LEE Williams stamped his authority on his home turf at Oulton Park this weekend as he scooped the top prize with a Pirelli Super Series 1000 clean sweep.
The Hi-Tech Coatings rider bagged both wins and went home with a cool £1000 after beating series leader James Edwards and title challenger David Hall to victory, but it’s now Edwards who leads the points after early season front-runner John Ingram was off on Isle of Man TT duties.
After qualifying on pole, Williams grabbed an immediate lead at the start of race one to chalk up a 1.7sec lead after the very first lap, while Edwards and Lee Payne.
And while the former Thundersport champ maintained his three second lead, Hall was on the move and up to second with three laps to go, holding on to take second at the chequered flag while Payne bagged a lone third.
But it was all change in race two as DK Motorcycles’ Payne grabbed the lead ahead of Edwards while Williams fell a couple of seconds adrift into third.
Payne’s advantage was cut down by lap three, however, and by lap four Williams had sneaked ahead before Edwards followed him through into second two laps later.
At the flag, it was Williams in control again with a three second advantage over Edwards, with Payne a further six seconds adrift. But Edwards’ fourth and second have given him a jump on Ingram in the championship with 170 points to Ingram’s 158, while Payne sits in third on 143.
