Chatburn quad racer Ayrton Knowles hit top form in the heat of the summer sun at Duns Moto Park in the Scottish Borders on Sunday.

He had to work hard in race one after a first turn tangle with two other riders left him at the back of the pack, but he finally pulled through to finish fourth .

Race two saw Ayrton hit the front from the first corner, keeping perfect lines for the duration of the 10 minute, one-lap race to win by 20 seconds.

In race three, Ayrton slotted into second place and began to put the pressure on the leader.

He hit the table top jump and took the lead, settling into a smooth rhythm on the way to victory.

Ayrton now leads the NETT Championship by 10 points with the next round at Wooley Grange, County Durham later this month.

He is also second in the Scottish Championship ahead of the sixth round, back in Duns next week.
