Chalk Kawasaki’s Tom Neave eased to an impressive debut Pirelli National Superstock 600 win by over six and a half seconds, and he was joined on the podium by twin brother Tim.

Poleman Brad Jones took the holeshot in what was a controversial start. It appeared that every man on the front two rows jumped the start after being held at the line for longer than usual, but it was later deemed that since nobody took advantage of jumping the start, no penalties were handed out.

Appleyard Macadam’s Jones was quickly passed for the lead by Neave on the first lap and he wasn’t to be seen again. Getting to within two tenths of Taz Mackenzie’s long standing lap record, he eased to an eight second lead.

Eventually backing off and easing to the chequered flag, his brother then coming across the line six and half seconds back.

The cheeky twins were joined on the podium by run away championship leader Dan Stamper, who benefited from Ryan Vickers crashing out on the last lap whilst battling for second.

Jones came through in fourth, ahead of Knockhill race winner Jordan Gilbert on his Mission Racing Yamaha.

George Stanley took a lonely sixth place, before Bradley Perie topped a great battle for seventh place, getting the better of Ben Luxton, Joe Sheldon-Shaw and Aaron Clarke.
