ROUND two of the National Classic Motorcycle Racing Championship saw Ingleton rider Harley Rushton extend his lead in the standings on May Bank Holiday with four race victories.

The races were held down in South Wales at the Pembrey circuit under blue skies and great conditions for racing.

Rushton, 24, took the 1972 350cc Craven Honda Twin Cylinder to four wins from four starts in his class, breaking his own lap record set only the year before.

He had some hard fought races along the way with battles for the lead contested between five people.

Rushton had to get the better of Isle of Man TT racer Dominic Herbertson to take victory in his class, but managed to with some impressive overtakes.

This took Rushton further ahead in his championship campaign, which has given him further confidence for the rest of the season:

"This was a great weekend aboard the 350 Craven Honda, the races were fiercely competitive and any one out of us top five riders could have taken the victory," said Rushton. "I am pleased to come away with the four race wins, another new lap record and to continue leading the championship.

"I had some good races on the Craven Manx 500cc also, in the final race of the weekend I finished third and showed that me and the bike has potential front running pace.

"I go into the next races at Cadwell Park on Saturday and Sunday with two good bikes so I hope for further good results."
