Five-time BSB Champion Shane Byrne has looked well-placed to take the victory, only to go wide with two laps remaining and drop four places that he was unable to take back.

The season will conclude at Brands Hatch in a fortnight’s time, with Leon Haslam currently topping the standings.

Josh Brookes and Shane Byrne will hope to leapfrog the Speedfit Kawaskai rider and take the title.
