Cadwell Park's Party in the Park certainly lived up to its name for the local teams when they put in some stunning performances.

The RAF Regular and Reserves team from RAF Marham had lots to shout about as their rider Jake Dixon put the 1000cc Kawasaki into fourth place on the grid for race one.

When the lights went out Leon Haslam took the lead with Shane Byrne in second and Dixon slotted into third.

It wasn't long before he was up to second and then took Haslam as they went on to the Park Straight for the fourth time and set about consolidating his lead.

Haslam had other ideas though and put the youngster firmly back in his place to go on and take the win with Byrne third.

Race two saw Dixon squeeze through a gap between Byrne and James Ellison to try for the lead as the lights went out, but it was Lee Jackson who mugged him. By lap five Dixon had the lead and was pulling away when he crashed out at Hall Bends on lap nine, the win finally went to Ellison.

It is still possible for Dixon to make the final showdown and it would be a brave man to bet against it.
