Stuart Easton made it a triple celebration for Paul Bird Motorsport at Brands Hatch after three solid results saw him secure the BSB Riders' Cup for the highest non-Showdown rider.

The Scot, who returned to the PBM fold in 2014 after winning the 2013 British Supersport Championship, has endured a season of mixed fortunes on the Kawasaki ZX-10R, but a run of good finishes in the final three rounds would keep him clear in the fight for seventh.

Coming on the day team-mate Shane Byrne wrapped up the BSB riders' championship and Kawasaki sealed another manufacturers' title, Easton was pleased to contribute to PBM's crowning day.

"It's been a strong end to the season for me and the last three or four rounds have been really pleasing and the results have been more in line with what I want," said Easton, who finished sixth, fifth and fourth in the three Brands Hatch races.

"Saturday's race was really tricky as conditions were difficult so to come away with a top six finish set things up for Sunday. We made a few changes to the bike for the dry conditions and they made a big difference, making the grip loads better and I could run the pace of the top boys throughout.

"To end the season with fourth, fifth and sixth was really good and had it not been for a few poor rounds mid-season, things could have been different. As it is, I've ended the year in seventh place overall and with the MCE BSB Rider's Cup on the cabinet so I'll take it.

"There are a lot of positives to take out of the year and enable me to move forward again so I'll be taking that all on board and look for bigger and better things in 2015."

I've always thought Easton is much more suited to the Supersport category.
He has always been a consistent race (& championship) winner there but his superbike record is not particularly impressive.
