The wet weather at Croft didn't put a damper on Pete Spalding or Brendan Roberts' weekend as they both took their respective championship titles.

Australian Roberts won the Metzeler National Superstock championship and he did it in style taking pole position, setting the fastest lap and also winning the race. Whilst Spalding sealed the Supersport Cup Championship by taking his ninth Cup win of the season from nine races, this also sees him in fourth position overall in the Supersport Championship.

Both young riders had treacherous race conditions to deal with but it didn't deter either of them. Roberts battled with the varied weather conditions throughout the weekend but still topped the time sheets in every session.

With a huge 76-point lead going into Croft Roberts only needed a strong finish to take the title, but he wanted another race win which he achieved by making a strong pass on Steve Brogan who lead for the bulk of the race.

A delighted Roberts commented, "What a weekend, I surprised myself during practice and qualifying with the times I managed. I feel riding in the European Superstock class which is an even tougher series has helped me out one hundred percent and its starting to show. To get me to where I am now I couldn't have done it without the support of my family and friends. A big thanks has to go to Jonny and Chris from Moto-Direct for taking an interest in my career and Niall Mackenzie for his advice and friendship since I've been in the UK," he concluded.

With the British championship wrapped up Roberts can now concentrate on the remainder of the European Superstock championship where he rides with the HP Racing team.

Spalding also had bad weather to contend with and a red flag due to a first corner pile-up
The race underwent a full restart and Spalding got off the line in seventh. The youngster once again proved his worth in the tricky climate conditions while usual front runners, Crutchlow, Laverty and Vincent all succumbed to the weather and crashed out of the race.

He had a huge fight on his hands with current Supersport Champion Leon Camier, as Spalding had got a chance of stepping onto the main Supersport podium as opposed to the Supersport Cup podium. A last lap, last corner move nearly proved ecstatic and fatal for the youngster, fighting his way past Camier, he got on the gas a little early and nearly high-sided out of the race. Thankfully he held onto his Honda and kept his Cup race win and gained an amazing fourth place.

A delighted Spalding said, "It's been an amazing year and now I have sealed the Championship I can relax a little more and just get on with the racing and not have to think about the results at the final rounds. The whole Centurion Team have worked exceptionally hard all weekend and all year and they deserve this title more than anyone, I would like to thank everyone for all their continued support and help. The race was fantastic and it was a great feeling battling for a Championship podium with Leon. I just hope things continue to get better and better for the remainder of this season and for next year."
