Harpenden racer Jack Scott suffered a mixed weekend in the latest round of the Aprilla Superteen – winning the first race before crashing out in race two.
The 15-year-old was racing in round five of the series at the Oulton Park Circuit and managed to claim pole position after qualifying.
Dry track conditions on Saturday saw Scott lead the race from start to finish with a 10 second gap.
However, in true British summer style, the afternoon was plagued with on-off showers which meant Scott went out for race two on wet tyres.
He got off to a great start, gaining a similar 10 second gap to the previous race.
Unfortunately, the weather took its toll, and on the penultimate lap he lost his front wheel, resulting in a failure to finish.
Fortunately both rider and bike came out fine, with a positive outlook for the next race at Rockingham.
