"We had a few little issues with the bike but that’s been sorted and we are happy with it, plus the objectives for the weekend have also been smashed.

“I’d like to thank my dad and Tye Stamford-Kinton so much for all their hard work making this happen.

"I’m loving my Surefit Carpets Doncaster Ducati and I can’t wait for the next round at Cadwell Park on August Bank Holiday.”

Duggan lies 20th on the Ducati TriOptions Cup leaderboard.
