Victory boost for Brookes, Bridewell makes Showdown

Easton, who has been under pressure to improve his results following a dip in form, showed flashes of his best as he diced with Westmoreland and Lowes. With Lowes's hasty pass into the Melbourne Hairpin only having the effect of running himself wide, Easton held on for fourth, ahead of Westmoreland and Lowes.

Crucially, in terms of the fight for the two remaining Title Showdown places, Bridewell's quiet run to ninth, behind Jon Kirkham and Chris Walker, coupled to Haga and Ian Lowry's non-score – the latter having crashed prior to the red flag - has confirmed his entry to the shootout.

Lowes, meanwhile, can still mathematically be beaten by Lowry, Westmoreland and Haga, but he carries a comfortable 16, 20 and 22 point advantage over all three with just one race remaining.

Elsewhere in the results, Barry Burrell completed a fine top ten finish for Buildbase BMW, ahead of Luca Scassa, Patric Muff, Danny Buchan, Luke Quigley and Robbin Harms, the Dane picking up his first BSB point for Doodson Honda.
