Another great weekend racing for Elliot, taking pole position and 3 race wins and unfortunately a DNF in the Team Green Junior Cup (TGJC), and for the third time this season he was awarded the Kawasaki TGJC rider of the day prize. Elliot has extended his lead to 86 points in the TGJC championship.
The next round is Donington Park 16-17th June.

Friday 27 th April Test Day
Lots of rain and problems with visor misting meant that Elliot missed around half of the test day track time, but thankfully it was enough to re-learn the circuit.
Saturday 28 h April
Lots more rain and a very muddy paddock made conditions difficult. A wet qualifying saw Elliot take the fastest lap of 1:59:329, which placed him the fastest by 2.436s on P1 of the combined grid
TGJC with the Senior 300 class
Race 1: A wet and raining race, by the end of the first lap Elliot had pulled a 4.454s lead demonstrating he had regained his confidence in the wet. He continued to extend his lead over the 7 lap race to win by 36.932s .
Race 2: Due to the bad weather and delays caused by 28% of entire meetings riders suffering a DNF, race 2 was carried over to Sunday.
Sunday 8 th April
Race 3: Starting from combined grid pole position on an almost dry track, we chose dry tyres. Elliot led every lap over the finish line taking the win by 13.89s .
Race 4: After starting from pole and making a good start to lead the race unfortunately due to the very muddy paddock and mud on his boots his foot slipped off the foot peg causing him to crash out on the first lap.
Race 5: Due to not recording a lap time in the previous race Elliot had to start from the back of the grid. But showing his sheer determination still managed to take the race win by 3.785s in a shortened 5 lap sprint race,
