Juan Kinnish wrapped up the Ducati Monster S4 Challenge in style at Oulton Park by setting a blistering pace to take both the race win, and more importantly, the championship title.

Kinnish, who qualified on pole position and had scored maximum points at every round, repeated his success by getting a great start, then holding off the competition for a lights to flag victory.

" I knew I had to keep my head down this weekend. The championship title was within reach, but it's all to easy to throw it away", commented Kinnish. " I am over the moon with the championship win. I didn't sign up for the championship until the last minute, and without the help of friend and sponsor Des Collins I wouldn't have been here at all."

Kinnish, also a competitor in the British Supersport championship, has enjoyed a win at every round but one of the Monster Challenge, where at Thruxton non points scoring guest rider Doug Cowie just pipped him at the flag.

Completing the podium in the penultimate round was Mark Cheetham from Bolton in second position, who could only chase the Manxman, as he looked to increase his points in the championship.

Gary Bryne was delighted to take his second third place finish in as many races, and is currenty in third place in the championship standings before the final round at Donington Park on September 29th.
