Monster Mob rider Stuart Easton blew away the Supersport competition today at Thruxton, as he put his Ducati 748 over 0.4secs clear of factory Honda rider Karl Harris.

The 18 year old is eager to prove those who had doubted his ability after the previous round, where he retired with machine problems, wrong in tomorrows 20 lap event.

"People doubted me after last week and I hope this silences them" said Easton. "I plan on ramming home that advantage in tomorrow's race and get a grip on this series."
