MAX Cook took the Hel Performance Motostar British Standard Class championship in style at Oulton Park.

The 14-year-old wrapped up the title, with two rounds remaining, after two very entertaining races at the Cheshire circuit.

Having finished second in the first race, he only needed to finish in front of his main rival to lift the winner’s trophy. He did better than that, he won the race.

The Isambard School pupil has scored 436 points, 115 more than second place with just 100 to play for. Max’s year has been one of dominance with 14 victories, a total of 17 podiums and numerous lap records.

Cook said: “On that last lap of race two I think my pass at Shell Oils was my best overtaking move ever.

“As soon as I came out of the last corner I was like, “I’ve done it”.

“I stood up on the bike, I was jumping up and down as I crossed the line. It was the best feeling ever.

“There are so many people to thank for helping me get this title. Gary and Nikita at Wilson Racing for the superb bike, Danny Webb and the whole team for everything they’ve done to help us win the title. Also huge thanks to all my sponsors for help and support.”

After winning the opening race by just 0.110 seconds, Cook knew that he just had to beat nearest rival Victor Rodriguez to take the Standard class crown.

When the lights went out Rodriguez was quick off the line and took the lead in the race. On lap two, Cook managed to get himself in front but was unable to breakaway from the chasing pack.

Cook slipped back to second with Rodriguez in third before the Swindon teenager regained the lead on the penultimate lap.

On the final lap, Rodriguez cut underneath Cook at Cascades to take the lead.

The class leader then rode defensively to try and keep the 14-year-old behind him but made a small error at Island Bend and allowed Cook to go past the Spaniard before Cook went on to take the win by more than a second.

Meanwhile, Charlie Nesbitt achieved his highest qualifying result of the year in the latest round of the Moto3 JWC.

The 16-year-old then followed that up with an eighth place finish in the first race, however, he was unable to finish the second.

“Apart from race two, obviously, it’s been a great weekend,” Nesbitt said. “Qualifying was good, my best of the year.

“Race one was awesome, an eighth place to follow up the seventh at Estoril.”
