Matt Winstanley continued his dominance in the British Supermoto Championship round at Rowrah by winning all three races.

The SM1 and SM2 champion made a clean sweep at the weekend with the two classes combined. This move proved a success with some exciting riding for the spectators.

Winstanley took overall pole in front of his nearest rival from the SM2’s, Chris Hodgson and Lee Jones. He was briefly challenged for the lead in race one but led from start to finish for the last two.

Ricky Higgs mirrored Winstanley’s performance in the SM2 category with three wins and the overall lead from the meeting in Cumbria. Higgs managed to outperform many of the SM1 riders and finished each overall race in second spot.

However maximum points for overall display took Cornish to the SM4 title.
