Cash-strapped Dickies British Supersport star Rory Skinner had thought the Assen round would be his last of 2019 but after a season-best performance, backers have been found to finish the year,

Skinner, who won the 2018 British Talent Cup and was rewarded with nothing for his efforts, took fourth in class in race one on Saturday and then repeated the feat in race two yesterday on ther Chris Walker-supplied Kawasaki.

“I’ve been blown away by the support. After Oulton Park we needed to refresh the engine and that meant that our 2019 was budget gone,” said Skinner.

“As soon as it became known that we were struggling to make the last two rounds, we received an offer to support us with our tyres for the final rounds, which is our single biggest expense, while two other individuals have made a contribution that will cover our fuel costs.

“I am so grateful to those people, as well as all the others who have helped to get us on track this year, and I will be doing everything I can to reward their faith in me with the best results we can manage.”
