Jon Railton completed a podium double as he enjoyed his best round of the Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup season so far.

The Little Paxton-based racer was in terrific form at the Brands Hatch GP track last weekend – enjoying spells in the lead of both races at the Kent circuit.

Railton took second spot in the first race, which was cut short due to heavy rain, on Saturday before following up in the dry with third spot in the second contest the following day.

“Two podium finishes and two strong points-scoring results are exactly what I needed,” said Railton, who rides for the Boast Plumbing Supplies squad.

“I’m really happy with the weekend went after a couple of retirements lately.”
