Following on from runner up placings at Thruxton, Mallory Park and Cadwell Park already this season, Virgin Mobile Yamaha R6 Cup rider Gareth Glynn added another second placing to his tally in today's penultimate round at Oulton Park in Cheshire.

Despite the changeable weather which plagued the weekend at his local circuit, the 22 year old Motor Vehicle Technician from Lowton, Greater Manchester recorded his seventh successive front row start during Saturday's qualifying session and was looking strong in the early stages of the race before getting embroiled in a dice with the leading bunch. Glynn dropped behind the two leading riders but when Richard Wren and Adam Jenkinson crashed out, he was left to battle it out for the lead once more. '

Glynn was well placed going into the last lap but any hopes he had of clinching his inaugural win in the series went when he nearly crashed exiting the Hizzy's Chicane which meant he was unable to challenge eventual winner Guy Sanders.

"I was looking down at my bike on the last lap as I had a problem with the rear end and I wasn't sure what it was. It was a hard race and I'm really pleased to be on the podium again but I desperately want that win at Donington. I'm getting fed up with collecting second place trophies, now I want a winner's one also" said Glynn who moved up to third place in the standings as a result.

The final round takes place at Donington on Sunday September 19th.
