In the Gabriel Insulations Open Expert Championship its Jamie Skuse on the Tony Maunders Racing Suzuki who extended his Championship lead at the last round and now heads the Stone Supplies / MotoXtreme Kawasaki of Jordan Carter (Pictured No 30) by 23 points with Kelvin Townsend on the Tony Maunders Racing Yamaha in 3rd, but there is plenty of other talent in attendance including James Kensington, Jason Brooke, Sam Gabriel, Josh Taylor, Tom Moore, Jake Penny, Tommy Alba, Lewis Barfoot plus returning after missing the last round is Luke Dean on the Meredith Mx Suzuki to name a few.
