ANDOVER Moto3 ace Jake Archer left the Hel Performance British Motostar Championship with the maximum 50 points last weekend.

He enjoyed a double success at Oulton Park and heads the riders' championship with 95 points from a possible 100 so far.

Having left round one with a win and a second place the City Lifting rider was aiming to build on that success and extend his championship lead from nine points.

Qualifying saw Archer quickly slot into the top of the timesheets where he stayed throughout the session.

He finished with a 1:44.072 which although put him just 0.160 ahead of his team-mate he was almost 1.3 seconds ahead of the third quickest rider.

The first race of the weekend was on Sunday afternoon.

The Andover ace took the hole shot and was closely followed by his teammate, Jack Scott and Storm Stacey.

However, it did not take long for the two City Lifting riders to stretch away building a gap to the rider in third.

The two teammates battled each other hard for the race victory.

With three laps remaining his teammate had a technical issue and ran off track losing some positions.

This left Archer out front on his own. Without anyone pushing him he remained focused and came across the line with a seven second margin.

Monday saw the second race of the weekend and having recorded the fastest lap in race one Archer was again on pole position.

He made another good start but this time it was just Stacey that kept him honest tucking in behind the City Lifting rider throughout most of the race.

Archer was aware that his rival was waiting to pounce in the closing stages of the race and cleverly managed to put some back markers between him and Stacey on the final lap.

It was close but Archer took his second win of the weekend.

Archer now has 95 points in the championship and leads Stacey in second by 31. His City Lifting teammate is third just two points further back.

Archer said, “I came with the intention of taking two wins, especially after a small mistake at Brands Hatch meant I didn’t score maximum points there.

"It was good fun battling with my teammate in the first race and then Stacey in the second and we go to the next race feeling really positive. I must thank Ryan Saxelby for an excellent bike and all my sponsors including City Lifting, Kovara Projects and HJC helmets.”

The next round will be at Knockhill in Scotland on the weekend of the July 6 to 8.
