JAMIE Kelman bagged his second clean sweep on the bounce in Bemsee’s Team Green Senior 300 series this weekend with four class and overall wins at Cadwell Park.
The Fastlane Motorcycles rider, who headed to the Lincolnshire circuit with over 100 points to play with over closest Senior contender Kai Dickinson, beat Junior class clean sweeper Harry Fowle to every outright victory by at least 1.3s.
But the Team ELP/A. Fowle Joinery rider wasn’t part of the title chase, meaning Owen Jenner’s three seconds gave him a bigger gap over Junior series rival James Dutton.
Fowle started the opening race from pole, but couldn’t prevent Kelman from taking an early lead, which he extended to over a second in two laps. It hovered around the second mark until the closing stages, but with Fowle never able to bridge the gap.
In the final two laps Fowle gave up the chase and settled for a comfortable second place, with Kelman the victor.
Yoshihara Racing’s Dickinson took third as the second Senior finisher, narrowly holding off Nicky Wilson who completed the Senior 300 podium, while Jenner and Dutton finished sixth and seventh overall.
In race two Kelman took an even more commanding win, disappearing into the distance on lap one, going on to win by nearly seven seconds. The fight for second, however, was a far closer affair.
Dickinson held the position for much of the race, but Fowle and Ducati Alton/Carbon Conquest man Wilson were in hot pursuit. Starting the last lap there was nothing between them, but it was Dickinson who still held the advantage.
Unfortunately for him he was passed by the pair of them, with Fowle taking second and the Junior Cup win, and Wilson third overall, second in the Senior class.
It was fifth and sixth for Jenner and Dutton, again second and third in the Junior class, with Jenner extending his series lead by another four points.
Sunday’s action brought two more wins for Kelman as he once again took off at the front in the first of the day’s races. The fastest lap time for Fowle on the last lap meant he closed right in on the leader, but it wasn’t close enough to snatch the win.
Fowle took the Junior win and would start race four from pole, with Wilson third, leading a five-rider fight for the final podium spot. In that fight was Jenner and Dutton, the pair fifth and sixth overall.
It was four from four for Kelman in the final race as Fowle took his fourth second placed finish and fourth Junior class win. Wilson took another third, as Jenner beat Dutton for the fourth time to extend his championship lead to 39 points in the Junior class.
