In front of a healthy crowd Cooper found the form that has eluded him in the early part of the season with Rockstar Motul Suzuki rider setting the pace early with the fastest qualifying time and then going on to capitalize with two moto wins and a 4th to score his first outright win for the year ahead of Billy Mackenzie and Mr consistent Jay Marmont. The New Zealander came from well back in moto one to pass Mackenzie in the closing laps to take a come from behind win and then in moto two he lead from start to finish, the final moto was the only blot on his copy book when he finished fourth. ‰ÛÏThe last few weeks have been massive for me and the team,‰Û

Marmont has retained his Series lead and now sits 16 points clear of Kawasaki Racing Team‰Ûªs Billy Mackenzie. Mackenzie moved back up to second in the standings at the expense of Tye Simmonds who had an unlucky round finishing 5th overall, despite winning the final moto and second in the second moto. A DNF with in the first moto when his bike locked up cost him good points as he was in with a chance of the win. "This was my first win in the Pro Open class that‰Ûªs why I had mixed emotions," Simmonds said. "If I did well in my first moto, I could have possibly taken lead in the Championship, but instead I have dropped back to third in the Championship. Overall though it‰Ûªs my best individual race results in the Pro Open, and I rode the best I ever have, so I‰Ûªm happy.‰Û
