BRITISH Motostar Champion Jake Archer ended his season in fine style with a victory in the final round of the championship at Brands Hatch.

The Andover ace had already clinched the title going into the finale, in the previous round at Oulton Park.

The18-year-old collected a double podium as he finished second in race on, before winning his final, outing for his 11th victory of the campaign.

He finished the year with 375 points and a winning margin of 63.

In Saturday's qualifying the 32 GP and standard class Moto3 riders took to the 2.4 mile Brands Hatch circuit for the 30-minute session.

Apart from minor changes Archer’s 1:33.397 was good enough to put him second on the grid, with teammate Scott on pole position.

With the championship already sealed Archer had been asked to try and help his teammate secure second spot in the series.

Riding with the number one on his bike Archer made a solid start paying attention to where rider Storm Stacey was.

Stacey led Scott by 11 points in the battle for runner-up spot.

Scott made a good start taking the race lead. At the midway stage when it was apparent that Stacey was not going to be able to catch Scott, Archer moved through the field to finish second.

Scott was now just one point behind Stacey.

The 12 lap race on Sunday was in terrible conditions. The rain had come down and there was standing water on the circuit.

With his team duties complete Archer made a great start and took the holeshot.

There were a large number of riders that crashed out in the slippery conditions but Archer led the race from lights to flag.

With his teammate finishing second Team City Lifting secured a one-two in the races and the championship.

Archer said: "The season couldn’t have gone any better. I’m delighted to have finished the season with a win. As always I need to thank all those people that have helped me win this championship.

"This includes, Ryan Saxelby for a superb bike each race weekend, City Lifting, Kovara Projects, HJC Helmets, Sureweld, Euroclad, Radmat and Safety Industrial plus all my supporters and those members of the Jake Archer 47 club.”

Archer is already making plans for the 2019 season which will see him ride a Moto2 machine in the British Superbike series with a new team.
