MonsterMob Ducati rider Sean Emmett left a soggy Knockhill in Scotland with a rostrum after a difficult day's racing in round eight of the THINK! British Superbike Championship yesterday.

With both qualifying as well as the racing interrupted by torrential rain showers, Superbike rider Emmett managed to qualify sixth amongst the hail storms of Saturday.

In the opening Superbike race Emmett crashed out when another rider fell in front of him and he had to take avoiding action but he bounced back in race two with a superb second place after being denied the race win due to tangling with back markers.

"I'm just disappointed, it's been a bad day in the office. I got knocked off in the first race and I had the perfect combination of tyres on - the same as Scott Smart who won," said the london based rider. "In the second race I worked my way from a mediocre start and caught James Haydon very quickly with three laps to go and just got my worst run of back markers I have ever had. But that's the way it goes."

Emmett now lies fourth in the championship going into the next round of the British Superbikes which will be held at Mallory Park in two weeks time (17-18 July).
