Sean Emmett won the two Superbike Grand National races from Castle Combe Sunday aboard his last seasons ETI Ducati.

It was a jubilant Emmett who crossed the line in the second race of the end of season feature race, as he had showed the type of form he is capable of. Not only that but in winning the two races he scooped the ?15,000 prize money.

By the time the Premier class came to the line for their first race of the day, the clouds had come and it had become dull.

Mother Nature was kind enough but as the 15 lapper got under way, HM Honda's Karl Harris fluffed the start and left himself a mountain to climb.

Tommy Hill led the charge on the Virgin Mobile Yamaha but his machine mysteriously shed its chain on lap two handing the initiative to HM Honda's Michael Rutter.

Rutter looked invincible for three laps but a very determined Sean Emmett out for the first time on Alastair Flanagan's ETI Ducati, marched past him in imperious fashion.

Once ahead, apart from a brief challenge from the Honda mounted Rutter, the race was Emmett's.

Young Jon Kirkham had a sensational ride on the Rizla Suzuki and only lost third place to Karl Harris with two laps remaining.

In the second race Karl Harris had a point to prove this time out but first he had to get the new Fireblade off the line.

His tactics were to drop the clutch slowly and then play catch-up.

It was Michael Rutter who got the drop and lead the charge with Tommy Hill on the Virgin Mobile Yamaha in his wheel-tracks.

Sean Emmett was in the thick of it and made his intentions clear with a typical "head down" approach as he set after the HM Plant Honda.

At half-distance Emmett went ahead, after taking Rutter and then Hill.

Karl Harris was by now up to sixth and closing on his young Japanese team-mate Ryuichi Kiyonari.

Harris's Honda was just as fast as the two factory HM Plant bikes and looked every inch a race winner for the future as he carved his way past Kiyonari and into fourth.

"I'm really pleased with the way that this weekend has gone, it's just a shame that I've struggled with my starts," commented Harris after the second race. "If I can get off the line quicker, I know that I can be a real threat in the Superbike class. I'm definitely as fast as the rest of the riders and bikes out there, so with more practice who knows what could happen?"

Tommy Hill garnished a wonderful debut year in BSB with a third place rostrum finish for Virgin Mobile Yamaha but it was Emmett who took the double victory.

"I'm really pleased for the ETI team," said Emmett. "They have worked hard all year and like me, have not too much to show for it."
