WOODCHESTER-BASED Jordan Weaving put in another strong performance in treacherous weather conditions at Cheshire's Oulton Park at the weekend to maintain his lead in the British Motostar Championship.
The 17-year-old is not a fan of wet conditions and a downpour minutes before the race left him feeling cautious over the 10 laps.
However, the teenager rode a mature race, working his way through the pack to earn a podium finish.
Weaving had to try some risky moves in the final lap to hold off American Jayson Uribe and their elbows touched at least twice at 140mph along the Island Bend section.
Weaving has yet to finish off the podium throughout 2014 and race winner Joe Irving was not able to make much of a dent in his championship lead which now stands at 14 points.
"I got a bad start and went from third down to about ninth," said Weaving.
"As the race went on I got more and more confidence and began to hunt down the front group. I fought hard for the podium, which meant in the end I lost just five points in championship race.
"It could have been worse so I'm happy to end the weekend on a good spot."
