The racing action at this evenings club road races matched the scorching weather.
With a nagging headwind on sections of the Rockingham Speedway circuit it still didn't deter some aggressive racing with riders jumping away in a bid to score maximum points in the chase to be crowned King or Queen of Rockingham.
In the 9 lap race Fraser Ayears got away in a group of 4 with Stuart Dawkins, Mark Chapman and Jon Durnin.
They worked well together until the final lap, after which Fraser and Jon eased open a small gap. Going into the final hairpin Jon kicked hard out of the corner to take the B group race, as Fraser lunged for the line he slipped to fourth after a fantastic brave effort.
In the A race Jonny Unwin made the most of knowing Rockingham inside out to take the victory after 12 laps from Rob Moore.
Millie van Nierop won the six lap race from Claire Moore.
After two rounds Unwin is top of the leader board with Millie leading the Under 18's.
