MonsterMob Ducati rider Steve Hislop increased his British Superbike Championship lead by 48 points at a cold and damp Cadwell Park yesterday afternoon.

The 40-year-old Isle of Man based Scot broke the lap record 4 times in 6 laps in race one before going on to record another double win and boost his Championship lead.

Race two was interrupted by rain but in the restart Hizzy led from the start to take victory once again over fellow Ducati rider Michael Rutter. Main championship rival Sean Emmett (Yamaha) recorded fifth in race one and sixth in race two.

"That was fantastic. I was hoping that Sean might struggle a bit. I really wanted to get to grips with the Championship here and hopefully this is the way to the end now," said a delighted Hislop.

MonsterMob team-mate Stuart Easton scored a brilliant second place in the Supersport race, which was also stopped due to the rain and despite suffering machine problems earlier in the day.

The 18-year-old Scot boosted his Championship lead also and now leads by 38 points with 3 rounds remaining.

"I scored some good points today. Its great to get them in the bag. Oulton Park is my favourite circuit so I hope I can get back to my winning ways there," said Easton.

Team owner Paul Bird was delighted with his team's performance. "We got what we came for today. All credit to the team. Now we can look forward to our home circuit at Oulton Park next weekend," added the Penrith businessman.

The next round is at Oulton Park, Cheshire on Saturday 31st August/Sunday 1st September.
