The weekend saw consistently warm weather and dry track conditions as the Tysers Yamaha duo immediately made their mark in practice, getting their YZF-R6 machines dialled in as Brad went fastest in Free Practice 1 from Rory. Interestingly, Rory was 0.9 quicker in FP2 than second place Lee Johnson but come the all-important final Qualifying Rory took pole position from Brad, 0.28 faster.
Saturday’s race was held over 12 laps and the Tysers duo again made the jump on the rest of the pack. Unlike the previous six races, Rory was unable to break away and was kept under pressure from a gaggle of riders throughout, with Brad moving into the lead on lap five. Rory fought back and an exciting battle ensued, as the pair swapped the lead throughout the race. Despite a concerted attack by Rory on the final lap, Brad was able to take his first win of the season just 0.055 in front of his young teammate. Brad also took the fastest lap with a 1.38.312 circulation.
