Following their success at Snetterton last time out, Market Rasen riders Tim and Tom Neave head south to Thruxton to continue their championship challenge this weekend.

Last time out Tom scored his best-ever result in the Superstock 600 championship. After a blinding start he battled his way through to secure a well-deserved sixth place.

Huis twin brother Tim also got a great start and stuck with the mid-pack throughout with some great battling, ending the race up in 16th place.

Tom said: “It was a great weekend for us, we both felt very comfortable on the bikes throughout and this has been a good stepping stone for greater results in the second half of the season!

“Thanks to Billy and dad for their help on the spanners, and to Terry Rymer for his wise words. It’s always good to have Jon from Lincolnshire Motors/New Holland showing his support.

“Now we have two weeks off to prepare and work to get the funds together for round six at Thruxton, a new track we both can’t wait to ride.”

The weekend begins with a free practice session at 9am on Friday followed by first qualifying at 1.15pm.

Final qualifying is at 12.15pm on Saturday, and instead of a morning warm-up on Sunday, the riders will have a further free practice at 5.55pm. The 14-lap race is scheduled for 12.35pm on Sunday.
