Hill battles to victory over Kiyonari, Byrne

His win and second place finish – identical results to that of last year – means Hill heads to the next round at Oulton Park with a four point advantage in the standings, ahead of Byrne, who would settle for third on this occasion.

Laverty was a distant fourth on the second Swan Yamaha, well up on John Hopkins, who made amends for his failure to score in race one with a solid run to fifth. Stuart Easton finished in sixth position, ahead of Michael Rutter, Dan Linfoot, Peter Hickman and Gary Mason.

Having just missed out on victory in race one, Alex Lowes took EVO honours over Glen Richards this time, the WFR Honda duo finishing 12th and 14th.

Elsewhere, there was disappointment for Jon Kirkham, who suffered problems on the warm-up lap, and race one podium winner Tommy Bridewell, the Tyco Honda rider crashing out from seventh.

Josh Brookes failed to start as a legacy of his race one crash.

At the end if the second lap hopper was 2 seconds behind shaky at the end he was 10 behind hill. Maybe next race we will se how good he is but in all fairness he got owned by hill Byrne laverty and kiyo, all of whom have been slated at 1 point if another by rawdawg. That is 1 of the know all yanks to name a few. Tommy hill was rider of weekend. Doggie elbow. Coming from 13th to second. And winning. Defiantly passed more riders than hopper.

How is it that John Hopkins didn't win? According to some on here BSB was beneath Hopkins and that he'd show the BSB boys what real talent is. "He should be in MotoGP full time" they said, yet he was comprehensively beat by Shakey, who, according to those same peolple could only win on a V-twin. What's going on? Can anyone explain?
