Runner-up Jake Dixon says victory is within spitting distance after missing out on the win by just a few hundredths of a second in race two today.

After four consecutive podium finishes, a second and a third each at the past two rounds, the RAF Regular & Reserves Kawasaki rider is itching to bag his first win since June of last year.

But as the series heads to Knockhill in three weeks for the next round, where Dixon took his first win in a clean sweep last season, the Kent man is confident he can make it happen.

“The outright speed is there, but to be able to get by I need a little something more,” he said. “I just need to work on a few areas where I lacked against the others.

“I started off quite strong in the race and I was behind Brad and I thought I had a good rhythm. But I felt as though Glenn and Brad were holding me up, and then they had the coming together and I instantly lost time.

“But as you see in race two and in race one, I have the speed to win it. I’ve come back from two seconds but I just have nothing to pass with.

“If we can work on those areas for Knockhill, I think we’ll be good. A win is definitely coming.”
