Brands BSB: Neary doubles but Morris is crowned Ducati TriOptions champion

Sean Neary completed a final round Ducati TriOptions Cup winning double but the title went the way of Leon Morris who twice ran second, enough to ease him clear of Rob Guiver who had started the weekend leading the title stakes, but then struggled in the decisive races.

Louis Dawson had the edge over Atkinson by half a second after the opening lap of the first of the two races ahead of Neary, Morris, Middlemas, Cheetham, Railton and Guiver but it was soon all change. Neary charged into the lead after two laps  but Guiver was having worries, dropping back into tenth place.

Atkinson was riding hard but Neary had the edge at the front. Cheetham came through into third place ahead of Middlemas though that was soon reversed and on the fifth lap the pack was re-shuffled. Middlemas had the lead from Morris, Atkinson, Cheetham and Neary, though with less than a second between them.


Middlemas upped the pace with race’s fastest lap to pull clear, but not for long before Neary grabbed the initiative on the penultimate lap en route to taking the victory by 0.730secs over Morris who grabbed second place from Middlemas.  Atkinson was fourth from Cheetham, with Guiver back in twelfth.

Guiver had another uphill struggle on his hands in the second race running back in ninth place while out front Neary led the race from Morris and Brown with Atkinson running fourth while Middlemas strayed off line to drop back to sixth. It was close at the front, with Neary only 0.380secs clear of Morris at half distance, though they had gapped third placed Brown by over two seconds.  Guiver was ninth but building.

Neary somehow held on as he bike snaked out of line, holding his lead over Morris while Guiver had picked up a couple of places to be seventh in vain challenge for the title.  That went the way of Morris who took a solid second, two seconds adrift of Neary.  Brown ran third ahead of Atkinson and Railton.
