Stroud race ace Myles Wasley was in the points on his KTM 390cc at Snetterton.

Wasley is now seventh in the championship on 112 points ahead of the Brands Hatch race weekend next month.

The Aqua Construction rider competed in two races over the weekend, but it all started with free practice late on Friday afternoon.

He completed nine laps of the track and quickly began to improve his lap times. By the time he clocked the fifth best time, a 2:22.956, he had improved by more than three seconds in the session.

Rain disrupted qualifying and Wasley finished ninth.

Wasley lined up at the end of row three. He sliced through the field on the first lap into fourth position. In the early couple of laps he was involved with Will Lathrope and Fox Moreton as they all battled for third spot.

It was an exciting race as places changed regularly with Wasley down to fifth and as high as third.

Unfortunately, he ran on in turn two and was pipped for the last podium spot on the last lap.

There was delay to race two after a serious accident on the sighting lap, which resulted in Caleb Smith be airlifted to hospital.

The grid for the second race was based on the fastest laps of the first race. With Wasley's superb performance he was elevated to fourth position for the start of race two.

After a positive start he slipped back two positions on lap three as Danny Bojko came through with Fox Moreton.

He was involved in a four-way fight for fourth place, which also involved fending off the challenge of Connor Thomson behind.

Wasley crossed the line in sixth position with four riders separated by just over half a second in a truly exciting finale to the weekend.

Wasley said: “I really enjoyed the first race battling through from the third row to finish where I did. The second race was difficult for everyone, after what happened to Caleb before the start.

"I finished the race in sixth after some tough battles with other riders.

"However, I picked up some good points in the championship and I’m only one point behind sixth place now. I’m really looking forward to riding the Brands Hatch GP circuit again in August. I will be working on pace in the first few laps and looking to improve further in the championship, hopefully securing a spot in the World Championship in Assen later this year.”
