Chrissy Rouse has taken charge of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship battle after a win and a second place at Oulton Park.

The maths teacher now has a 27-point advantage over Tom Neave in the title chase after riding through technical issues to finish second on Saturday before powering to victory on Sunday.

“It’s been an amazing weekend, to have such great results and come away with a large championship lead is just brilliant,” said the geordie.

“On Saturday it turned out we had a problem with the shift cam sensor so I was really happy to get a second place despite such a technical issue.

“To get the win on Sunday was just the perfect ending to what’s been a fantastic weekend. I’d had four seconds on the trot so I was getting a bit fed up of those, so to be back on the top step meant the world.

“Once again, I need to say a huge thank you to Phil and all the Crowe Performance team. From the minute we arrived the bike was brilliant and it was superb all weekend. There’s just three races left this year and we leave here in a really strong position.”
