This was showcased in full by Jamie Hodson quickest following lap speed of 111.977 mph.

Dean Osborne (110.875 mph) and David Lumsden (110.224 mph) both underlined their potential podium finishing credentials, whilst Australia’s Royce Rowe (109.829 mph) is definitely one to watch.

Lightweight:

Dan Sayle’s domination of the Lightweight class continues, as lap speed of 106.187 mph, left him well clear of his nearest pursuers.

2015 Newcomers C race winner Elwyn Fryer (99.456 mph) and RS 125 Honda mounted Nigel Moore (99.426 mph) both impressed, as did Roger Smith (98.700 mph) and Mike Carter (97.267 mph).
