Linfoot, who did not qualify for the showdown, has won two of the last three races and might have had a hat-trick but for a mechanical issue in race one on Sunday.

Despite being pipped for victory, Haslam's second place saw him strengthen his position at the top of the points standings.

He leads by 22 points from Josh Brookes, with Byrne slipping back to third overall.
