Australian rider Arthur Sissis has claimed his debut victory in the Pirelli National Superstock 600 class, dominating on a drying track to finish 11s ahead of second place. It was pole man Brad Jones who grabbed the holeshot initially, but Tom Oliver moved through on the final corner to lead at the end of the opening lap.
A crash on lap two saw the pace car deployed for two laps and as the race resumed Oliver was able to maintain his lead as Bradley Perie moved into second and Championship leader Dan Stamper third.
With the track quickly drying however, Sissis set a number of fastest laps to close down the leaders, eventually taking over front running on lap eight where he was able to cruise away to his maiden race win. Stamper finished second with Oliver third whilst Jones eventually crossed the line in 17th.
