Sykes claims wild-card win at Brands Hatch

Having begun the first start down in 20th, Tommy Hill put in a good fight back to finish in sixth position, the Suzuki rider benefiting from Brookes's failure to finish to bring him level on points at the top of the standings again.

Stuart Easton went some way to ending his dismal run of luck with his ride to seventh, ahead of Yukio Kagayama, Dan Linfoot – who was running as high as fifth prior to the red flag – and Gary Mason.

Steve Brogan, meanwhile, claimed Evo glory in 14th overall, but only after his drive-through penalty was negated by the red flag that placed him at the back of the grid and thus in contention.

"Somehow I think they will re-sign Tom for next year." Tom himself didn't sound too optimistic in the pre-race interview with T.Carter though. He mentioned Vermuelen's 2-year deal and said that Lascorz was being touted for the second ride, and ended up by saying something like 'hopefully I'll find something for next year'. I think he'll be ok if they run a 3-man team, but if not I think Kawasaki Japan might favour Lascorz (who's apparently hurt more seriously than initial reports suggested).
