The Triumph Triple Challenge blasted into Brands Hatch for the second time this season over the weekend and provided some fantastic racing. Unlike the first trip to the Kent venue for the series back in May, this time there were five riders taking a turn on the top step of the podium.
Lance Carey and Mark Cheetham took double victories back in May, but this time neither had it all their own way, despite being in the hunt for victory over the weekend.
In the Michelin Young Guns, it was Scott Rowbottom, fresh from his double victory at Cadwell Park at the start of the month, who turned in the fastest time in qualifying to take pole position. Josh Wainwright, Reece Rothwell and Carey were all less than a tenth of a second behind him, meaning an epic superpole race was in prospect.
In the TDG Cup, Jack Sim and Mark Cheetham continued their season long battle for class supremacy, being separated by less than two-hundredths of a second after qualifying. Ben Cater was third, just over a tenth of a second in arrears.
In the Superpole race Rothwell got away from the lights to lead but he was demoted into third place on the opening lap by Rothwell and a hard starting Carey. The top three held their positions right up until the last lap, when Rowbottom was able to sneak back past Carey to claim second place.
Jack Sim got the first of two TDG Cup victories after blasting away at the lights to leave Cheetham, Rhalf Lo Turco and Cater to scrap it out behind.
The first main race it was Tim Venables who eventually emerged victorious after an early battle with Rowbottom, who had to retire at the half-way point. Series leader, Mark Cringle took third place in the class, but had a ringside seat for Cheetham and Sim’s scrap for the TDG Cup win right in the closing laps, Cheetham leveling the score with just one race left to run.
In the final race of the weekend Rowbottom put in a superb ride to lead from start to finish. However, behind him there was plenty of action as Tim Venables raced hard to try and take victory away from him as he also battled with a fast starting Sim, who took a clear TDG win from Cheetham and Cater further back in the pack. Lance Carey rounded out the Michelin Young Guns podium for the weekend, showing the same type of form which netted him his race wins earlier in the year.
The series now takes a four week summer break before the riders head to the next round at Oulton Park in Cheshire.
