Round 5: Knockhill, Fife July 6-8 Qualifying: 3rd – 47.342s
Race one: 2nd – +1.917s
Race two: 1st – 23m 57.841s

“I’m happy with the result in both races this weekend. We had a few problems in race one with some back-shift issues, which I believe cost us the win. We were still struggling a bit in race two but it was a really good battle so I’m really pleased to have taken another win.

“The team did a great job all weekend once again, we’ve extended our lead in the championship and I can’t wait to get to Brands Hatch.”I’m heading straight to Suzuka in Japan now for testing before the main Suzuka race at the end of July. Thanks to everyone for all the support this weekend here at Knockhill!”
