Jack Sim sealed a perfect weekend for himself in the penultimate round of the Triumph Triple Challenge by taking a clean sweep of pole-position and three point-scoring victories at Snetterton in Norfolk.
The Tunbridge Wells racer claimed pole by two tenths of a second in the sunshine on Saturday afternoon and he immediately took full advantage of his prime starting position to blast away from the line and take his first win of the weekend.
Behind him, Rhalf Lo Turco, Josh Wainwright and Lance Carey battled it out for second place, with Wainwright snatching the place on the last lap of the six-lap thrash. However, both he and Lo Turco were removed from the results for technical infringements, which handed the other two podium places to Tom Fisher and Carey.
In the first of the two main races on Sunday, it was once again a lights-to-flag victory for Sim, but this time it was his TDG Cup rival Mark Cheetham who followed him across the line for second place. Tom Fisher was there to take another win in the Michelin Young Guns category, setting the fastest lap in the process. Wainwright claim third position in the class, while Lo Turco took the final TDG Cup place.
In the final race of the weekend Sim eventually took the chequered flag by just under five seconds from Wainwright, but he was made to work hard for his third win in the early part of the race.
Mark Cheetham put Jack under pressure in the opening laps and even took the lead on lap four. However, his race ended early and it left Sim in a commanding position at the front as the rest of the field battled behind him.
Michelin Young Guns title chargers Wainwright and Mark Cringle crossed the line in second and third places, a one-two in class and were again separated by less than a second, these two both committed to giving everything in the run up to the season finale and that all important TTC crown.
However, behind them there was a fantastic five rider finish between Tim Venables, Lance Carey, Tom Fisher, Ben Cater and Scott Rowbottom. Venables took fourth place in the class on the road, but it was incredibly close as all five crossed the line less than half a second apart. Cater’s seventh on the track gave him second place in the TDG Cup honours, with Lo Turco again claming the last podium place.
