Widely acknowledged as the most picturesque race circuit in the country, Oulton Park is recognised as much for its stunning surroundings as the spectacular racing that takes place on its hallowed tarmac. Voted the best UK circuit by BSB fans in 2007, Oulton Park features rapidly changing gradients and blind crests, and presents a supreme challenge to riders. Spectators can enjoy fantastic views of the action, with the outside of Knickerbrook in particular a favourite of the crowds.

Chris Walker stunned his title rivals in the third round of the MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship by taking the victory in the first of the two races ahead of Shane 'Shakey' Byrne who became the sixth rider from six different teams to taste the victor's champagne.

For Walker it was an emotional ride to glory, his first in MCE BSB since winning in September 2000 at Brands Hatch and the Pr1mo Bournemouth Kawasaki rider who drew deeply on his years of experience to master the difficult drying conditions at the Cheshire circuit.

 Byrne had to work hard to take the victory next time out. His Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki team-mate Stuart Easton made the early charge with Josh Brookes and Tommy Hill, once they had taken Walker in hot pursuit.  But, the former two times winner of the title was soon reeling them in, moving into second place just into the second half of the race.

Hill, who on Sunday had won the race postponed from Brands Hatch aboard his Swan Yamaha, was under intense pressure and it was no surprise that Byrne pushed ahead of him at Lakeside with two laps remaining to take victory.
