“IT doesn’t get much better than that” was the verdict of Lymm rider Sean Neary as he won on his latest outing at Brands Hatch.

The victory was his second of the current Ducati Performance TriOptions Cup season and moves him up to third in the overall rider standings.

Neary was running third on Sunday when race leader Rob Guiver crashed out – an incident the Team SMC rider thought was his chance to attack.

He retook the lead from Josh Day and pulled clear to back up his win at Donington Park in the last round.

“It doesn’t get much better than that,” he said.

“I got a decent start but then began to struggle as the front was tucking in quite a lot of areas.

“When Guiver went down, it changed the race somewhat and I thought ‘now is my chance' and put the hammer down.

“I was really pushing as I wanted that win so much.

“Luckily there were not many laps left as there was nothing left on my front tyre.”

The win completed an excellent weekend for Neary, who finished second in Saturday’s weather-affected opening race.

He was running second and hunting down race leader Guiver when rain forced a temporary halt to proceedings.

After the restart, Neary shot into the lead but Guiver eventually took his leaders’ spot back and the Lymm man had to settle for second place.

He now has 107 points in the overall standings – only 16 behind second-placed Guiver but 59 adrift of championship leader Day.

The series now takes a break before the riders reconvene at Snetterton on July 19.
