Jon Railton secured his first points of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship season on Sunday.

The local racer finished 10th in the latest round of the series at Knockhill in Scotland.

He qualified in 15th place and made headway in the race courtesy of a couple of smart overtaking manouevres and a couple of higher-placed riders hitting the deck.

Railton’s reward was six points and he said: “Our previous results haven’t really reflected the improvements we have been making, but everything seemed to click at the weekend and it is great to have a few points on the board.

“I said earlier in the season that my target was to feature in the top 10 on a regular basis and hopefully this is the start.”
