Harworth race ace Dean Hipwell ended his British Supersport Championship season on a high with a seventh-placed finish, writes Roy Cross.

Battling in wet and windy conditions, Hipwell rode a well-controlled race to see him start in 16th on the grid for Sunday’s feature race at Brands Hatch.

Several crashes ensued in the fifth lap because of the terrible racing conditions, however, Hipwell fortunately managed to avoid the danger and controlled the Globalnet Triumph home in seventh place - much to the delight of the CDH Racing team. Photo supplied by Roy Cross.
