Cadwell Park: Haslam keeps up Cadwell run.

Blaming excessive chatter for his lack of competitiveness, Crutchlow resisted the attentions of Shane Byrne for several laps before falling behind him at just over the half way point. Leon Camier promptly followed through, although Crutchlow was able to resist the advances of Michael Rutter to the chequered flag for fifth place.

Rutter did run as high as third in the early stages but sixth place still means he moves up to the same position in the overall standings at the expense of the absent James Ellison.

Some distance back, Simon Andrews finished in seventh after a rather lonely race, ahead of Michel Laverty and Atsushi Watanabe, the Japanese rider securing a much needed top ten finish.

Just behind, Gary Mason made the most of his strong starting position to secure a top ten finish in tenth. Also winning the Daily Star Cup race, the Quay Garage Honda rider was some four places up the road on nearest rival John Laverty.

Meanwhile, although it was a race that was unusually devoid of entertainment, there was one disappointing constant after Karl Harris experienced a fall on lap four. Injuring his finger in the process, he is expected to make the start line for the second race.
