Cal Crutchlow secured his maiden win in the British Supersport Championship with an impressive display at Cadwell Park - the 19-year-old completing a clean sweep of race win, pole position and fastest lap on board his Northpoint Racing Honda.

Mastering the technical Cadwell circuit with ease, Crutchlow found himself inside the top three in every timed session, while team-mate Craig Jones also enjoyed a good weekend as he took fourth place to keep his title hopes very much alive.

The only low-point from the weekend for Crutchlow was his race start, as he dropped from pole position to fifth by the time the riders entered the first corner, with Jones settling into third - the same position he had held on the grid. However an incident on the entry to the chicane saw the race red-flagged with the riders lining up on the grid for a restart.

With a 15-minute delay and a twelve-lap restart announced, the riders rejoined the grid, with Crutchlow making a better start to slot into third place, just ahead of Jones. From there it didn't take Crutchlow long to make his way to the front of the field as he took the lead from Stuart Easton on lap four to secure a win that lifts him to third in the championship standings.

"Obviously that's my first British Supersport win and it's a great feeling which I don't think has thoroughly sunk in just yet," he said. "I had to make sure that I stayed focussed and kept riding smoothly. I had a great weekend and everything thankfully seemed to work in my favour. I'd like to thank the whole team and all our sponsors for all their hard work and support I've finally been rewarded with a win. I'm hoping that I can continue to get some good results at the remaining rounds."

Behind his team-mate, Jones was embroiled in a five way battle with Leon Camier, Pere Riba, Simon Andrews and Stuart Easton which saw the riders swapping positions as Crutchlow build a lead out front.

Although Easton was taken out of the equation when he retired on nine, Jones was unable to break onto the podium - losing out to Camier by just 0.01secs on the drag to the line as Andrews took second.

"I would have liked to have been a little higher up the table today to try and narrow the gap on the Championship lead but I've had a good consistent finish and that's what I needed," Jones said afterwards. "It's certainly going to be a chase right to the end and it will be whoever can remain consistent who will eventually win the overall title."

Team manager Gary Ekerold was understandably delighted to see his rider claim a maiden win, and said he was still confident of seeing Jones battle for the title over the three remaining rounds.

"It's been a fantastic team effort especially from Pete and Paul who have worked extremely hard throughout the year to achieve the win that we got today," he said. "This is our second season with Cal he certainly pulled out all the stops this weekend and made a fantastic effort. It would have been nice for Craig to be higher up but the championship is still not lost and with three rounds remaining anything could still happen."
