Farmer grabs Championship lead with Oulton Park victory

Tyco BMW’s Keith Farmer picked up his fourth victory of the season, and the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship lead, after getting the better of Alex Olsen on the penultimate lap at Oulton Park.

It was Farmer who grabbed the holeshot, but by lap four he had dropped back to third place, as Alex Olsen and Billy McConnell battled for the lead.

With four laps to go Olsen grabbed the lead from a struggling McConnell, who had tyre wear issues, and Farmer began to chase the leader down. On the second to last lap the Clougher man pasted Olsen and began to pull a gap.

The Tyco BMW man crossed the line to take his fourth win of the series, and the Championship lead. Alex Olsen finished second with Taylor MacKenzie third.
