Chatburn quad racer Ayrton Knowles goes into the summer break knowing he has only two Nationals remaining, but holds a slim points advantage in second place.

The two remaining venues both favour Ayrton’s smooth, strong riding style, and with his first first overall win of the series at the last round, he is confident he will increase the gap over third place .

This weekend was the fifth round of the Northern Championship at Duns mx , with the track in perfect condition after some overnight rain.

Ayrton had to win to keep his chances alive for the 250 mod Championship, and in race one he finished second behind 250 open class leader Whyte, before finishing third in a similar race in race two - importantly as first 250 mod.

In race three, second place was enough for the top step.

Ayrton said: “As usual the fantastic help of all my sponsors makes it possible for me to keep winning races.”

Ayrton will now be working on the set up of the 2015 JB racing 250 Honda ready for his European debut at the Youth PDV race in France.
