PHIL Crowe and Brayden Elliott took home the spoils in the Pirelli Super Series 1000 class as No Limits hit Cadwell Park.
The local ace bagged two wins from three before being denied a clean sweep as he retired from the final.
In Saturday’s qualifying, Crowe flew to pole by almost 1.5sec at his home track, ahead of reigning champ John Ingram who lined up second and Gary Johnson, who pipped newly-crowned Bemsee Powerbikes champ Mark Bridger to third.
But when the lights went out for race one, Crowe was immediately away and never seen again, pulling out almost two seconds on the very first lap before crossing the line some 11.802sec clear of Elliott, who chased him all the way home with roads man Johnson on his tail in third.
While Elliott grabbed an early lead in race two, Crowe made sure it didn’t last as the BMW rider swept past the Aussie on lap two and dropped the hammer to stretch another comfortable winning gap, this time of 8.8sec, as Johnson got the better of Elliott while Lee Payne just missed out on the final rostrum spot.
And although it looked to be three from three for Crowe in the final race of the weekend as he led Elliott from the off, the hat-trick wasn’t to be and with an eight second lead just three laps from the finish, Crowe retired and left Elliott to victory with Johnson just a second further back and teen Luke Hopkins in a distant third.
