Karl Harris has moved into the top ten of the overall standings for the first time this season after recording just his third double points finish of the year at Croft.

The Rob Mac Racing rider has been embarking on the comeback trail in what has been a bruising season, but Harris kept his bike pointing in the right direction at Croft to record a brace of eighth place finishes.

However, Harris was not pleased with the results, adding that he wasn't entirely sure why he seemed to lack pace over the weekend.

"Well that's not the best weekend we've had and I couldn't pinpoint a definite reason for it. I seemed to lose pace in the last sector of the lap, I felt really strong on the first two thirds of the lap but just felt not so strong on the last sector.

"I couldn't seem to make progress from where I was, it is such a hot pace out there anyway. I really enjoy both Silverstone and Brands so I hope for a strong finish to the season with four races to go."

Team principal Rob McElnea, meanwhile, was also disappointed with the Superbike results, even if it couldn't bring him down from the high of becoming a father again.

"It's a mixed weekend of emotions for me, we've not had the results that we expect from the Superbike this weekend. We've got four races to go to prove our capabilities so the pressure is on. Susan gave birth to our son, Harrison Robert on Thursday night so it's been an amazing high for us in that respect and I'm definitely the proud father again!"
