Milwaukee Yamaha's James Ellison remains confident of a strong challenge for the MCE British Superbike title after sealing his second victory of the season at Oulton Park.

Ellison won the opening race on Saturday from Shane Byrne and finished fourth in race three yesterday, although he admitted his 'disappointment' after sliding out of the second race while battling with Alex Lowes for second place.

Ellison ran wide onto the grass following a pass by Samsung Honda's Alex Lowes at Island and crashed out of the race.

"I am disappointed with the crash in race two, but feel I rode really strongly and I have to look at the positives in that," he said.

"We had a win and a fourth place this weekend so we still kept fourth in the overall standings with two race weekends left before the Showdown.

"The team gave me a really good bike again this weekend and I enjoyed every session and lap of the race on the Milwaukee Yamaha.

"We proved again we can run at the front and am confident we will be in the title fight."

Ellison's position in the top-six Showdown is assured following round seven at Oulton and he remains in fourth position overall in the championship.
