BROOKES BAGS OULTON WIN
Josh Brookes overcomes his round one blues to take the win in race one at Oulton Park.
Brookes bolted from the line to instantly take the lead going into turn one and was never challenged since. Fellow Ducati rider, Tommy Bridewell, slotted in behind the Australian in second ahead of O’Halloran, Iddon, Buchan and Redding. However, a hopeful looking race for Christian Iddon quickly disappeared as he found himself dropping through the pack before retiring to pit lane to finish the race with zero points.
With Brookes out front and Bridewell doing his best to keep him honest, it left a battle for the final podium position. Britain’s Danny Buchan managed to grab third place and hold of McAms Yamaha rider, Jason O’Halloran, to complete the podium. Scott Redding completed his debut on the Oulton circuit in fifth after a defensive last couple of laps to hold off Peter Hickman, rounding out the top five.
