Pole­sit­ter Ed­ward Moore led race one away but Sut­ton had gained the up­per­hand by the end of the first lap. Al­though Moore went back ahead into Knicker­brook, the pres­sure told as they ar­rived at Is­land for the third time.

“Once I was ahead I just put my head down and got away,” said Sut­ton as he eased to a 2.8s vic­tory.

Moore was soon un­der pres­sure for se­cond too, as Zanetti closed in and their duel brought Oliver Will­mott into con­tention. But it was Zanetti that lost out as Will­mott max­imised his op­por­tu­nity to se­cure se­cond as Moore was wide again at Is­land on lap seven.

Zanetti came back to snatch third as they started the penul­ti­mate lap, leav­ing Moore to take fourth from Adam Batty and Ethan Ham­mer­ton.

Moore man­aged to re­tain the open­ing lap lead in race two af­ter Sut­ton had mus­cled his way past Zanetti at Old Hall on the open­ing lap. But by the end of lap three it had be­come a four-car lead train. Sut­ton soon hit the front from Moore, Zanetti and Batty.

Hav­ing seen off Moore a cou­ple of laps later, Zanetti had the lead into Old Hall as they started lap six and that left the rest to fight for se­cond. Moore re­gained se­cond and just held on de­spite Sut­ton’s con­tin­u­ous pres­ence, while Batty, Char­lie Kennedy and Will­mott com­pleted the top six.
