Elliott Pinson grabbed his fourth win in a row at Thruxton to help claw back some vital Dickies British Junior Supersport points.

But the youngster was denied the chance to make it five in succession after the final race of the day was axed following long delays during the British Superbike action.

Starting Saturday’s race from pole, the SymCirrus Motorsport rider led off the line before getting passed by Owen Jenner but was quick to move back ahead.

However, it was Adon Davie who led over the line at the end of the first lap, as Pinson and Jenner dropped back to fourth and fifth respectively, if only for two laps.

By the time the pack came around to finish lap four, Pinson was back in the lead with Jenner back behind him and from there the race was Pinson’s as he kept control and extended his lead, eventually crossing the line 4.131s ahead of Verwey as Jenner took third.

Verwey remains in control of the championship on 180 points, with Trystan Finocchiaro second on 143. Pinson is now third on 133.
