Jason O’Halloran – had a sensational weekend standing atop the dais on race one and two, and a 4th in race three to top off a great weekend at Oulton Park, sitting 2nd in the Superbike championship and only 2 points off the lead.
Josh Brookes – improved over the weekend scoring an 8th and a 4th before taking the top step on the podium in race three, to sit in 3rd in the champion 8 points behind O’Halloran.

Sam Masters – continuing to perform well in Poland with another team win.
Rohan Tungate – again in the points for his team with some vital points.
Jye Etheridge – year just got bigger announcing his engagement to Lucy Hepburn. Congratulations to you both.
Jack Holder – continues to impress in Poland. Sportowefakty describing the young talent as someone who “does not stop and continues to record excellent results. One cannot get a different impression that in a sense it was Holder who “set” this year’s extra-league competition. Without his good attitude, Steel would not be in the top four.”
“The Australian also won a very important race 14, in which he fought elbows with his older brother Chris Holder.”
Chris Holder – Didn’t have the perfect night but managed to score some vitals points and will no doubt be looking to beat younger brother Jack when they meet again.
