-the-road and second Single. Tony Bridgefoot enjoyed his first top three Super Single finish on his GP45 Honda, once again hounded by Paul Annetts to the line. Annetts also collected a win in the Newcomers earlier in the race programme.
A luckless Gary Moran laid it down at the hairpin on the opening lap suffering another DNF.
